Yahoo flowergirl34; I got em dug & boxed is ready to go in Mon morning mail! You should get it Wed or Thurs. Conf # 9405903699300227097385
Sending 4 iris and several daylilies. I tried to write the name on the plant and also put a little stick wrapped with each one with the name, but the stick will fall out easily when you take them out of the box.

Don't worry Sue. Going to the beach this week and leaving DH home. He wouldn't know what to do with them if they came this week. I know he would try and that is a little scary, too. That's what happens when a farm girl marries a city boy. He has learned a few things over the last 38 years but you can only expect so much.


 o
RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Happy Monday!

Jayeanne, I WISH I had all those varieties. I'm putting some of them on my want list. Maybe someone out there on the gw had some...I hope :)

frankielynn, have a great time at the beach!

LOL! This farm girl also married a city boy...there is no way I would ever EVER trust him with a box of plants...the horror...THE HORROR

Col, super! I'll be on the lookout :) Can't wait!! It's just like Christmas!!

Off to weed my brother in laws house today. He bought a new house. Very cute! But, he is not a gardener, lol. The back all needs weeding. I knew something was amiss when I stopped there over the weekend and he was weeding the coral bells...PULLING them out and calling them weeds! Drastic steps needed to be taken, hahaha. So off the kiddos and I go today to see what we can rescue. :) Wish us luck!

Have a great day!!

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

No, don't know the name of it Sherri. Kiddos and I take all the annual seeds that we get from winter swapping and put them all into plastic dish container with a lid. Stir them up and they go "spread" them in 2 beds that I have for them. :) Who knows what will come up. Last year we had the most gorgeous bean runner vines that came right up the sunflowers. I couldn't have done that on purpose, lol. This year we have a plethora of sunflowers... all different sizes and colors. Also come cosmo's and a couple of other interesting things that haven't flowered yet. Can't wait till they do.

Very exciting news I forgot to share in my previous post! WE HAVE A PUMPKIN!! I can't believe it!! I have been trying for 3 years to grow pumpkins here. Our ground is less than optimal for them. This year vines are everywhere, flowers are everywhere and we already have 1 turning into a pumpkin! I AM SO EXCITED!! I have no idea what kind it is...I don't care lol! Crossing my fingers we'll have more :D

Talk to you later!

I received Vina's package saturday. I was out of town but my mother picked it up for me. Vina sent daylilies:
Firestorm, Fires Of Fuji, Prestor John, Bradley Bernard and Frans Hall. Also TB Iris Blazer, Dreams Of Gold, Tropical Butterfly and IB Iris Bumblebee Delite. Thank you Vina for the wonderful package and for doing such a good job hosting this swap!!!!

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Good morning!!

PHEW! I'm SO happy to hear from you Suzanne! I was beginning to think your neighbor received my box... it has happened, lol. I'm so glad you liked everything! Happy Planting :D

The kiddos and I finished their Uncles house. 3 hours and 2 VERY tired kids later and it looks nice. We even put down mulch. His neighbor said we should start a landscaping business: 2 Kids Landscaping, hahaha. When all was said and done, I had found a bunch of coral bells in amongst the mess. Some I brought home. Don't know what they are but they are very dark pink flowers and variegated leaves. The ones I already had are light green leafed and light pink. Received these from a lovely elderly lady who has since passed away, when I used to weed her flowerbeds.

My garden is just not looking good. Im so upset. oh well hopefully they come back better next year. I had a really good start of the season but the weather is just too hot and dry.
Does anyone have experience with the iris st patricks day, I saw it in a catalog and wanted to know if it really is that color of green? it does look greener in the catalog.

Good morning! Happy Thursday! So close to the weekend I can almost smell it!!

Cinnie, that's okay! It has been really hot and humid and dry for most of the country. We're in no hurry :) I haven't had any experience with the St. Patricks Iris, but, I do remember when one company had the Pride Of Ireland iris in their catalog quite a few years ago and it was colored a VERY lime green. They doctored the photo to make it look WAY greener than it actually was.

I absolutely LOVE green flowers! If you order it please let us know about how it flowers. I may need to order one myself, lol.

Yesterday, I rec'd my AWESOME box from Colcol!!

Daylily: Lavender Stardust

I know how we all loved named varieties of plants, but, this one I am especially proud of. Taylor and I grew this from seed that we rec'd in the Theme Garden Seed Swap 3 years ago. It was one of her first plants she ever grew. I was shocked by the color, it's so different.

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Good morning!!

Sheri, that is a GORGEOUS iris!! So dark!

WOW! Jayeanne!!! That is a definitely what I call a CHRISTMAS present! Holy Moly! I have to go look some of those up later, the names are awesome!

I had a little more umph yesterday than usual and decided to take on my nemesis in the front of the house... the blue rug juniper (ugh!) A long, long...really long time ago I planted this right next to our sidewalk coming up to the house. And every year I take the whacker to it because it grows everywhere! I has filled in a 5ft x 20ft area and still wants more! Nasty little weeds come up in between it and when you go to pull them out you get pricked in the hands, and forget the gloves idea it's so tight in between you can't get your hands WITH gloves on in there.

So yesterday, after much soul searching on the idea (mostly I was searching for the large clippers), I hacked that thing to pieces. 5/6 wheelbarrow loads later I can see the ground again!! Hallelujah! Not quite sure what I'm going to plant there? Right now I'm just happy that stuff isnt' there anymore.

You ever have a.... "What was I thinking moment?" Yesterday was mine. Sweating, covered in those flying bits of evergreen which are of course sticking to me all over I thought... WHY DID I EVER PLANT THIS! LOL!

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Back from the beach and got 2 new hostas, 2 new sedums and a new hens and chickens AND 4 big zip bags of beach rocks. Plants and rocks are the only souvenirs I want. Found a few shells and fossils to add to the collection that has been growing since childhood in old canning glass jars on top of the kitchen cabinets. I sure do hope those cabinets are screwed into 2 x 4's or they will be coming down with all the weight on them.

Okay Sue, I am home and not going anywhere for awhile except to work. School starts back in 2 weeks. Sigh, I love summers off but they go by so fast. I do kind of miss all my kids, a little...


 o
RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Morning!

Yes, Sheri that was a terrific workout for the shoulders and arms with those heavy clippers. Yesterday, I was a dynamo and weeded 3 beds, and cleaned out the pond...before it started POURING! It rained all the rest of the afternoon which put a halt on yard stuff. But, the whole family snoodled in and watched a movie together. That was nice. We haven't done that since last winter.

frankie, that sounds like a wonderful beach trip. Did you visit garden centers where you got your plants or were they liberated right from the beach?

Just throwing a question out to all my gardenweb friends... Does anyone have any experience with goats? As pets? I had one when I was younger and she was my joy... anyway, my daughter really, REALLY wants one and I am trying to accumulate as much info as I can about them. She would like a Myotonic (the fainting goats) or a Boer goat. Anyone familiar with these?

Iris: Bumblebee Delite

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

I went to nurseries in the area. We made a lot of u-turns. :c)

I have friends with Boer goats and they follow the kids and Mother around like dogs. Their Dad got them to breed and sell for meat but I am not sure how that is going to work out. They are very hardy and don't have to have help with birth.

My Mom had pygmy goats and never had health problems with them. They were so little and would climb up on her back whenever she bent over. They were like dogs, too. Following her around and talking to her if she was outside. They were escape artists and loved the foundation plants. The young ones could squeeze thru the littlest spaces in the gate. Girls are best. Boys can smell very strongly.

Anyone close to Sheri in BINGO??

Thank you frankie! Yes, my sweet girl has narrowed it down to a myotonic (fainting) goat, or a boer. Both are meat goats. We wouldn't be selling for meat, she wants to show. And, we have a few local shows around here for both. We went to one, but, the people at them always seem to have "the one you NEED" on the spot. And, when I was trying to ask questions they seemed more concerned about how much I was willing to pay. So I figured I'd better do a lot of research before spending any money. I did read about the smell from the males. I think we would either have a female or a wether ( a fixed male)...no bucks.

I grew up on a horse farm, and we had 1 goat as a pasture mate for one of our horses. She was also a pygmy. I loved her! She did come when you called her and stayed right with you, just like a dog. Even our farrier would trim her feet for us, so I am a complete novice when it comes to goat care.

I do, very much, like the idea of having a small paddock, and as my kids have started calling it, the baby barn, lol, in the yard. It brings back wonderful memories from my childhood that I would like to share with them.

We did go look at "baby barn's" yesterday. Had a riot! I am not used to anything so little being used as a barn. They are like doll houses. Windows, a little front porch, window boxes...so CUTE! We're going out today to another place and see what they have.

Vina sent you an email about the goats! Kathie

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Good morning!

Kathie, thank you so much for the email. I'm definitely going to have a goat proof fence. I believe we're going with a vinyl vertical picket, with a metal goat fence on the inside of it. 2 fences attached. Would be incredibly difficult to climb out. It's about 5 feet tall.

Went to look at more baby barns yesterday and hubby got so fed up he said we should just build one that will suit us. I think it will be better that way anyhow. I'll be able to get it set up the way I want. :) I'm thrilled!

It's going to take a year to get everything ready for our new arrival. Around here we have 2 seasons...working outside and winter (we're one of the snowiest places in the US). Our cold starts about October and lasts till April/May... so we'll see what we can get done in the meantime :)

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Alana-That was quick I figured you would receive it today. 2 days is good though. Daylily Spotted Fever has the cutest little blooms. I don't mind small blooms if they are doubles, puts me in the mind of roses. Otherwise the bigger daylily blooms the better I like them. As we said the doubles are on the top of our daylily list.

Well, still raining and 70% chance tomorrow. It might be Tuesday or Wednesday before I can get it together. Not complaining, we've been a little under normal this year until recently.


 o
RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Alana-You asked me about Jerry Pate Williams and I told you I had it but I have looked and looked and can't find it. If you still have extras I would like to get it again...thanks. I swear when you have help with the weed pulling you just never know...Grrrrrrrrrrrr (DH)

I like two words on the BINGO.

Vina-Your Irises are just gorgeous....I have finally decided to give up on bearded irises. Over the years I must have lost 300-400, so I say enough. I can grow them at our Church but for some reason they just die off in my beds. From bacterial soft rot, iris borers to too much rain I give up.
The LA's, Jap. and Sibs are OK so will have to enjoy those. I will say the dirt at Church they love...the tubers are the biggest I have ever seen.

Shirley

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Morning!

Alana, our leaves have started to turn already! My willows are starting to turn yellow and my burning bushes are starting to get the red tinge. I can't believe it! I haven't even started harvesting seeds yet!

Shirley, I've lost a few this year myself! Luckily, I would find one lowly little survivor nubbin to try to keep that specie alive. I've moved quite a few this year as well. We had so much rain and below freezing cold this spring...they just rotted. :(

I wish I could grow daylilies as well as you. I tell people all the time about all your daylilies. Mine start off okay, but, by the end I'm giving them a haircut so they don't get really, really gross. I think its the cooler weather up here that gets them. Southern daylilies are as big as leeks, mine are like pearl onions, lol.

Got a picture of monarch on my, of all things...butterfly bush :) WOOHOO


 o
RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Might I mention that is a male Monarch? Because this is such a good picture to see it. Look at the lighter color wing in the middle, there is an upside down mitten shape. Now follow the line leading off the top, can you see that bump, a quarter inch over?


 o
RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Vina-Yes I really don't have any complaints growing daylilies (thank goodness). I do so love the bearded and will just have to enjoy them in other places. I have moved some to a garden in town. At least others can enjoy them there. Last year I ordered some new intros from Sutton's Irises and they all died. I have even had DH dig sand out of the pond and added it to the soil and put in raised beds but they don't seem to do any better. We do get a lot of rain here in the mountains and that rots them. Keep those pictures coming and I can ooh and aah over yours. LOL

Mary E-That is great that you can tell the difference between a male and female Monarch.

Vina-That is a fantastic picture.

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

Hi, the female Monarchs do have the upside down mitten, but not the bumps. Plus, on the girls, their black lines on the lower wings are wider. For eight summers, in my prior garden, my teenager and I brought eggs in from our milkweed, raised them on the screened porch and released them when they emerged as butterflies. The most we released in one day was over twenty. Wonderful to have coffee and watch a chrysalis hatch at dawn.

Alana-Thank you so much for the wonderful box you sent. I was so thrilled to get them all planted I forgot to write down all the contents. Will take care of that tomorrow.

Thank you Vina for hosting this swap so we could all have new blooming plants in 2015. Love that Brokenheart Iris.

Congrats Sue......

Morning all!

Hope everyone had a terrific weekend!

We're just waiting for 1 more box and this swap will be wrapped up.

I know I am the worst at this, but, if everyone could remember to go the rate and review board and leave a review for your swapper that would be awesome!

Sue, I'm digging your bingo winner today :) Hopefully will be going out later...the latest tomorrow. Just want it to be dry enough. We've had rain everyday!!

RE: update: iris' ~hosta's~& daylilies oh my! swap year 3~thread

The box got here! It looked like they drop kicked it across the warehouse. It had a sticker that said they had destroyed the box before it got to Atlanta. (It had a big rip in it.) They had tried to tape it up. Nothing looked like it had fallen out thank goodness. The plants are healthy and beautiful and they had great ventilation on their trip. Everybody is planted in pots waiting for me to get the new bed ready. Thanks Sue--I have looked up all the colors of the blooms and I can't wait for flowers next year.

This was a great experience! Thanks for coordinating the trade.

I just wanted to remind everyone that the post office now includes $50 in insurance with priority mail so if anyone receives damaged goods or a trashed package if they send pic's to their partner they can file a claim.
