This round robin is an extention of a wonderful group of talented , generous and spirited traders, the Traveling Daylilies, who when at all possible trade daylilies. The way into this group is to have traded with at least one of us and to be recommended for membership by one or more members of the group. We are not snobs, we just want to protect each other and you from any game traders... should there be any. If you know any of us, email privately and they will be allowed to get you in on their recommendation. We'd love to have you!

Shirley, count me in! Not sure about the roses...I don't do roses, unless it's a dozen delivered to my door :). Whoever gets me can substitute. What is the deadline?

Dawnn, are you horizontal? That can be a good thing .

Canna


 o
RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Canna and everyone Yes please substitute and just let your partner know about it in the package. I had swore off roses because I had no luck with them but now all of a sudden the ones I planted last year are doing great so I want more.

Shirley

Shirley: Count me in! (and send me canna's rose! LOL)

Does anyone here sew? My mom got the coolest thing at the Philadelphia Flower Show. She paid $25 for the thing and anyone who sews could whip up about 25 of them in no time. I lent it to a lady at work, she is copying it to make as a girl scouts mother day project, but as soon as I get it back I will post it if anyone sews. It was really cool, there were cone shaped and square "bags" made out of outdoor fabric. Some were lined so you could put fresh flowers in them others had some sort of landscaping fabric backing so that you can plant flowers or plants in them. They were really neat!

I am still at school but bored to tears. Headed for home tomorrow night! woo hoo!

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone,
Dawn, sorry to hear about the bed rest, but you are one healthy individual, things will be fine.

Anne, I would love to be in the drawing for the book. I received a flower press for Christmas, so the book would be the perfect addition.

After watching 'Steel Magnolias', I thought 'Shelby' was a girls name in the south.

My Dad fell and broke his hip on Sunday night. Just had his surgery at 7 pm last night (wed). I can't tell you the problems we had trying to get an orthopedic surgeon in to see him and do the surgery. Finally we complained to admin. and got a surgeon for him, seems they were all on vacation, at seminars or had a full schedual. The workers have all been great though. So I've been almost living at the hospital ... he has been out of it because of the high dose of pain killers they have him on ... pulling out his IV, trying to get out of bed.
His surgery went fine. I'll be back at the hospital soon for most of the day.

I need advice from all the 'Northern Climbing Rose Growers'. When do you prune your climbing rose? I've read to prune them late winter, early spring .... Is that NOW?

Shirley, how great that you set up an Easter Swap. Sounds like a good one, but I'm going to sit this one out. I just got a ton of lilies/glads/callas from 2 different co-ops.
I wish I was there to see all your plants popping up.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Happy Birthday Mary! Come out, Come out and visit us for a bit.

Shirley, is a gift certificate for the lilies/daylilies for our partners from one of their favorite mail order nurseries acceptable?

I will be real surprised if any of my dayliles, and/or lilies would be ready for trade. Since I'm new to them most are too small to share.

I'm ready for a day of working outside, but wouldn't you know it, it looks like rain.

Sharon I have your name down.

If anyone else is interested let me know. Tomorrow night at 8 p.m is the deadline. because I will send it out on my way home from work on Saturday Morning.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good Evening Everyone!

Sharon, my Dh picked your name. I will put it in the mail to you tomorrow. When I lived in Iowa, the only canes I pruned off the climber were any that might be dead, all others were left. Is your dad still in the hospital? I do hope he is feeling better.

Dawn, How are you doing? When you can, please keep us updated.

MaryB, You've been real quiet,I sure hope all is ok with you and your family.

I didn't get outside today, it rained again, and the only day that rain is not in the forcast is Wed.

Have a great Week-end,
LIFE IS GOOD,

The swap sounds like fun and I'm ready for some garden-related fun about now. So tired of looking at half-melted dirty snow mounds and mud.

Count me in but, like Canna, hold the rose bush. The only roses that thrive here despite my blatent neglect are two ancient Climbing Blazes. The only rose I'm willing to pay attention to and love and sing to is Brian Lee, a precious miniature sent to me by Jo.

Let me know who's my partner and when the mailing deadline is and I'm all set.

Great to see you back, Melissa. I missed you!

Dianne


 o
RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good Morning Everyone,
I'm still here - alive and well. I should say alive and tired. I've worked 33 out of the last 35 days. I am just plain beat! I have this weekend off and I believe the weather is supposed to be good so looking forward to some wonderful ME time in my gardens getting some clean up done.

Also haven't been around because I was unable to open our last 9500 post with all the pictures. Yep, I'm one of those lives in the country, still on dial up people. This morning though when I got on here and saw it mentioned that Dawn is on bedrest, I went back and let it load (took about 15 minutes) so I could get the details on Dawn.

Dawn, I hope all is continuing to go okay with you since you are now resting as the doctor ordered. I know I don't have to scold or remind you - I know you will always do what's best for Talon no matter how hard it will be to stay down. Please do keep us updated on how you're doing. I'll be saying a prayer for you. Love you.

Sharon, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad's fall. 3 days is WAY too long for someone to be left before being seen by a surgeon. Good thing for him you were there pulling for him! I'll be saying a prayer for him as well that he is kept as pain free as possible and heals quickly.

It was so exciting to read Marea's post that she was pulling the plug on her computer and heading to the truck for the last trip over the mountain. Somewhat sad, but what a new adventure for them. My hope for them is to find happiness and contentment at their new home and that Marea is able to put her 3000 plant pot ghetto into the earth and be home for good. Marea, you do know we are all feeling a little bit of anxiety right now for you so please do post as soon as you can and let us know all is okay with you. Love you too.

Susan, How is your finger? The poor puppy ofcourse didn't mean to do it. Did you need stitches?

Shirley, I'll join in on the Easter swap. I was thinking last night that it was about time for a swap that involved some real live plants! I'll have to opt out on the rose also please. Just can't grow them - too high maintenance for me. Thanks for hosting!

Welcome back Melissa and Cody.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! Thanks also for the e-card that Susan sent on the group's behalf. Oh my gosh, it totally cracked me up and made me laugh on a day that otherwise pretty much STUNK! Worked all day and came home to three fighting kids.

Gonna cut this short and try to head outside for a bit. My daughter made all county chorus and her concert is at 1:30 today so I'm going to try to squeeze in a couple of hours outside first.

Promise I won't stay away so long.

Anita
Annie
Canna (no Roses)
Dianne (no Roses)
Mary B (no Roses)
Melissa (Wants Canna's Rose) LOL
Nancy
Paul
Shirley

9 so far. If you end up sending to Canna, Dianne, or Mary B. please send something off their want list or some other plant available now, no Roses.

Annie-Yes gift certificates will be great. Either from garden or purchased.

Sharon-How is your Dad? Sure hope things are getting better with him. When we had Dad in the hospital he would pull out the IV and try to get out of bed too. They said they could not tie him in the bed because it was against the law. We had a terrible time with it.
Will miss you in the swap. I have tiny little daylilies popping up from the daylily seeds you sent me. I can't wait to see what they will look like. Should bloom next year right? I'm just now getting into Roses and I pruned mine in late Fall. They look great so far this year.

The deadline for signing up for the Swap will be Sunday March 25th at 5:00 p.m. I will post who you will be sending to at 5:15 p.m. Everyone should mail theirs by April 3rd.
I will e-mail everyone so they will know, if they have not checked the posts lately, that we are having the Easter Swap.

Happy Extended Birthday Mary B.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi All,

Sharon,
I am so sorry to hear about your dad. You keep on top of them. I have spent the last several years taking charge of my moms health care. The poor nurses are always the ones who get all the flack, they are overworked and understaffed, so sometimes things can slip past them. If you keep track, things will go much smoother. And, I have found they really do appreciate the help.
As to roses, here in z5 I always wait till it is just starting to warm up enough so you can see the very first buds beginning to form on the canes. They i prune off any winterkill, and any canes that look untidy, or that are curling in towards the center, to open it out and keep it from getting too thick in the center of the bush. It keeps the airflow going so diseases don't start.

MaryB,
I am SO glad to see you posting. I've been worried about you. Wow, 33 out of the last 35 days. Girl, you need to slow down. Take it from me, I've been there. You will burn yourself out. You can't do that. You need to try and take it easy. Trust me, your workplace can live without you. Your family most certainly cannot. Warm hugs.
And a great big "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" Sorry I missed it. More warm birthday hugs.

Shirley,
I will sit this one out. I only have spring bulbs up right now. Maybe one leaf of the occasional early daylily (still have some large patches of snow)And, I know it sounds strange, but i cannot afford to purchase "anything". That is how tight our budget is. So, thank you, but I will wait till later on. Maybe in a month or 2 I can join in. For now, I will sit back and enjoy seeing all the goodies that are sent.Hugs.

Hi Nancy,
I am ROTFL!!!!!! Raffle them off? You are so funny. I love it. And, I believe the answer to the question of "will anyone take them?" Is, umm, "NO". Hahahahaha. big hugs!!!

Hi Canna,
Hi Jean,
Hi Paul,
Hi Annie,
Hi Di,
Hi Anita,
Hi Melissa,

Have a great day everyone,
big warm hugs to all,

Jo

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

HI All
I have great news! I just freed my yard from it's leaf grave and there are lots of little greenies poking up out of the ground.; They didn't kill everything! I am jumping for joy!!!!!!

Hey dirtpig I owe you lilies from the July 2005 trade! If you want unnamed ones I can send them out now, there are pictures on my homepage of the ones I have and I know where they are! If ya want the named variety (I don't remember the exact rules from that swap) I will have to grab some at the lily store this week. Let me know please!!!!

Canna has hosta nubbies ROFLMAOOOOOOOO, don't know why that sounded so funny but it did!

Does anyone want some holly seedlings???? I have 6 that are about 3 inches high and one that is about 10" high and they need to go. I am sure I will find more as I uncover the rest of the beds, but if anyone wants them they are up for grabs.

Back to the raking!

Jean-There are still lots of SHOWER related items one could send, I just mentioned those for maybes. There are figurines for outside that have unbrellas over them, end on hoses for SHOWERING plants, any kind of rain, shower related things would work. Gloria sent me a hand painted watering can for Christmas that I just love. I don't know if someone she knows painted it or if she bought it painted but it's beautiful. I used to have some watering hose guides that kept the hose off your flowers. You just stuck them in the ground away from your flowers and the hose stayed put.

Jo will miss you in this swap. Please stay in touch and thanks for the roses tip. I planted two at work and bought a nice white one for myself. I want a rose garden for future generations here.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi to all! Looks like I missed some things by not checking in more often.

Dawn, sorry to hear about the early labor and need for bedrest. Just mind your Dr and take good care of little Talon! Everything will be fine.

Marea, glad to hear from you and that you are getting settled in your new place.

Happy belated birthday to Mary B!

Sharon, Sorry to hear about your Dad's fall and surgery. I hope he is doing better now.

Welcome back to Melissa and Cody.

A SWAP?! I would like to participate in the Easter Swap if its not too late! I do not have any roses. Have always been a little afraid of roses in this awful climate, but quess I am up for anything!! I did see some Friday at Menards for sale, so they must survive around here.

The snow is just about gone and feels like spring outside! I even uncovered some of the beds where the little plants were trying to poke through the wet leaves. What a mess! I may be sorry as the weatherman says more snow by next weekend! Can always hope that is wrong or it melts quickly.
I am so ready for spring and GARDENING!

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone, out of the books for some spring living and wanted to say hi.:)

I had a ton of fun yesterday playing in the dirt or should I say mud. The weather was beautiful. I had some things bolt over the winter that needed replanted. Sad as I was that they popped, it felt good to dig and plant.

MaryB, I am so sorry that I missed your b-day. I hope it was as wonderful as you are. A couple of my hosta that you sent me were bolters, do you think they will be ok? Roots were still alive. I have never seen a hosta bolt so that was new for me.

Sharon, I hope your dad recovers quickly. My dad just had hip replacement surgery and is on the road to recovery now. He did really well with it. Unfortunately, his nurses the first few days weren't very good or compassionate following his surgery and it caused complications for him but all is well now. He just shelved his walker and is using a cane.:)

Welcome back Cody and Melissa, I have been buried in the books so I apologize for taking so long.

Dawn, glad to hear you are taking your bed rest in stride. Hope he doesn't break into the world to soon but it sounds like he is ready for his debut.:) Hugs and prayers are on their way.

To everyone else I adore in here a big hello...:):):)Sherri


 o
RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts for my Dad. He is in rehab. now for an intense 2 weeks.

Annie, Thank you so much for the Lovely Book. I'm looking forward to using it this summer. Maybe a Rose?

Have fun all with the Easter Swap.
Oh, and my crocus have finally bloomed. :o)

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi -

I was about to post some pictures - are we not doing pictures any more? There's only 1 beautiful DL (not counting our logo. 'Undercover Angel' is a pretty one, Anita, great photo, all dewy.

I'll post just 3 pix today.

Misty warm overcast made for good picture taking today. So I thought of you all, and thought you might like to see what's up in the Brinkhaven woods.
Hi!See how monochrome everything still is? I like those little trees that keep their dry, white leaves on all winter.

Shirley, your Easter swap sounds fun, but I'll have to pass. Must wait til we've got some spending money and something to trade besides mud (can anybody use pollywogs?)
Lichens are the oddest green
That's why I went out - to photograph the lichens. I want to repaint the room I'll use for sewing and crafting Lichen Green, then turquoise and purple and rose for the rest of everything. It's great fun to do a room when its sole purpse is hobbies and fun!

And here comes the flower...
First Anemones poke through the fallen leaves. Hepatica and Spring Beauties are blooming now, too, also Pulmonaria, Squill and Hellbores. The VA Bluebells and Wolfsbane are coming along fast, and Coltsfoot are adding surprising flashes of brilliant yellow. Their flowers only open when the temperature and humidity make pollination likely, then close and bend down as soon as conditions worsen. Scaly stems, puffballs on the stems later - interesting little plants; too bad they're such a pest!

I soldiered on up the driveway slope - very hard for me! - to the horse barn, to see if the Spicebush are blooming yet. Nope. Cricket came out, all muddy, and nickered at me. She'll be 31 this month. I thought of Jenna, Dawn, and hoped her sorrow is easing some now. Love to you, Jenna.

The cats have decided my Jacob's Ladder bed is a cat box, and only 1 plant is left. Oh well. I'll have to put in more somewhere else. The cats've wanted that spot all along.

Sharon - How's your Dad today? It's good your there watching over him. That way he can let go of all that worry and just deal with what he can't avoid. Mom broke both hips and both healed well after surgery. She was past 80 then. It was hard on her right after the operation, too, what with all the pain meds. Hi, Sharon's Dad! Get better fast!!!

12 Hosta seedlings made it through their first winter! Hoo hah! I backed out of the co-op because of tight finances, (all those gorgeous Hostas!) but I have 10 fat Hostas anyhow :0) These are from the D. Benedict and Noah's Ark seeds, Jean. The Noah's Ark is growing our big, cup-like veined leaves, and several of the DB's are showing subtle streaks. It's fun to see how they'll turn out.

Melissa - The fabric thingies sound interesting - do please post how to do it! I could use some Hollies. Could you use a Witch Hazel seedling? Hammamelis vernalis. I remember the last day of school when I was teaching - much as I liked my work, I didn't even want to SEE a school bus for a month or two! Such a joy when summer vacation comes.

Happy belated birthday, Mary. What a great newsy post! Don't let the fighting kids get you down. Mine fought a lot, for years, then they grew up. They're great friends, now, most of the time. Maybe the fighting bonds them too, somehow.

Marea in transition. As long as she had her plants, her motorcycles and her Herb, she'll settle in anywhere. Keeping her in my heart - love you Marea.

Good to hear Dirtpig neither chews nor showers - must add this info to my Jean file...

Hi, Cody! Tell us all about Georgia.

Thanks for the Rose advice, Jo. Our deer help us entirely too much with pruning our roses! I do have several nice Morden Bluch and a Blaze. I have 2 Dorothy Perkens, too, that the deer have chewed so badly that they just send out 10' long canes flat against the ground! They need an arbor, and chicken wire wrap til they get up more that 5'. The kids gave us a motion detecting device that shoots water when triggered by deer or whatever. We'll try that on the deer, and fox and coyote urine to repel the groundhogs, plus the mother of all fences DH is constructing around the veg garden. Maybe we'll taste a homegrown pea yet.

It's late. I'm off to bed.

Well, I get into my e-mail this morning, and the first thing I see is a wonderful B-day card from y'all.
It is just hysterically funny. and i love it.
All the family stood around and watched it. It was great. Thank you.

Dear Susan,
Thank you for taking the time to send it to me. I really hope your finger is healing and your poor baby isn't feeling bad now. They always look so guilty don't they? (smiles)

MaryB,
Thank you for the wonderful b-day song. I enjoyed it tremendously. =)

Anita,
Thank you for the gorgeous dl pic. and b-day wish.

Barb,
Went for my second PT appt. yesterday. It is really helping. She is having me take it slowly, but the exercises really are working. I still have pain, but when it starts, I can usually do them and most of the pain goes away. And if they aren't enough, I can take my ibuprofen, and soma. So, it is getting better slowly. She told me it has taken me years to get to this point, it is gonna take quite a while to get me better.But, she said I "will" get better. That in time I will be nearly pain free. (smiles) But, I am being very mindful of all she tells me, and it is working, so I am very pleased. Yippeeeeeeee!!!!

Marea,
We really miss you. Please hurry and get your puter up and running.
Hugs

Debbie,
Where are you? Miss you too.

Sherri,
Good to see you poke your nose in here, and out of those books. Miss seeing you post. Remember the old saying, "all work and no play" (grins)

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,
I want flower blooms!!!!!
I have some bulbs up with buds now, and a few very brave early dl's are just peaking up through, but the rest is still all brown.

Barb (again),
my hepatica bloomed last nov. Can you believe it? It isn't showing any signs of life right now. I do hope it didn't die. =(

Sharon,
I just planted all those beautiful dl seeds you sent me. Hope they do as well as the last bunch you sent me.

I have been out chopping my roses down to the ground. We didn't do much with them last year (I wonder why?, smiles) And they are way out of control, PLUS, the rabbits have done a real number on many of the canes. So, I am just cutting them all the way back, and will start over new.

And, Remember!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As weird as it sounds, Roses LOVE bananas. Just dig a shallow trench approx. 10" from base of the bush, and put in a few well ripened bananas, cover and watch your bush take off. I did that with a rose I had that was really struggling.(just one little cane) By the following year, it had grown 2ft in height, and spread over a foot and a half. I have done it with several others with great results as well.

Have a great day everyone,
hugs to all,
Jo

Hope you had a wonderful day, you deserve a few!

Was 83 here today, daylilies are up about 6" higher than this morning and all my seeds have sprouted like little maniacs.Back to seasonable tomorrow (40s) so we will all have colds next week (I know nurses shaking their heads, colds come from germs not cold weather, wet feet, or wet hair LOL)

I still need Paul's address if someone could email it to me

Shirley - I didn't get your magnolia yet, still waiting for a good box from work. Order came in today so hopefully there will be a good one tomorrow morning, sorry for the delay....but...I have Paul's Easter Swap box ready to go to the post office tomorrow morning.
Do we still post or email DC #s ????? sorry it's been a while.
Did flat rate boxes get smaller??? I had to use a large priority mail just to get a rose in it. Hope you like it Paul!
Exhaustion is creeping in and LOST is on tonight, so I better go take a little nap :)

Hi all,
Just a quick stop by to say "HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE!!!!
and "thank you" for all the b-day wishes.
It was a quiet one. DH had to work. But our DD made a special dinner and cake. It was a very nice one.
Hugs to all,

Can somebody please send me Angie's email addy? The one I have in my TD list must be wrong. I keep getting msgs that hers was non-deliverable and that she has no Yahoo addy. It's the same one I've always had for her but maybe she's changed it. Thanks!

JO, Happy belated birthday!

I've been busy getting ready for Shelby's coming home/birthday party tomorrow. I'm getting a bit nervous about his check-up, but I always do. I have faith things will be just fine.

Marea, Happy Early birthday on the 4th. I'm glad you got to your new place, try and keep us informed when you can.

Shirley I sent you an e-mail. I need some information from you about what roses you have and don't have.

Anita, I'm sorry you are sick, get plenty of rest and drink lots of liquids.

I've go much to do and not enough time to get it all done. I guess I have not ordered a sheet cake for a while. Wow, have they really raised in prices. butt........

Balloons for Party $$$

Cake for Party $$$

Invitations for Party $$$

Birthday present for son $$$

SEEING MY SON......PRICELESS!

LIFE IS GOOD,
ANNIE

And forgot to say...............

Nice pictures Nancy, keep them coming.

When I was out raking, my Rasberry Splash, and May Bouquet lungwort had flowers on it this morning.

I'm going to take a break and run to family owned greenhouse that is a couple miles from me. Maybe I will find something else to tuck in Shirley's box.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Wow the weather must be a lot nicer everywhere else. No posts?
It is cold and rainy here all weekend, at least it's not snow but I wish I were outside doing something.

Diann - Brian Lee has become enormous! It is at least 10 fans this year. I am so glad it is still here. Shelby's song is another story...no sign of it yet but fingers crossed.

I actually found some tags with plants so I will update my list as soon as I get a chance.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'm so glad to hear that, Melissa. Brian Lee does spectacularly well for me, too.

I don't know if you're anywhere near this area, but on April 7, I'll be having dinner at Luigi's in Lakehurst at 5pm with my South Jersey in-laws and the man who hybridized and registered Brian Lee for me. Stop in for coffee if it's in your area.

This invitation is extended to anyone who lives close enough (Ellen and ?)

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone!
Maleah to kindergarten already! Wow Canna, time has flown! Congratulations, I think, on your baby girl taking that giant first step - now try not to embarrass her by crying on the school steps... *grin*

Happy Belated Birthday to my daylily sisters, and thanks for the good wishes for mine! I''m really enjoying getting to order off the senior menu! LOL

Here are some thumbnail photos of my plant move, with the results in the first two photos. Naturally I forgot all about photos until the truck was 1/2 unloaded, but these will give you the idea:

















Those are 2x4's and 8 foot sheets of plywood that Herb made the shelves with. HARD work but almost all the plants came through the trip in great shape. The last photo I took yesterday to show you how much the daylilies like it here. I also included a view of the 'Orangery' daffs i was sent last year - can't wait to have a hillside full!

Shirley & Gloria, OF COURSE you are very welcome to come tour Schreiner's and Cooleys Iris with me - but I will take as many photos as I can in case you can't come this year... *grin*

HAPPY EASTER !!


Marea


 o
RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Marea----Oh please yes yes...lots and lots of pictures...
thank you... your daylilies look great...can't wait to see how you plan all the new flower beds...

Canna-I was having trouble getting my rose in the box too.
Hope to have mine all ready to ship out tomorrow.

Shirley

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Marea How wonderful that you made it AND got your pc up and going. I can't believe you moved all those plants. Did Herb think you were wack-o??? It looks like he went above and beyond on this one!

Diane - how cool you will be in NJ! You will be about an hour and 15 away and I would love to stop by for coffee if we weren't already committed to Easter dinner at my moms that night :( But thanks for the invite!

Canna - I can't believe that Maleah is going to kindergarten already, she is far to cute for the evils of school!

Well my evils ones are straggling in from baseball and softball so I guess I should go cook some dinner.

Melissa

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Wow what great weather, I have gotten so much done in the past 2 weeks and now tonight it will be in the low 30's for the next week or so. I had potted some cannas 2 weeks ago and had them outside, they all have leaves. I definately have spring fever.

I need to sign up for somewhere to post my pictures, I used to pay andale but quit that.

Everything is looking good, I did loose a few daylily's again. One of the good ones from Maryotts that we bought got crown rot, I might try and get a replacement on that one since it was expensive.

Looks like everyone is doing good. I love all the pictures.

Nancy I don't have iris yet, you cant be that far from me.

And Marea all I can say is WoW- your husband is a trooper, any guy I know would shake there head if I said I needed to move all of my plants.

Well got to go.

Angie


 o
RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi everyone!
Marea, glad to see the move is almost complete. That was quite a project moving all those plants! Great pics!Have a great birthday tomorrow! Looking forward to the senior discounts someday!

Jo, Belated birthday wishes!

Canna, can hardly believe your baby girl will be going to kindergarten! I may have to grow that rose indoors for awhile!

I am really depressed....it is now 20 degrees out and still falling. The wind is blowing about 30 mph. I think winter is back. Fortunately only a few snow flurries! My poor daylilies will probably freeze off-silly things...
some were up 3-4 inches. Hope they survive! At least the hostas had enough sense to stay hidden yet except for a few just poking through! I did have crocus trying to bloom. Hope everything will survive all this sudden change!I did not cover up anything when I heard how cold it is supposed to be (teens) Figured everything will be 'toast' either way! Sometimes I wonder why anyone would want to live here. I told my DH that once we retire we are not staying in this awful climate!!!GRRRR! I am in a BAD mood. Thanks for letting me vent!

Jean I mailed your box out today! Hope you like everything!
Gee, I hope it does not all freeze en route! Probably is cold there too!

And what are you talking about, "order off the senior menu!", Aren't you 21 years old today?

Loved all the pictures.I had no idea you had that many plants waiting to be shipped. I think hubby deserves a little 'massage' for all that hard work!

Canna, Maleah in school ... she will love it, but we all know it is a 'sniff' for the [hugs] Mom.

Anita, that sure is a pretty iris!

MaryS, I hope your daylilies don't "freeze their silly things off." LOL (not an exact quote, but almost.)

Going to be cold in Michigan too. :o(

Angie, I'm anxious for those lily bulbs I bought from you last year to bloom again.
They were so beautiful and smelled heavenly.
I know what you mean about spring fever ... I planted my Dracunculus bulb from Meijers as soon as I bought it, and it has bloomed already. LOL
Keep those cannas warm!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAREA!!
Hope you enjoy a wonderful day!
Wow! I loved all your plant moving adventure pics. Awesome! Herb is one heck of a guy. Just amazing. Thank you so much for sharing that with us. I had to giggle at all your hoses.....looks like my place, lol.
So, will you continue to grow in pots or will all those babies be goin' in the ground? I'm so happy for you both.

Another lovely photo from Anita's Iris garden. She should open it for tours. : )

Canna, say it isn't so!! I can hardly believe that little beauty is off to school. Is Maleah looking forward?

My Sister and I were just talking about how time flies....my neice Brooklyn is starting to get teeth and I think her Mom is a bit sad. Jenna said, "First she gets teeth, next she'll be off to college".
Speaking of Brooklyn, i've got sooooooo many pictures of her and hope you don't mind if I post one of the latest. My Mom (Grandma Jea Jea) has a "photo shoot" every week when she babysits.

She's 7 mos. old already.

Mary s, I know EXACTLY what you mean about living in a horrible climate. I hear it from DH every single day of the winter. He can't believe we are building a house here and not in New Mexico or Texas (that's where he wants to live). If it wasn't for my family, i'd say okay.

Hi Angie! I wanna' see your pics. www.photobucket.com is free and easy to use. My favorite photo hosting site.
I'm still waiting to see how my DL's did too. I think 'John Peat' is fine, but not sure about the others. No sign of life yet.

Dianne & Melissa, I still haven't had the pleasure of seeing 'Brian Lee' in bloom so please give me a peek when it's bloom time.

Nancy, great pics! I'm pretty jealous of all your blooms. : )

Susan, been thinking about you, Dan, & the rest of the furry family. Hope you are all okay. You haven't had any issues with the pet food recall have you? Many pets in our area have been sick or died. It's just so sad and really infuriating.

Well, a little news from the doctor....i'm a fingertip dilated. Contrax. are still irregular, but I had a ton of them yesterday. It was exhausting. I hope they slow down today. Baby is moving well and his heartbeat is perfect. I'm feeling a bit sick today...kind of nauseated and no appetite. Hopefully it will pass.

DH has been working until dark the past few days, taking advantage of the beautiful weather. He is almost ready to set trusses. Here are a few pics I took the last time I was over there...

A view from down at the road.....

And here are the completed rafters in the living room/dining room. I told DH i'm gonna' need a looooong pole to clean the cobwebs, lol.

We had a small problem with getting the stone for the fireplace......after bringing our first load home the excavator at the jobsite buried all the remaining stone so DH wasn't able to get the 2nd load that we needed. He was really bummed. So, our search for stone goes on.....

But, things are coming along and i'll be so glad to see shingles start to go on. DH will probably start to relax (a little) after that.

Well, I have a long day of laying in bed ahead of me so I better get to it. ; )

Anita, what a beautiful iris! Your gardens must be awesome!

Well for the damage report....so far only the tulips are "flat" this AM...daylilies are still standing upright. We'll see what happens. It was down in the middle teens last night. Snow flurries this AM. Hopefully this cold won't hit you all east of here!

Well off to work! MaryS

I got my swap box from Jean today! What a great surprise for a rainy Wednesday afternoon. And to boot, it's ENORMOUS!!
Here's what she sent (I'm sending psychic kisses for each and every thing)
1. Easter Card--a vintage style painting of a beautiful lenten rose cross
2. 5 Plastic eggs--okay, I'll let you in on a secret Jean CANNOT COUNT! She sent oodles and oodles of plastic eggs stuffed with Starburst jellybeans, a too-cute ceramic platypus, gladiolus bulbs--Mon Amor, Green Star, picotee begonia Yellow/Red and a yellow felt duckling.
3. A garden Surprise--apparently Jean CANNOT READ either! She sent a stained glass hummingbird windchime, a spring-loaded aqua stained glass flower and bumblebee garden stake, a cake plate sized clump of dahlia "Hawaii" tubers, a tuber of Gloriosa Rothschildiana, begonia Bouton DeRose,
4. 3 Lilies--refer to #3 regarding COUNTING--she sent (better pull up a lawn chair and get comfortable, this is gonna take awhile)--
Lily Triumphator (several)
Lily Menorca
Lily Red Hot fragrant
5. Poem about Easter....she sent a lovely poem by Louise Lewin Matthews.
6. Since April brings Showers...and I quote directly from Jean's note "Ok, I cheated."
7. Pack of your favorite gum...Keep the gum, I got enough chocolate to keep me chewing for quite awhile!
8. Rose-an adorable red minature in a cute pot. Perfect for me!

Additionally she sent three large chocolate eggs that are decorated like Faberge eggs (very striking), a bag of malted milk eggs, hundreds of tiny foil covered chocolate eggs, a huge sugar-free (are you taking note, Gloria?) walnut fudge egg, a full o fat and sugar chocolate fudge egg (for Walt) and the neatest thing--a bag of Minnesota Cultivate Wild Rice. At first I thought she sent me grass seed, I really need to get out of the house more!

Whew! I need to rest after checking everything out. Oh, and Peeps! What's Easter without Peeps!

Jean, you are a swapper extraordinnaire. I thank you,

Dianne

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Happy B-Day Marea!!!!!! I hope you enjoy your senior discounts for a long time to come.

Dawn the house looks great and your niece...adorable, no wonder she has photo shoots every week. Hope you are resting and feeling better tomorrow, rest now, soon you will wish you could stay in bed for 2 hours straight!

Wow! That's quite a box. I know Paul got his on Saturday he said he would post as soon as he had some time.

It is freezing here and raining and supposed to be in the 20s for Easter. What happened to Spring? Now I'm glad my little hosta nubbies aren't showing yet!

Another Wednesday night, must be time for Lost. Hope everyone has a good one

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Marea, I'm so glad to see you home with us again! I've missed your smiling words. I can't believe your DH helped you haul all those plants. Mine will do just about anything but I don't know if even he would go that far. You'd better hang on to him. I can't wait til you get the pot ghetto situated.

Anita, sorry but I didn't get your package mailed but it will go out tomorrow. You'll have an Extended Easter. ;-) I would have emailed you but my email is out of commission. I love that iris!

Dawn, it sounds like you're doing just what the doctor ordered. Keep it up so we can see a very healthy Talon. Brooklyn is a little beauty. I can see why you love taking care of her.

Dianne, it sounds like you got some great goodies!

Angie, I guess I am pretty far from you. I think it's about 5 hours to Springfield if I remember correctly. That can make a lot of difference. I'm in the foothills of the Ozarks. In fact they officially begin about 10 miles from my house.

Has anyone ever noticed that flowers seem to bloom by color groups? When the daffs are blooming so is the forsythia, the purple Iris bloom first along with the wild verbena and other wild purple flowers, etc.

When I got home today I had an Easter basket waiting for me from the local Home Extension Club. lol They take goodies to the shut-ins and I guess I've been one lately.

Canna, you'll have to take a couple of hankies with you for when you have to leave Maleah at school. I'm sure she'll love it and you'll get used to having some time to yourself again.

Nite all,

Nancy

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good Morning Everyone..

Shirley,
I skipped #7, as I don't chew gum, so Mary did not get any:( I forgot all about #7 when I was picking things for her box, she should have gotten it on Saturday.

Mary B,
Come out from under the snow & let me know if my box got to you:)

Melissa,
Glad to see you posting again, I'm sure you are thrilled to be out of school again:)
Your sewing projects sound really cool, to bad I don't sew, could you imagine making them to match the colors of our house, to cool. If I knew what Holly I had I might take you up on them, I bought a male & female years ago, tags blew away & one of them died, I have only one that will not flower without a mate, but I don't know which one lived, do you know how to tell?

Sharon,
Hope your Dad is doing better, I have Life Link on my Mom, she thinks I am wasting my money, but $35.00 a month is nothing compared to if she fell & could not get up, she is 75 & has not fallen in a few years, I almost think the LL makes her feel safer whether she wants to admit it or not. I tried for 2 years to get all my brothers & sisters 7 of them to help me pay for it for her, none can be bothered so 2 years ago that's what I did for her for Christmas, a gift I will never regret:)
They are all so pretty, hence why I cant walk in my garden without stepping on Iris:) I wish I had more time for them , they need more care than the Daylilies, so I am sure I have lost a few due to my neglect.
Dracunculus (voodoo lily?) How did you like the smell or am I thinking the wrong thing, I don't know, have been up way to long & it's only 9am:)

Jo,
Glad you had a great B-day!! How are you doing? have not heard from you in a bit.

Cody,
How's life in GA? Getting settled in I bet.

Canna,
Oh, you better just take the box of tissues with you on the first day, Maleah kindergarten, wow has time flown by, Sorry I did not get to make her a snow man this year, by the time I waited for my stupid snowman kit to get here the snow was crap, I will try again next year:)

Jean,
I should have sent my Easter swap to you:0 I forgot the Gum & took the shower things the wrong way:)

Mary s,
Glad to see you again too:0) Was wondering if you got lost..So much for our snow being gone, I woke up to light snow this morning, how about you? Your frozen silly things will be fine:0)Just look on the bright side, you will have good bloom from the ones that wont bloom this year, next year. They should not have tried to rush, but the weather has been so crazy, they think it is time. I tired covering a few things, but have way to many to cover everything:( Hope you are in a better mood:)

Sherri,
Good to see you, I was very disappointed to see my Lee Pickles had bolted over the winter, I did not even try, as it looks like he had crown rot, so sad I really wanted him, luckily I will get a replacement from the place I got him. How's your dirt today? mines covered with snow again.

Dawn,
Thanks for the update, now you know we need 1 more pic of Talon before he decides he's done cooking:) I think he should come out of the oven on or about May 10th:)
Oh, Brooklyn is so beautiful, what a shot, that is priceless, that should be submitted to a beautiful baby contest someplace.

Barb,
Thanks, yes, Mary B truly is an Undercover Angel, that's why I picked that one for her. What are the blue flowers in your post? (Anemones?) I have tried to grow them, I really like them, but they don't like me.

Nancy,
Love your miniature Iris, I will post mine when they bloom, been so long I forgot what color they are:) My Kathryn Hodgkin Iris are blooming right now, I should have gotten a pic yesterday, as we are back to the 20's at night, I covered them along with a bunch of other things blooming, I will go out in a bit & see if they made it through the night, will post a pic if they did, I ran out this morning to put the bills in the mail box & feed the Blue Birds, but it was way to cold to go peek at things then. On time or not, I'm sure I will love what you sent me, but 2? Why lady, 1 would have been more than enough..

Dianne,
Did you decide to forget about the rake for now? I bet you did, looks like you got way more snow than me this time. Ohhh, I am so ready for spring..

Lisa,
Baby D is doing great, I can't wait to see him again, as I had to miss last weekend cuz I was sick, so I wont get him again till the 13th...LONG time from now. Can't wait to let him terrorize the gardens, he loved to walk around last year & look at all the pretty flowers, but it wont be that calm this year, I just hope he don't pluck to many. How are you doing? Did you get much snow last night? Nope, don't smell soil right now, I SMELL SNOW!! Whenever you are ready to do our For the birds swap from 2006 just let me know, I'm sure we should be safe in a few more week's:)

Paul,
When DH's MRI came back with good news, I went in to Paul mode & bought a beautiful Orchid, every time I pass by my dining room table I think of you:)

Marea,
Oh, wow what great pics of your transition, How are the kitty's liking the cat nip? Will shot you an E-mail about the Co-op, I sure hope you do one for us, I know we cant do it here & we are not all members of the other place, hey wait, I think you could do it here?

Annie,
Glad you got to see Shelby & DeAnna. happy to read Shelby's blood work came back good:)

Have a great day all:) Thinking of you all. Sorry if I missed you, I cant remember everything:)

Jean, hugs right back. My sincere condolences on all that snow. Your photos are just beautiful though - those birdies on the snow! And your tablecloth and swap photo is gorgeous. So glad to see your kitty gets to share your presents. (Boy did you SCORE - great box Mary!)
When you said to our beloved returned-home Melissa "..send whatever makes your heart smile. Knowing that will make it perfect", I got tears in my eyes...

and MELISSA !! so happy to hear that you and all those red heads are doing good and you have time to garden again! Did you notice the "Welcome to my Herb Garden" sign you sent me way back when in my nursery photo? *grin*

Nancy - I HAVE noticed that natural bloom color co-ordination!! The early blooming forced Dutch tulips seemed very out of place, all red and glaring... Now the tulip season is starting here, though, so suddenly the purples are changing to red and orange, except for the violas sprouting in all my daylily pots.




Herb just grinned when I told him about all the kudos he got from you guys. I have him hood-winked into believing my plants are valuable is how I got all that help. lol
Are you still a shut-in? Hope your therapy is working fast and you can get out there and garden soon.

Speaking of which - Barbara, I loved that photo of you out touring your planting on your new chair too! Did my heart good.

Sharon - my prayers and best energy for your Dad, too.

Back to taxes, Marea

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Jean-Wow look at all that snow...I can't imagine that much snow. I bet your goodie box was welcomed.

Dawn-Love the picture with the view...Brooklyn is a beautiful little doll among those stuffed teddies and things. When Brittney was 3 we started entering her in beauty contests and went crazy with it. But one great thing was all the bonds she won from them. She had enough money when she wanted her car, to pay for it out of her bank account.

Anita-You made my day with the iris picture...You are right about irises needing more care than daylilies. I find bacterial soft rot alot and have to doctor mine up.
I get mad and swear they are all going, then I see one bloom and I am in love again.

Melissa-Your box is on the way...Hope it gets there soon.
Del. confirmation #01038555749925101810

Great boxes everyone is receiving..I can't believe the ones who don't chew gum....I love chewing gum and buy it by the cases...Melissa you will see what my most favorite is soon.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Hi!

Yes, I am in a better mood today! I was pretty bummed with the weather! We did not get any snow and after seeing Jeans pics, I feel some better! It has been pretty cold the last couple of nights...about 15.....so there was nothing to be done....like trying to cover things.I have noticed that if it gets much below 28 it really doesn't matter! Just hoping they come back. I imagine the tulips and dafs are done for the year but like Anita said...there is always next year. The sun is out today so that helps everyone's mood! No school (no work!) tomorrow-YEY! I sometimes get a bad case of "Zone-Envy" when I see what you southern gardeners are growing.

Jean, so glad to hear the package arrived, and did not have to get cold in the snow. I bet it is pretty cold up there too! Brrrrr! I ordered some "things" too and they will not be here till after May 1st so I will wait till then to send the rest! It will be worth the wait!!!! That should be a safer time for us, both to send and plant. Let's hope it is warmer by then! Your kitty looks like she is quite interested in the package contents, too! How funny...looks as if she is reading the note!

Canna, No package yet but will be watching for it tomorrow so it doesn't get cold! Sometimes Mr Mailman just hangs packages on the mailbox in a plastic bag. I guess he does not want to get out of his little truck!

Looks like I may have a "pot ghetto" in my family room for awhile. They have these bulbs for sale in the stores and they start growing right out of the box. What is one to do till it's safe to go plant them outside but pot them up! It does give us northern gardeners a "spring plant fix".

Well better go. Happy Easter everyone! MaryS

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Barb, I had to go back and look at your picture again. I didn't even notice you in your new chair. I know it's a great help to you. I wondered if you could go out in the woods in them. Does it go over downed limbs and pinecones ok?

Jean, I'm freezing to death just seeing your snow and I love snow. It's about 60 today and I had to light the heater for the first time in about 2 weeks or more. It is beautiful though. Your lilies look pretty. I planted lolipops last year and they were so pretty. I've got a lot of bulblets from a trade a couple of years ago and have no idea what they are and they look like they'll bloom this year. I can't wait. They are one of my fav. plants.

MaryS, I'm glad to know that you are happier today. ;-) I know what you mean about those plants growing out of their containers. We just have to give them a home, don't we?

Anita, I couldn't get everything in 1 box and the 2nd is a smaller one. Some of the things I'm sending you were already up and growing so I packed them in damp paper and plastic. I hope they arrive safely and some may even still bloom. We'll see.

It got cooler here last night too so I'm hoping my cannas didn't suffer. I really want to see them bloom. Since the labels on them faded too I'd like to know what survived.

Annie, great news for Shelbie. I know that was a relief and made your visit that much more enjoyable.

Everyone else, I hope life is being good to you and that you get to play in the dirt soon. Have fun!

Nancy

Dawn, your house looks finished from the road. I know you'll be happy when it is. I love the different looks of the bricks on the fireplace. As for a long pole to clean the rafters, lol, I have one of those webster brushes and still tape a broom to it with duct tape and have to jump to try to get to the top of the stairwell. We brought the ceiling down in the rest of the living room because I didn't want to have to deal with that. lol You're a lot younger than me so you shouldn't have any problems. You can always sit on your DH's shoulders and do it.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Well howdy -

That chair I'm in in the photo isn't the new one - it's still on order - that's just my regular manual chair. The new one is a lot more substantial. I have to either throw out or destroy my old one, just 3 years old! according to Medicare rules. Isn't that dumb? You need a backup while the other chair's in the shop, or one to fit in tight places (like airplanes) and another to go clambering through the woods in, etc.

Anyway.

Dawn first - Could your life be any fuller - new baby (old baby Brooklyn!), lovin' man, new house, hew backhoe, new Hostas - you'll look back on these years with such a smile!!

Brooklynn is so pretty, and that outfit is adorable! Wonderful photo - as good as any studio photo! You have a multi-talented family!

The house looks great from the drive! I liked that stage - when the house looked like a real house from a distance, so substantial suddenly - it's a thrill. I'm looking up at my ceiling cobwebs. Your living room will be airy and roomy, and cozy like a cabin at the same time.

Talon will be here so soon - I can't believe it's nearly time already.

And now Maleah is off to Kindergarten. Will you miss her during your days alone at home now, Canna? I remember when Sara went off to school - that big yellow bus and that tiny blond girl climbing up the big big steps. She loved it; I'll bet Maleah will too.

We had a 45 degree drop in 24 hours, then snow and sleet and more snow with FOG! Is that weird or what??? It looked eery. My new Hyacinths are just blooming, and the new daffs, and pulmonarias, too, and VA bluebells in bud - will it ruin everything or do these spring plants know better than we do? We covered the Bleeding Heart - they don't seem to recover if they're frozen down now. DH covered the Kirengeshoma with pine boughs a month ago to keep it from breaking dormancy too early - good thing!

Anita - Those are Wind Flowers, Anemones, we put in years ago. All but those deep blue ones died out gradually. Let me know if you want a start.

What a beautiful Iris!

Jo - I'm glad your therapy helps. It's surprising how sometimes you can change things a little and get a lot of relief. Keep getting better!

Nancy - Your flowers are so nice! This time of year I always want to move south, but then May comes...

Marea - Amazing Herb cab still stand! Wow, what an undertaking! Won't your neighbors be surprised at the instant garden these new folks pulled off!

Angie - I hope you can get a replacement on your quality daylily! I like Maryott's - they've been good to me.

You're right Anita - we need another Talon photo!!

What great boxes this time, everyone's! I'm going to lie low boxwise til my hand surgeries are healed. They keep changing the date. I think April 23 is it, for the right hand.

How are you doing, Shirley? Did you get all rested up and doctored up during winter? Nothing like Iris all in bloom at once to brighten up anyone!

I finished Marie's Easter dresses and mailed them off. I meant to tuck a little bunny in the pinafore pocket but couldn't find one small enough and safe both.

Mary - That Dracunculus is supposed to be hardy for you there, isn't it? Let me know how it does. I've been tempted to try one. What a rotten twist of weather for you, just as everything thought it was time to come up. Hope you're happier now.

Lovely views of your spring snow, Jean. Very pretty pictures. I like the juncoes.

Well that's all she wrote for now.

'Nite.

Barb

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Shirley, your blooms are gorgeous! What are the small bushes that look like creeping phlox, or is it phlox just planted higher? Whatever, it is beautiful. You're tulips are pretty too. I don't have any luck with them after the first year they don't bloom again. I do have 2 red ones that I dug up at our store and planted between 2 trees that are about 8" apart with barely any soil that bloom every year. You have to walk out there in the far back and look for them to even see them. Jerry claims them as his and really loves them. Is the tree a redbud? Mine was pretty but it's planted beneath some larger trees and doesn't bloom as well as yours and I have to move my camellia, it's trying to die on me. Did you ever notice that you never get finished?

Barb, I say you're right, it is foolish so what some people don't know, won't hurt them. Why they don't require you to bring them back so they can be checked out and reworked if needed for someone else is beyond me. I work with developmentally disabled people of whom most use wheelchairs and I know they are expensive! That's our tax dollars at work they're throwing away.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good Morning Everyone,
Yaayy! I was finally able to make it on the site. It is really hard for me to get on when there are so many pictures - but I REALLLLLLY loveeee the pictures when I do get on so please keep them coming.

Marea, A very happy belated birthday wish for you! I hope your day was as wonderful as you are! It is so exciting to see you post and update us all on what's going on in your "new life"!

Anita, sorry I wasn't able to post about the great box you sent. It was so nice to get a box of goodies in the mail. Anita sent me:

5 lilies 'Muscadet'
5 lilies 'Triumphator' (LOVE THESE!)
5 glads 'June'
5 glads 'Plum Tart'
5 glads 'Blue Bonnet'
Liquid soap and a shower puff
Cute little bunny and bird house garden decorations
Plastic eggs filled with an assortment of Starburst, Smarties, bubblegum, etc., and extras in the box - enough to fill a candy dish
Bag of jellybeans
A really nice easter card and poem
(Oh, I hope I'm not forgetting anything!)

Thank you so much Anita, You made my day! Now I wish the weather would cooperate so I can get those bulbs planted!

Canna, I have your box all packed up and ready to go but our temps have been in the upper 20's and lower 30's so I'm nervous about sending it out to you as there are some things that I don't want to freeze. It's supposed to warm up slightly this afternoon, so maybe I guess I will take a chance and mail it out late today and hope it wings it way out of NY quickly and into some more warmer temperatures. Feel bad that you will not receive it before Easter, but thought you'd rather get things still alive. Who was it that said you can have an "extended Easter"?. You should get it Monday.

Anita, I love that iris picture in Marea's birthday post. It just radiates warmth. What is it? I think I need to have it.

Dawn, Glad to hear that things are still going okay with you and that Talon is behaving himself. One of my kids was a premie - born 6 weeks early. He was such a peanut when he was born but at age 13 now he is my biggest of my three and probably healthiest. There was much worry for him in the beginning but everything turned out just fine, just as I know it will for you! You're doing GREAT taking it easy just like you're supposed to be doing! Bless your hardworking Jason's heart for taking such good care of you!
The house progress is looking great too! What is your projected actual move in date? Brooklyn is such a cutie! I cannot believe how fast she is growing!

Shirley, love your spring pictures! I believe the second picture of the tulips are maybe the 'Shirley' bulbs I sent you a couple of years ago? Yes? Is the last picture a Magnolia? Oh I want Spring now too.

Jean, I am SO SORRY for your snow! It is so pretty though! We have light ground covering here but nothing like the accumulation you got! Sure is cold though. Not sure what all I lost yet. I know all of my crocus are toast. Some of the daffs were just beginning to open so I hope they will be okay in bud as well as the hyacinth still in bud so hoping for the best. Have a hellebores that after several years growing, this was the first year that it really looked beautiful and full of blooms. Think that's a goner for this year too. I am so thankful that none of my hostas were up yet.

Better get a little housecleaning done. Finally a day off so lots to do as always.
Hugs,
MaryB

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

I just got my Easter package from Canna! What a great big box she sent. Too big to hang on the mailbox this time so Mr Mailman brought it up to the house!!!!
Here is what she sent-A pretty card and an Easter Poem by Helen Steiner Rice
2 honest to goodness Daylilies!!!!!! "Unseen Angels" and "Eyes A Blue" I can hardly wait to check those out!
Lily bulbs-"Elodie"
A real rose-"Promise" my first rose! Who knows?Maybe another new plant obsession? These will all go in pots to be added to my "pot ghetto" in my family room. Its way too cold outside for anything alive....including ME!
big plastic egg filled with Cadbury candies
hand nozzle/sprinkler for my hose...really anxious to use that!
Hummingbird feeder that attaches to the window
magnetic notepad
alphabet stickers
Gum
Thank you Canna for a great Easter surprise package!How did your daughter like kindergarten round-up? I imagine she is so excited!
Sounds like many others have had these extremely cold temps too. Misery loves company, I guess!

Shirley, your pictures are so pretty! Hurry Up Spring!

Jean, I also got me a "daylily in the box" like yours....I let it "escape"from that box and it is growing by leaps and bounds! Hope yours is too!Hopefully that will help us get through these cold days till our daylilies outdoors will grow!

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

I got my box from Shirley this morning.

Sorry I didn't post right away but had to run to the mother-in-laws to clean for Easter.

In my box I got:
An easter card, and an easter poem on a beautiful plaque
Plastic eggs containing candy, a gold $1 coin, a note saying that Daylilly Living Legacy wouldnt fit in the egg. For the garden surprise I got a birdfeeder and daylilly Egyptian Queen (from my wish list!)
Calla Lily Mandarin Rose, 2 Girosa Lily and 2 Dizzy Lilys
A bar of glycerin soap and a watering can for April Showers
Extra bubble gum, a Peace Rose, 2 bearded Iris Vibrations and Rootbeer and an apple orchard candle.
I hope I didn't forget anything! It was jammed packed with goodies and you made my day!!!!
Thanks so much!!!

I am pot ghettoing mine too, it's in the low 30s and blustery.

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Wow, MaryS, that got there fast! I'm glad you like everything. It has been awhile since I packed a box and had to think about how to do it! The hand nozzle is your 'shower' item, to shower your plants, LOL! I have one and I love it. I like all the different settings for watering the pot ghetto. I was so worried that the plants would freeze. It was nearly 80 when I sent the box! Now it is in the 40's for a high here.

MaryB, an 'extended Easter' is perfectly fine! I don't want anything to freeze.

Little miss diva, Maleah, had a ball going to 'school'. Coty's kindergarten teacher was there, so they got aquainted while I filled out the paperwork. I was pregnant with Maleah when Coty was in kindergarten. Maleah sat at a table and was writing her name and drawing pictures of lady bugs, butterflys, and flowers for the teacher. She is so excited to be going to school. She asked me if I was going to be ok by myself at home. I told her I would manage somehow :). When I took Coty to kindergarten, I was surprised how well I handled it, no tears. The tears came two weeks later when he told me that I did not have to walk him all the way to the classroom, 'cause he was a big boy now. I cried all the way home and most the morning. *Sniff* he didn't need his Mom any more!

Hi Dawn! Love seeing the house come along. Kudos to Jason for a job well done! I raise my Sammy to him!

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good Morning Everyone:)

Lilamy,
This group was started a few years ago, at the top it tells you how to get in the group.

Mary S,
I was very amazed my daffs out in my big bed I forgot about are still upright, the ones down town are all flat, for some reason my tulips are not as advanced as the daffs so I had no blooms/buds on them yet. Oh, yes my beds are awesome all right awesomely full of weeds:)

Mary B,
Glad you liked your box:) I have no clue what many of my Iris are, a few years ago DH & I went on vacation, at the time I had the plastic plant sticks marking my Iris, the dogs decided it would be a good time to rearrange my bed & snapped off almost all of my tags scattering them all over the bed, I could have killed them.

Jean,
Man, oh man, you got some good snow:( I got lucky & only got a trace, but I know we are not out of the woods yet. I think it is all of about 20 here right now, to cold to snow, but Mother Nature is spitting some at us anyway. My DH still cracks up over your name, When I have been playing in the dirt (when it was warm) & got all dirty DH said Hey PIG PEN, how's your friend DIRT PIG, HA, Ha, ha he thinks he is so funny:)

Barb,
I would love to try some:0) Thanks on the Iris, wish I knew the names still.

Shirley,
B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L, It is just amazing the difference from 1 zone to the other, sure your not an 8 or 9 :) Just look at your lush grass, mine has not even started growing here yet, not that I'm in any rush for that, as I have to baby-sit DH, so he don't blow the grass in my bed's. He thinks if I'm in the house I don't see him do it, he better think again, when I am in eye sight of him he will hold the flap down on the mower so it don't blow in the bed's, when I'm inside he just mows about his business, I have busted him enough you would think he would learn by now.

Today is DH's Birthday party so I have to go get all the food done & the house ready, Have a great day all,
:)Anita

Not sure if I posted this one from last year or not?
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE:)

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

OK, I need to vent LOUD!!!!!!
David thought what a great day to fix the toilet that has been leaking for OH, I forgot how long, simple job right?? Nope not when the valve is all corroded & he could not get it off without breaking it, OK, so now I have NO water to clean all the veggies with, No water to wash my hands, thank God for rubber gloves, had to melt ice cubes to make the Swedish meat balls, 3 hours from now I will have a house full & nothing done:(

Jo,
Mark this day on your calendar JULY 21, we are having a pig roast here, I am sure I will see you & DH?
Wonder what brilliant idea David will come up with the 21 to mess the day up........OH, man I'm a bit ticked right now..:(Anita

P. S. On the bright side I do have another bathroom, just NO WATER!!!!

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

MaryB-You are so observant...Yes the second picture is the Shirley tulips you sent me in a trade. I just love them and they photograph so well. Hope to start a thread today with just our pictures so for dial up folks it won't be such a nuisance.

Nancy-The low growing bushes are azaleas. Those are some that I have that grow low to the ground. They really put on a show in the Spring.

Lilarny-If you have any of your Honeycomb butterfly bushes rooted I would be interested in a trade. I had one but it died and I want another one or maybe two or three. Think about joining the group we would love to have you.

Annie-I got your swap box yesterday and will post all the goodies along with some pictures later. You made my day with that box.

Anita-Your luck sounds like mine...Eddie will pick the oddest times to fix or do something and then it turns into a mess. WE GOT SNOW LAST NIGHT.....just a dusting but I couldn't believe it...Good luck on the Birthday fun...tell David HAPPY BIRTHDAY....My DS bought us a lawn mower with a grass catcher. We have never had one of those and I just love it...No grass left on the lawn and none in the flower beds. Thanks for the iris picture...drool drool

RE: NEW: 9600---Traveling Daylilies

Good morning everyone!

What a wonderful surprise arrived in the mail and I couldn't wait to come show it off. : ) This group is filled with Angels for sure. Wait 'till you see what our dear Barb made for Talon.....

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It is so soft and the love that she put into making it shows. Can you see the two birds in the pattern? Absolutely gorgeous and so unique.
Barb, once again you have touched my heart and I will cherish this tiny sweater long after Talon outgrows it. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. I absolutely love it! And my DH thanks you too. Can't wait to show the rest of the family. BIG HUGS!

I have been sleeping for most of the day, otherwise i'd probably be checking in more. Seems like the more sleep I get, the less contractions I have. We are so close to the 35 week mark! I'm starting to feel like getting through two more weeks to 37 will be a piece of cake. My contrax. are still very much slowed down so keep your fingers crossed. I see the doc on Tuesday.
Thank you all for your sweet words about my DH. He is so concerned about the good health of the baby and wants to do all he can so that I can rest. That in combination with his never ending work schedule is wearing him out. He has lost some weight and is extremely tired. I begged him to stay home today, but he headed over to the new house at 9am. It's cold and snowy. : (

What wonderful Easter swap boxes you all are enjoying! Great job everyone.

Oh, and thank you all so much for the compliments on my beautiful neice. She really is precious. And such a good girl. She slept in her "big girl" bed (crib) for the first time on Wednesday night. I had to laugh at her Mom....Jenna slept on her floor! lol. I assume she'll be camping out in there for a while until she feels comfortable. Brooklyn had been sleeping in a bassinet right next to Jenna's side of the bed.

Hi Lisa! Great to see you posting. Spring really is wonderful, isn't it? A time when there is so much to look forward to. I, too, like to sit and just "breathe it all in".

Jean....oh...pooor Jean.....all that snow! But such beautiful pictures. : )
The rest isn't driving me too crazy. I am enjoying time with the birdies. They have been singing songs for me and doing alot of dancing. That keeps me totally amused. : )

Carol! Where are you moving to? I remember you mentioning a while back the thoughts of a *possible* move, but I must have missed anything else you said. Your DH is gonna' have to pack & stack all your plants like Herb did for Marea. I'm really glad the Pit Bull didn't get a hold of you. Actually, i'm glad you didn't get a hold of the Pit Bull. ; )

Shirley, how nice that Brittney was able to buy her own car! She must have been very proud.
My Mom has taken so many gazillions of pics of Brooklyn so far. It's really funny trying to get her to smile. Those photographers at the studio's must have a tough job.
Your pictures have me drooling all over the keyboard. Gorgeous!!! Your Azalea look sooooo pretty. I think that is what Nancy was inquiring about? The color and form really does resemble creeping phlox and that's actually what I thought it was at first glance. Thank you for sharing.

Nancy, thank you for the compliment on the mixed bricks on the fireplace. : ) That's not the finished product though. I'm afraid if it was, my DH would not be in business as a mason very long, LOL. That is actually just the "guts" of the fireplace and those brick are what you would call "fill brick". There isn't a need to make the inside of the fireplace look nice, so it's all about speed. : ) The stone we are searching for is what we are planning to face the fireplace with. But I am all about rustic looking things and it definately looks rustic right now. : )
Wonderful idea about sitting on Jason's shoulders, hee hee. That would be a hoot. I do have an extendable pole that I think is 12 ft. long. I think the ceiling height will be almost 20 feet, so I could probably rig something onto the pole while standing on a ladder. Or I could just leave the cobwebs. They will fit right in with my rustic decor. ; )

MaryB, that is very encouraging to hear the story about your son. Just wonderful! I've been doing alot of reading and have heard many happy endings from premature birth stories. Amazing how the advances in technology have helped such tiny babies survive to live full and healthy lives. I feel so much better after every day that we make it further and my thoughts are so much more positive at this point.
We don't have an actual move-in date set and it's anybody's guess. At this point i'm just hoping it's before Winter. I'd really love to be able to put our current home on the market this Summer, but we'll see.
Hope you didn't spend your whole day off cleaning and took some time for yourself. : )

Canna, great news about the little diva. I have the feeling she's gonna' be at the head of her class.
I'll tell Jason what you said about the Sammy.....i'm sure he'd be raising one right back at ya' if he had the strength left in his arm, lol.
He's been drinking red wine lately.....health purposes, you know. ; )
How is Doug? Hope his recovery process has gone well. Does he have any thoughts about the Steeler's new coach? We are optimistic at this point.

Hi Deni!

Melissa, so nice of you to clean for your MIL. And I know what you mean about the 2 hours of rest.....i'm sure that will be a thing of the past very soon. : )

Anita, I know....I need to take another picture. I've actually been wanting DH to take some black & white ones of my belly, just for fun. I'll see what I can do. : )
I hope your DH has a fun-filled, happy birthday. Enjoy yourselves!

Hi MaryS! Nice Easter box you got from Canna. I love those multi-spray pattern nozzles too. I have one on each hose and can't believe how handy they are.

Marea, what a precious little picture of that Viola. I seem to have more and more of those every year, popping up in the funniest of places. I can't bear to pull them out and always let them go. Mine even seem to do well in the Summer heat.

MamaG., we're gonna' have to send out the search party. HUGS!

Welp, i'm gonna' roll myself into the shower then back into bed for a little while. I am going to rest up today 'cause my Sister Jenna is coming over w/ Brooklyn for Easter tomorrow. She's bringing the "Happy Feet" DVD for us to watch. Yay!!

Thank you again Barb....that was soooooo very nice of you!

HUGS to ALL,
~Dawn (mamabirrd)

Anita, that story really gave me a giggle. Esp. the part about the other bathroom, lol. And the Swedish Meatballs made from melted ice cubes.....OH MY I feel your pain. Sure hope the rest of the day goes smoother. And what the heck is DH doing fixing the toilet on his BIRTHDAY?????
; )

Angie, Yay! See, it's really pretty easy. And Photobucket is lots cooler than it used to be. You can do all kinds of fun stuff with your pictures. Glad you got it all figured out. : ) Have fun shopping!

HUGS,

Dawn-Love the sweater Barb made, I see the birds, how neat.
That will definetely be a keepsake.

I received my Easter box from Annie and was so pleased:
She sent me:
An Easter card-It says Easter is a time of renewal.How true
Poem-Peter Cottontail-Oh how I remember this poem, it was my favortie in school, we had to memorize it one year.
Easter history, facts, customs and traditions-loved this
Plant Pal moisture meter-Never seen one of these, it is a frog and it sings when your plant needs water...How neat is that....I will have to let the plant get dry just to hear him sing.
5 eggs filled with-hersheys kisses, reeces peanut butter cups, and m&m's...Yum
Bearded Iris-Northwest Progress....Love this one
Rose-Skys the Limit---What a beautiful yellow rose, it is a climbing rose and I LOVE IT
Gift certificate for Van Bourgondien plants...What fun it will be picking out my favorites to order.
Annie thank you so much for a fantastic Easter box...I posted pictures on a picture thread...You really know how to pack a great box.

HAPPY HOLY EASTER TO OUR ANGELS!

Smiling as I look at the snow outside (again) on Easter Morning

All i can say is,'Thank God it is not February!" I'll take snow in April as long as it is not February. This is what March and April are here, a taste of warmth, with the Truth of Spring/Summer right behind.

I'm determined to enjoy the last snow of Spring. (I have been saying that for several days now.) LOL

Dianne, you are going to love the Hawaii Dahlia. It is not a dinnerplate, but such a lovely combination of colors and is a perfect size for a vase. And the Lily Triumphator are huge and breathtaking. Easy to propagate from scales so give it a try. Very nice box indeed!

Anita, This particular Dracunculus hardly smelled at all. I had one a couple years ago planted in the garden and didn't know it would smell like that ... I kept looking for the dead animal in the garden that I knew the cat must have killed. LOL
You are great to do the Life Link for your Mom. My Dad kept his cell phone on him at all times, but when he fell, he was in such pain and so disorientated that he literally forgot how to use it, so he laid there for 8 hours. Thank goodness he was on pain killers for his lung cancer that helped take the edge off the pain, otherwise I'm positive he would have gone into shock. He is coming home today, but it will still be a very slow recovery, he is still not the same man ... yet. Tell your mom this story and maybe she will realize it is NOT a waste of money. I sure wish we had done it.

Great boxes everyone is receiving.

Jean, nice snowy pictures... smile.

Shirley, I'm in love with your yard!

Dawn, that Barb is so creative, what a beautiful sweater.

Got to go, hope everyone has a great Easter,
Sharon

I want to thank Paul for the box I got from him, A package of 7 "innocence Passion Blend bulbs, Umbrella( I really need this, and it is going in the car tonight)5 eggs with mm's reeses pieces, and candy,garden gloves and a stuffed Easter Flower( so cute), A nice card with a poem in it, and a note saying that another box is coming with plants. THANK YOU PAUL!!!

Shirley, I'm glad you liked your box, but the rose bush looks like it really stressed. Let me know what it looks like in the next week, and if it has not perked up I will send another. I love your yard, so nice and neat... wish mine looked the same.

Dawn, I'm glad to see that Talon is still in his warm snug home. It Won't be long now. Shelby was born early too and weighed in at a whopping 4lbs 14 oz, it didn't take long for him to grow.

Looks like everyone is getting nice boxes, I'm just thrilled with mine, and I will post more later, I have to head out to work.

Marea, I want to thank you for the nice surprise box for my "Chris" A thank you card will get in the mail to you this coming week.(I will mail it myself this time).

Gotta Run,
LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie
