Holy hell, I'm tired. I stayed up till 5am for this. Gotta love being on the west coast when GW time is EST. Lol.

Sheri - 1. Bag 1 - named flower seeds-20 packs
And my second choice of:

Hi Ladies, I'm back to clear up some confusion on the times.
When I opened the thread to start posting, ALL of the posts said 8:00 am. NOW they are saying that two people posted at 7:59 am. I think I will blame this on my computer and, Sheri, I am so sorry if you didn't get your first picks. I'll send a small "apology" for the goof up.
I'm going to let the list stand as is, because to change it at this point would be horrendous!
Off to update!

Peggy, did you forget about us? Lots of good stuff left, so come on in!!

Shirley!

If whoever picks my magazines would rather have plants, I'll be happy to substitute a box of iris rhizomes. Just let me know. I didn't list them because I have no label on them and thought people would prefer knowing exactly what they are picking, but the irises are very pretty. Thought I would offer an option.

Erica, yes I received your email. Will respond soon :)

I finally got to go poking around in the woods today. Seems like it's been forever since doing so. Collected some seeds from plants I found a few months ago. Also found some wild growing turk's cap lilies! Wow, what a find! Marked it in the GPS and will have to remember to go back and look for seeds in a few weeks.

Boy Shirley, I was tired just reading all the posts. It went so fast you must be exhausted. It looks like everyone should be happy with their choices.

I'm heading down to Kettering tomorrow with my hubby to visit our daughter and future son in law. First time back since we moved them down there. We are going to have a picnic at a arboretum by them. Should be fun.

Good Morning! And thank you for all the kind words!

However!!! If we do this next year, there will definitely be some changes! Feeling frazzled on one of my free days is not something I do, so changes there will be! I learn my lessons!

I know Margo suggested rounds last year and others have had some ideas. There are several ways we could do rounds. And any ideas you all may have will be VERY welcome.

I think one of the problems, for me, was the number of players. There were twice as many this year! Which is a great thing but, maybe, next year we could have 2 Sales - one in the East and one in the West - I really felt awful about those of you who had to get up SO early, didn't one of you stay up all night? Dear Lord!

But that's all out ahead of us,
NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE FIRST GUESSING GAME!
Remember, any member of FOTESS can play

I've been trying to start a Memory Garden for my Mom, using her favorite flowers, Iris's. HOW MANY IRIS'S DID I ORDER FOR THIS GARDEN THIS YEAR? The number is between 5 and 20!

Okay, back outside to deal with that clump of Sneezeweed that's blocking the sidewalk!
Have a great day, Ladies!
Shirley!


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Shirley my guess is 15.

I need addy from Shirley BG and Heidi I would like to post tomorrow please.

Heide, Jayeanne, and Ruth have all been sent my addy.

Thanks for letting me play at short notice.

All, have a great day

Shirley, we had fun and that was the important part - although maybe I shouldn't speak for the west coast people. I am not devoted enough to be up at 5 a.m. even though I like FOTESS a lot!

As for iris, let me guess 12.
Everyone have a great day!

Jeanne

Jayeanne

Evening!
Well, the day spent in the gardens has left me with several questions to ponder this week, such as:
Can any kind of Gentian grow to be over 10' tall?, and,
Where are all the male Hummers?, and why isn't the Bronze Fennel making seeds the same way the Common Fennel does? Should keep my mind occupied all week!

And the Sneezeweed is mostly history. If I didn't kill it, it will be offered on the Plant forum sometime in September!

No one guessed the right number for the Iris's. If no one guesses tonight, you can all take another turn tomorrow!

Margo, how was your excursion to Kettering? I'm heading down there at the end of the month for 4-5 days. Nice little town, with lots of arboretums close, so I won't even ask which one you went to!

Sharon, just sent you an email, oh shoot, just checked the list above, and I don't send the geraniums to you, I send them to Ruth.

Ruth, I have your address and will mail out Tues or Wed if that is good for you?

Lord, Lord, Lord.

Pink, I'm starting to see trees turning color too. Thought it was kind of early but maybe not.

Jeanne and Katie, hope you both received my emails.

Off to find some dessert!
Shirley!

RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Shirley-I want to join the other ladies telling you what a great job you did with the yard sale swap. Thank you for a fun swap this month.

Alana-I checked Daylily Westbourne Granny's Bonnet and it is so full of seeds I can't believe it. I am so excited and can't wait to see what I get from the seedlings. It was a little pricy daylily when I bought it 2 years ago on the Lily Auction ($60.00). So here is my question do you want to wait until the seeds ripen and I can send it to you then with the seeds and you can see what seedlings you get or I can cut it back and send now.

Ruth and Sheri-I will mail out your plants this week. I have your address.

I will guess 6 irises.

Shirley

Just checking in one more time before bed and discovered, TA DA! We have a winner! Congrats, Shirley, 6 it is!

And I see I forgot to tell you all about the prizes for the games, cie la guerre!

In any event, Shirley, you and whoever else wins these games will choose your own prize from this list of fresh seeds from my gardens - 2 packs each win:

Orange, Yellow or Red Cosmic Cosmos;
Cosmic Cosmos Mix
Jacobs Ladder
Salvia - "Rose"
Baby's Breath
Wild/Canadian Columbine
a gold colored Columbine-long tail
a lemon yellow colored Columbine-long tail
a pink/white bonnet type Columbine
Orange Poppies
Cinnamon Basil
Salvia Nubicola from 2013
And if you would like to wait, I'll have some named marigolds, common Fennel and maybe the Bronze Fennel, and others, probably by the end of the month.
Let me know what you would like, Shirley and I'll get them out to you!

I'll post the new guessing game before I head for work in the morning!
Shirley!

Today's Guessing Game:

Of the 11 named Iris's I managed to save out of a huge box of Iris's Vina sent me several years back,
HOW MANY BLOOMED FOR ME THIS YEAR?
Hint: I'm not very good at growing Iris's!

I'll be back after dinner,
have a great day,

RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Good morning!

CONGRATULATIONS SHIRLEY!!

Katie, rec'd your email. :) Thanks!!

My guess for iris' blooming: 10 I'm just thrilled your growing them :D

And, I wanted to share my latest triumph! I finally got a pic of a monarch drinking on of all things...a butterfly bush, lol!

Have a great Monday!

RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

This is so much fun!
I'm not usually quite this ocd, but I'm going to get my daughter at Boot Camp Graduation this week so I mailed packages this morning! Yard Sale item, winner, tracking #. Jeanne, I didn't stick seeds in with plants. I didn't have much room and I didn't want to send you soggy seeds--not polite.

1. Echinacea Express - seeds - JEANNE 91149011898658126513
2. Sedum Select - plants - JEANNE 9114901189866581286520
3. Gift of Gaillardia - seeds - SHARON 9114 90118986 6581 2865 06

I love sunflowers, but mine have hit that gangly stage which I do not like. They are starting to droop, turn brown, get wind-whipped. I got my first Teddy Bear sunflower to grow this year and it only got 18" high. It's the strangest looking thing. The flower is horizontal with the ground like a bird bath.
So I'm off to Mizz-Uhr-Ahh soon! Do you all go through that Dear Hubby stage when you get ready to go somewhere? I may just duct tape him to the luggage rack! lol
Heidi


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Thanks for the letting me know you mailed, Heidi. I'll be watching for the package. Have a safe trip. I'm very excited to get those two picks - sound wonderful!

I'll guess 4 irises bloomed.

Have a good day everyone!
Jeanne

Erica, sent you an email!

Yesterday, DH and I had the botanical find of the year! While out on the national forest, he spotted an unusual looking orange flower. It was an orange fringed orchid! I almost fell out when I walked up to it. Not common!! Found 3 specimens.


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Shirley - I will guess 0 Iris bloomed for you this year.

Katie - WOW! I hope you got a few pics of your specimens??

Ladies - your packages were mailed today =)

2. Daylily - Land of Cotton - JEANNE
3. "Lionheart" Tango Lily - SHARON

Jayeanne


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

7 - that's my iris guess. I'm not an iris grower myself. I mean, I can put them in the ground and pray for them, but that's it. It's all up to them after that. I did have one beautiful iris this year. I received lots of compliments and a guy stopped by to say he'd like one, he'd trade me for another, and he knew my dad. Then he drove away in his bronze pickup. I'm still trying to figure out who he was! The Mystery Iris Man! (Might be the next episode of Law and Order!) Heidi

It poured rain here all day, and still is, can't believe how much has come down!

Great shot, Vina! Aren't they beautiful?

Safe journey, Heidi, please let your DH ride inside the car!

Fantastic find, Katie, and I'm joining Pink in hoping for pics!

And we have a winner for Game #2!
Jeanne's guess of 4 was the correct one; they were Ola Kala, Alpine Storm, President Pilkington and Kochii. Hopefully, the rest will catch up next year!

Jeanne, here is the list of seeds to choose from, 2 packs:
Orange, Yellow or Red Cosmic Cosmos;
Cosmic Cosmos Mix
Jacobs Ladder
Salvia - "Rose"
Baby's Breath
Wild/Canadian Columbine
a gold colored Columbine-long tail
a lemon yellow colored Columbine-long tail
a pink/white bonnet type Columbine
Orange Poppies
Cinnamon Basil
Salvia Nubicola from 2013
And if you would like to wait, I'll have some named marigolds, common Fennel and maybe the Bronze Fennel and others, probably by the end of the month.

I'll post the new guessing game before I head for work in the morning!

Have a nice evening,

Ok, if y'all want pics, here are pics! Not only did DH spot the orchids, he spotted the Carolina lilies the day before. We went back to the lilies so I could take some photos, and that's when we spotted the orchids! Ladies, realize that in the plant world, this is THE kind of thing I live for! My DH gets so tickled at me when these kinds of things happen. LOL

Carolina lilies

Orange fringed orchid!

Katie!! WOW!! Thanks for sharing these! Now, you have to know which pic caught my eye! But the Orchids are beautiful! They must be natives, right? How lucky you are to have seen them! And what kind of swallowtail is that? A Spicebush? Wishing you lots more of these "happenings!"

Shirley, will get the seeds out soon. Here's a pic of the gold columbine, the lemon yellow is more, well, lemony, slightly bigger, with longer tails.
Shirley!

The lilies are very showy and beautiful. They are not common either. I was thrilled to find the Spicebush swallowtail on one of them. The Carolina lily (Lilium michauxii) is like the smaller cousin of the Turk's cap lily. It only gets about 1 to 2 ft tall.

The orange fringed orchid was such a spectacular find, tho. It is becoming exceedingly rare. It is now thought to be extirpated (extinct) in Canada. Many of the eastern states list it as threatened or endangered. Mississippi is one of those dumb states that refuses to list any plants that are T&E species unless they are federally listed, unfortunately.

Nice columbine photo, Shirley! Are the hummers visiting your red ones?

Good Morning!

Thunder storms and LOTS of rain here, this morning-Good Grief!

My backyard is mostly cement, with a crack running the whole way across, neatly dividing it in two. Over the years, I've had some pretty plants grow in that crack, by accident, including violets, borage and a really beautiful yellow cosmic cosmos!
This year, there were verbena hastata and marigolds. Today's Guessing Game question:
WHAT HERB GREW IN THAT CRACK THIS YEAR?

Shirley/BG, could you please email me your address? Thanks!

Sure hope it quits raining before I have to go to work, I left the umbrella at work yesterday, DUH!
See ya after dinner,
Shirley!

Happy to see that I won, but sorry not more of the irises bloomed for you, Shirley.
I'll pick these two packs of seeds for my prize:

Salvia - "Rose"
Pink/white bonnet type Columbine

Thanks so much!

We got hit with lots of rain Saturday night. I think it decided to fall all at once in SC. We got something like 3 1/2" in just a few hours. Our barn sits in kind of a low place and my husband has been digging trenches down there to try to get the water out of the stalls, etc. We keep our hay elevated otherwise it would have been even worse.

I have Alana's items packed for mailing. Hoping to get the the other two ready today so all can be mailed tomorrow. Everyone have a wonderful day!

ShirleyBG,
Please send me your addy. I will be in town again on Wed. You see, going to town is a 40 mile trip. Not something I do often. But this week I have doctor's appointments.
Heide, Your plants went out yesterday and TC is:
9114901189866676848657 due to arrive on 8/14/14

Good Morning, Everyone ! It has rained all last evening and night but not like Shirley got. My daughter also lives just north of her in Trenton and she has 5" of rain in her back yard at 7:00 pm last night. The rain covering the whole back yard. She said she now has the next Great Lake.

I guess parsley.
The summer here started off cold. Everything went in the ground late. This week it's been low 80s. Nights getting down in the 60s, few high 50s. We've had a summer of the most beautiful 3-dimenstional puffy clouds. Feels like you can reach out and touch them, blow them, swipe them. We've had more rain, too. This weekend it was in little patches. We are so happy. Well, there are some farmers who think it's too muddy, but farmers don't count. They're never happy! ha After several rough, hot, dry summers this one is wonderful!

Rain, rain and more rain here today! Sharon, I think your daughter got hit harder than we did. Heard lots of not so good stories about your daughter's area today at work. Hope she is okay!

No winner in today's guessing game, will check back before I head for bed. It's a very common herb, Ladies!

I'll post an update on who sent to who, hopefully tomorrow!

My flowers look drowned!

Hope you get some rain soon, Erica!

Katie, thanks for the info, didn't see your earlier post, and no, I've never seen a Hummer near any of the Columbine.

Everyone can take another turn at guessing
WHAT HERB GREW IN THE CRACK IN THE CEMENT?

Have a great day, All,

 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

I'll guess thyme this time! LOL

Erica and Alana, I have your packages ready to go and will mail them later today. Peggy, I dug your irises yesterday and they are very wet, so I am letting them get some air before boxing them up. If they're looking okay after lunch I will box them up, too, and add some shredded paper to the packing. I don't want to put any plastic around any of it because it's just too wet. I think they are Immortality because the tag stuck in the soil read "white" and I believe those are the only white Irises that I have.

Everyone have a good day!

Not applemint nor borage, altho the borage does grow right next to the crack, in a pot. Surprising that it has never sprouted there!

Marijuana isn't an herb, is it? I know it has medicinal uses.

Shirley/BG, could you send me your address? Thanks!

Sad about Robin Williams. One of my favorite lines from ANY movie, " it was a drive by fruiting" That movie was SO funny.

And Lauren Bacall? She wasn't dead, before now? All these years, who knew? Totally class lady, but her movies made me sad.

Katie, something tells me you never got my email with pics of the plants you sent me? I think they are hexed, Katie!

Off to finish my book,

Shirley, did the herb Feverfew grow in the crack?

I thought Cannibas was considered an herb....maybe not! One of these days the gardener in me is going to try growing a few plants....Of course, I will grow it outside in the yard or canyon behind me and probably get busted...I have nothing to hide....LOL!

Of to the Del Mar race track to bet on some ponies to day....always a good time!

Happy Thursday!

Well, it's gone from cloudy and rainy to sunny and COLD!!

And I've read where the governor of our dear state has declared a state of emergency for the area directly north of me-saw some pics of the flooding, those people are really going to need some assistance!

Well, no one guessed the right answer for the last guessing game, which was Chamomile! I'm going to put the games on hold until Sunday, have lots of "busyness" ahead of me for the next few days. Look for more games on Sunday!

Hey Annie! At some point, I'm going to google "cannabis", now I really want to know if it's an herb!!

Katie, the magazines went out tonight after work.
Jeanne and Shirley, so did your prize seeds!

And, Erica, got the package of medicinal herbs today! Very clever packaging! There were a few that I've never planted, so am looking forward to that! Thank you!!

Happy Saturday!
Had a great time at State Park today, sunny and VERY windy. Saw loads of Egrets, Swans, GB Herons, the Osprey and an Eagle. I'm 90% sure the pic is of a Least Sandpiper, a female or immature. I know it isn't a Dunlin or a Sanderling! These little sandpipers aren't very common around here, glad to get the shot!

The mailman brought me a little package today with a Black forest Calla Lily inside.
Shirley/BG, thank you for sharing this.
Can't wait to see stems of it in one of my vases.

I will be mailing all 3 of mine on Monday.
I had to get some much needed yard work done this week while our temps were below normal.

I will be sending Sharon Indy Teddy Bear daylily instead of the double white brugmansia.

I received a wonderful package of seeds on Thursday from Erica! Sorry I am late in posting this update but I have been running around like a chicken with no head! And btw, Erica, the little seed packet taped to the outside survived the trip thru the mail. Amazing!!

I will be sending packages out to Vina and Jayeanne on Monday! Waiting for the heat to subside a little more before mailing out the seedlings to Peggy.

I forgot to say Hi and Welcome to our new member, Promise! Glad to see you join us!!

Well, Erica and I have solved the mystery of the package. Hahaha. Seems like the USPS was rough on the bubble envelope and busted it open at the seams by the stamps. A couple of random staples later, and a package of seeds taped to the outside.... which survived the rest of the trip, amazingly! Here's a photo for everyone to chuckle at. I can't imagine why the PO didn't just tuck those seeds back inside and then use tape to seal it back up. They also didn't bother to cancel the stamps. Overall, it was a WIN! LoL!


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Katie,

Now that the initial trauma of what the USPS did to my package is over, I have to say that the stamp situation is super hilarious! You gotta love those mailers that get to your place uncancelled. Ironically, besides those two 21cent stamps, which I added, the rest were sent to me, also uncancelled (although I probably shouldn't be saying that)! Anyhow, I do have replacement seeds for the ones that were lost. They will be in the mail on Mon.


 o
RE: update: 2nd annual fotess yard sale! part 2

Hi Everyone!
I think angels were watching over that package! What a great story. If seeds could talk...we'd hear the REST of the story!
My daughter graduated from boot camp at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. She's standing with her younger (and taller) little sister! It was about a 13-hour drive one way. My husband left the GPS in the garage, missed his turn in Kansas and we almost got all the way to Oklahoma before he figured out he better turn east. The car limped home the last 30 miles and it's toast (the second car this month to die). I made the family take everything to the Laundromat BEFORE we went home because my daughter had lice at Basic Training. Now I have 7 plastic bags of clean laundry and a clothesline full of what was clean, but not yet dry. So of course I'm on the computer. Makes perfect sense to me! I'm exhausted and an emotional mess, but everything is good.
My little USPS only delivered Saturday's mail, not the held mail. Maybe I'll get that on Monday.

Katie, sent you an email about the plants!

Ruth, yours are ready to go as soon as I hear from Katie; only want to make one trip to the PO!

And I wanted to share this pic - I was sitting outside yesterday recovering from a 4-5 mile hike, and this Giant Swallowtail came flying in, hung around, nectaring, for quite a while. I was pleased!

I'll do an update tomorrow,
Have a great week,

Well, off to work, here in a bit. Short hours today, with long days the rest of the week. Cloudy here, cool, and that's okay!
