Just starting a new thread to see if I know what I'm doing when it's my time for hosting... May 2007. Does anyone have any frog graphics or photos they can share with me. Always looking and I'm working on setting up a website for myself. Loads of research getting done on photos or graphics so any ideas are welcome and greatly appreciated. I love flower/plant pics with frogs in them as a bonus, especially if it's your own personal collection photo you've taken. Some of them are just to cute.
Peace in playin with nature,
Char

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

well done char I guess my instruction made since
or you worked it out your way :)))
I told ya ease as pie :)) wish I had froggies to share but I don't get into many of those grapic my putor can't take the up-loads so I try to keep to just my garden photos , I have a iris that has many many buds on it & it is really turning cold I do hope that ,
that it will open this week so I can share with you all .
it is called juicy fruit .
I would like to share this with you all if at any time I don't post you will know the reason :(((
I bought a a-corn squash from our local farm market
YESTERDAY brought it home washed it cut it in 1/2
cleaned it out washed it again.
put it in my fry pan with a cover with little water
just to steam it oh I put butter ,salt & peper on it.

anyway when it was done I took it out of the pan
peeled it & cut in chunks for our supper I popped a chunk in my mouth & WOW I thought I had poured bleach
or bath clearner in my mouth NO JOKE LADIES This
was bad I have drank 2 12oz of milk to get the
taste out of my mouth this was nasty even my step
mother tasted & excuse me but spit it back out.

I took it to the health department in our town they say they have no control of the farmmers market & no way of testing it .
if I want it tested I have to pay for it . & take it to a lab . why do we have a health department in our community if they cannot help us .
sorry but I'm very up-set over this for I still have this bad taste in my month so in 3-4 days if my kidneys start shutting down you will know why .

NOT that that is going to happen :)) but it is
upsetting .
they say there has to be an epademic ?? spelling bad
before they can do any testing .

got to go get besy have a great day
hugs to all

and here's a pic

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
just finished blooming last week.

i still have one more daylily that has about 10 buds on it, it's one of my favorite no-id's, school bus yellow and grows right near an indian giver (purple daylily). If it opens this weekend I'll get a pic and post

Susie, hope you get over that rancid veggie. I wonder what was wrong with it, you said it looked right, right?

Night guys

MAUREEN Nice pictures :)))

I still have this nasty taste from that squash &
the lady I bought it from wanted to taste the squash so I took it to her tonight one bite she had to discard it & found it was very nasty also & had to go try to brush it out of her mouth she really feels bad & is going
to talk to the farmers she got them from . she seem to think it tasted like chicken penicilian ????
the lady says she has stop selling the squash .
I still have buds on a few of my daylilies & I have a Iris with bud & here comes the cold :(((
I covered them tonight so we will see if that helps .

well long day here so going to go read a book :))

Susie-Gosh that's scary about the squash. If you can't buy and eat fresh vegetables what is safe to eat? Glad you spit it out and did not swallow any. The spinach thing is bad enough.

Sassy-Love the frogs.

Maureen-Nice daylily. Love the purples.

Maureen, what a beautiful daylily you have. You are so lucky to still have a few blooming. Mums around here are really going strong. For some reason, though, a bunch of mine are really late. Why would that be? Anybody know? I did not pinch them back at all this year either.

Susie, Yuck!!! on the squash. Let us know if you find out what was wrong with it. Just what you need, too, what with all your going's on. Try sucking on peppermints?

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Susie, hope the taste is gone, I grew my own this year and had one yesterday baked with honey and a sausage patty in it it was delish. glad I ate it before I read your post. didn't know you could get a bad tasting squash. don't get sick, gonna cook up some dead rat stew at my new condemmed home. hugs to all carol


 o
RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Wow ladies thanks for the pics and Halloween related sigs they are great. EEEEWWWWW about the squash Susie I hope you are alright. In this day and age that can be a really scary thing to have happen to you and not know why or what was on or in it. I had an event that scared me to death a few years back. It had to do with my daughter Amber when she was about 5 years old so I guess about 10 years ago(little more than a few I guess). Anyway we stopped into a Holiday gas station for her to use the restroom and when she went to wash her hands she put the soap on and her hands started to feel like they were burning. I was so scared and after alot of plain water rinsing it got better but talk about scared. I still don't know what it was in the soap that was added but I wouldn't let my kids use public restroom soap without me using first to make sure it was OK. I can't imagine when you have tasted something like that the thought is even more scary for even a touch on the tongue puts whatever it was entry into the body. I suggest you talk to your doctor about this as you said you can still taste it. Better to be safe than sorry. Be careful and stay safe all of you, As best you can anyway.
Peace
Char

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

sue, do you think maybe your pan that you cooked in had cleaning fluid or bleach in it? that's very strange, i never heard anything like it. we have a resident produce expert among us...remy, what do you make of sue's squash dilemma? my mother used to keep liquid starch in the frig and once one of my sisters drank it thinking it was water. we all knew what was in that jug - don't even ask why she didn't pay attention to it. and once my dad reached into the bottom cabinet to get the vinegar to dress the salad and instead pulled out the vanilla. oh my God was he ever mad at whoever didn't line the things back up the right way, but we had such a laugh. i sure hope you find out what was wrong with your squash. BIG REASON I GROW MY OWN STUFF!!!!

my mums are looking gorgeous. i moved a massive one that's out back and put it in one of those barrels...hope i don't kill it. i was shocked to see a toad lily blooming, it didn't do anything for me in the spot it's been for the last year or so and i guess it really likes its new home.

carol, what are you doing, practicing to go on survivor learning this new recipe? don't forget to add some dead bugs, gives the stew a nice kick. and by the way, what happened to your trade page?

be well, happy blooms

Susie's squash probably got a spill of some chemical on it. I have opened boxes before and had odd chemical smells. It hasn't happened often, but it has happened.
I think someone out in the field has an oops with fertilizer or pesticide and doesn't worry about it when they should be telling their boss.
Oh I've had crates that smelled like cat spray too! Yuk!

Lol Carol! you write the funniest things.

Where do these cartoon pictures come from? How do you save them and then post them? Is there something special you need to do for the moving ones? I sound like a computer idiot don't I? Well, I am one, lol.

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

my mums are really late here too for some reason, 2 have already bloomed, but I just now have blooms on my absolute favorite large double purple mums, and my other 3 mums are just now gathering up steam to bloom, do they bloom sooner the cooler it gets? need to get more info on them, I just plant them and forget about them, never pinch them or anything like that...
love the graphics, I am sooo computer illeterate I just get to admire others work, funny my mother is a graphic artist, why couldn't I have inherited some of her genes?

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

remy, find a graphic you like and then save it to a picture saving account like photobucket. then when you have it there, you copy the tag line and post it into your message. (condensed version, i'm sure someone else can give you the long involved instructions). it's real easy too.

here's my pic, carol did it for me a zillion years ago

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Thanks sassyd for the frog stuff and look forward to more if you got any keepem comin.

Susie thats a great idea to get them comfortable with the outdoor environment. How long do you usually keep the branch in for them to get the hang of things? It looks like you've got quite the set up. I just love it. My hubby at one time wanted one of those huge blue birds(can't remember the name anymore) but they are like 1-2 foot tall and look simular to a parrot as some of them can talk. We used to go to the pet store weekly just so he could visit with the birds. That was in BC time (before children) almost 16 plus years ago already. They probably don't let you handle the birds like that anymore the way things have changed over the years.
Maryellen I love the fanfare gaillardia, does it get to be a fairly good sized plant once established and the mums. What beauts. The purple boa really brings out the color of the rat and you look just MARVELOUS in Carols hat she made for ya. What a treat to see both Shirley and you getting good use out of Carols hats she made for the both of ya.
Peace
Char
Roses love'em.
Remy I think the Montrose Anemone isn't gonna survive. Not much green left even with all the special treatment I've been giving it. Time shall tell I guess when it is suppose to come up next year. When do they usually start to pop out of the ground in the spring? Any idea?


 o
RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

remy
yes they are adorable but also very spoild one is always on my sholder no matter what I'm doing around the house , I try to get them to be spooked free when they go to their new homes . they know the sound of vaccum , washer & dryer , mixer, tv , the cats ,

mary ellen : love the plants country air is the best right ??? sure agrees with you lovely lady .

char : this is just a precausion so if ever the birds get out side after they go to the new home . & it has happened even here so I train them to or should say teach them how to fly down .
once they are out up in a tree for the first time it is scary to them being so high up , so when you train them early you can get them back to you .
very important is to have their wings clips some can still fly but not fly high :)

well time to go so have a great day all .

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Mellen-Loved seeing a picture of you. Yes country air is great you look so young and attractive. I love the purple hyacinth bean vine, mine did not do good this year. It must not have liked where I planted it. Great pictures.

Thanks to you all for the nice compliments. I live outside most of the time, maybe some day I will get everything the way I want it.

Susie-Love the rose and your BIRDS...Oh my they are beautiful. I don't know how you part with them. I would want to keep them all. Post that picture of iris juicy fruit when it blooms.

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

sassy, i just love that diaper. what a neat idea.

as always maryellen, you look lovely. where's the dog in this picture? your flowers are beautiful. i never grew hyacinth bean, had some seeds, but recently gave them away. just love that gaillardia, never grew that one either. going to have to check my seed stash and see if i have them. it is an interesting looking flower...is it an annual? and what about that blue fence-like thing, is that a pen for cows or is that where you get locked up when you're bad? lol

sue, what color does your juicy fruit bloom? when i googled it, i got three different pix. great bird set up. what are their names or do you wait and let the customers name them?

you look lovely, shirley. nice property too. just love the deck. how much land did you say you have?

maureen, what's the name of that purple daylily?

i was digging up some stuff today and i can't believe how heavily i mulched. i must admit though, everything is looking in tip top shape and i am ahead of time for winterizing the garden. the only thing i have left is to lay straw in the veggie garden and clean up and re-pot the house plants and bring them in. that's a chore that should take a few days at best.

my morning glories are going strong. i am amazed at the changes each day - some days they are a deep purple, others a vibrant blue and today there was a light maroon.

so sad, earlier in the day a crazed gunman took a one room amish school house (26 students) hostage, killing 4 and critically injuring 8 or so more. the gunman is reported dead. the news report indicates he was heavily armed and acting out on a 20 year vendetta. it's so terrible for these things to happen anywhere, but the amish community is such a tranquil place. my heart and prayers go out to all those affected. life is so uncertain ~~ so short.

be well, happy blooms

If it were me I would just cut them and bring them in. Iris at the florist are always closed when you get them. I just cut a bunch of roses for the same reason.


 o
RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

i second julie's thought. i would bring them in as well.

remy, congrats on your graphic. just seeing it now. another time when we were posting at the same time :)

i can't believe how nasty our weather has been and what did i find today? fragrant treasure daylily blooming like mad. i just love those little surprises.

be well,
maryanne


 o
RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

The iris that are showing a lot of color in your first photo are decent candidates for opening in a vase indoors. That's some interesting branching on the golden one. The other probably should stay outside until more color is showing, which means covering and uncovering. FYI, the irises from the florist are not, in my experience, bearded, but rather sibs. Lucky you to have some beardeds reblooming. Who are they?

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

juicy fruit is the top almost open then the other is
Frances Iva :)) & they did not bloom in the spring :(
& loaded with buds also the white one is still blooming its been blooming & full flowers for the last 2 weeks :)

one lady came to buy a few daylilies & say the buds &
the white iris still in bloom & said it is very rare for this time of the year :)) I have to agree :))

well ladies thanks for the advice & I will leave the one out till tuesday & see if there is a change for news is calling for snow this next week :((
so I will for sure try bringing it in :))) before the snow :(

have a great week & thank you

 o
RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Susie-I agree with the others. Cut and take in the one that is almost open. Leave the other as long as possible outside. I have got several that is blooming now. They usually bloom in Sept. because I always put them in our local Fair. They sure are late this year. I hope frost does not get them.

Beautiful flowers!! I'm so envious (sp?) I have absolutely begged my dh to get me in my house by Christmas, (he's building it, lol) so i'm not planting anything here. Actually I'm moving everything I can over there, so far they're looking good, also planted the ones Susie sent me over there. Don't worry Susie, I'm keeping them watered but got a good rain Sat. and that really helped. They much prefer that natural stuff! lol

Later girls!

With Carol you can never tell what she is thinking or planning. I say, "Watch out!" ;P

Beth, beautiful pics. You have such a knack for getting the right angles and shadows. Your trees have barely started turning? Most of ours are in their last glory. A FREEZE warning is on for tonight. A few more plants that I must get dug after school today. Plus I will be covering my mums.

Ours didn't stick, but it was beautiful watching the big flakes blwo around and fall. DH redid our entry to turn it into a foyer this year and completely incased it in windows. I have my wicker furniture in there. You can see the courtyard and our little pond. It's the perfect place to sit and have a cup of cocoa or tea and watch it snow. I'm sure thats where I'll be doing most of my crocheting in there this winter.
Again, thank you for sharing!

Sassy, Loving the froggies!

Mary Ellen - Could Precious be anymore "precious"! How adorable. Your mums look fantastic. Want to share next season? I have pink, yellow, red with yellow center, and burgundy that are big enough to split!

Susie-Love the pictures of your snow but I agree with Beth I'm not ready for it yet. We got rain yesterday also.

Love the frogs.......

Sassy #1 bf rule carol is innocent, if there is a conspiracy it is probably Mellen, earthly, Beth, angel or susie never me. I am just a sweetie. I need mums, I only have a white one and a yellow button one. I love all the pictures even the frogs, I am not really a reptile person. hugs ladies

Carol-Yes you are a sweetie.

Susie, Even though I don't want snow quite yet, those are beautiful pictures that you posted. I always love the first few snowfalls.

Yes, Carol, you are a sweetie who does not know what the word innocent means!!! You listed a group of us who might be "conspiracy" people, and you put me first?!? What a blow to my ego.(Ha, it rhymes.) I/we would neeeever conspire against you. Oh no, huh uh! Remember who has your name in another monthly swap! LOL

Tina, I would gladly trade some mums with you. This year most of the yellows came back of mine. Last year it was mostly burgundies. If I can find it, I should post the pic of the huge and very pretty burgundy one I had last year. This year it is very small. I had some that were called "Early Mum" that never did fully bloom. Figure that one out! They look like they would be lavender. Next year I will be looking for/planting more of a variety of colors than what I have now and probably in a different place. I'm just not happy with what I have in front of the house/porch. Back to the drawing board there. Tina, tell Rick that Vince C. cancer/leukemia is GONE after one round of chemo. WooHoo!!!

Well, ladies, now that I have Carol shakin' in her booties, I will say ta ta for tonight. I continue to be so thankful that we have such a wonderful group here. Mary Ellen/Mellen

Hey Nancy/cedarnest, what are you doing with that hibiscus to get it to bloom so fast, feeding it coffee or coke? Good job girl!

Susie, thanks so much for the pictures, I miss the colors you all get up north in fall and snow.

I don't miss the cold though. My rheumatiz is going crazy with lows of only 40's here, what a wimp!

Tina your foyer sounds like a great place to snuggle in and watch nature and crochet, I like to get all my "stuff"(beverage, snack,garden mags,small dog Otis,etc.lol) around me and settle in near a window...foyer is on my wish list./Susan /giverny4me

well I just wanted to share my bloom before it faded .
the other Iris (FRANCE IVA ) Has not bloomed yet
but if it does I will be sure to show you.

as for the white iris even after all the snow it still has buds & blooms on it today :))

Has anyone any idea as to what I can use on my water tank there to clean it & not be toxic to plant or animal.

good night all

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

Susie, those iris are so beautiful! Does the flower smell good too? With a name like juicy fruite... it just seems like it should smell good too.
Reblooming iris are definately going on my list for next year.

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends indoor plants

My new dog, Gracie haa arrived. She is a real sweetie and very loving but not used to being loose inside. She gets so excited at having freedom to roam she has not yet figured out how to settle down.. She does great outside on a leash and is very good about being in her kenel. We are working on the other stuff.
What does this have to do with plants? Well, Gracie has this whip of a tail and when it wags, it prunes the houseplants somewhat like a doggie powered weed wacker.
Here is a before Gracie shot of some of my plants.

Fortunately she does not seem interested in eating them I just need to remember to keep her tail going away from the plant stands because, for sure, it's going to be going full speed.

RE: NEW: Our Bloomin Friends / photo's or graphics

yes we want to meet gracie , those tails can be very wicked , I still carry the memory of my aunt's dog A Great dane & I was 6 yrs old & he knocked me down with his tail.
everyone laughed about it but me :( his tail hurt worse then hitting the floor .

I wish I had your green thumb for house plants.
I have a north picture window but still not much survives .
well have a great evening

Susie,
Nice snow pics! See, your snow looks light and fluffy, not like the evil snow I had! You did get the iris to bloom! I agree with Carol, your critters sure look interested in those fish, lol.

Beth,
I just love the waterlily colchicum. Mine looked great until the snow. And where's the pic of Gracie?

Mellen,
Nice pics. That mushroom is amazing. I've never seen one like that!

Thanks sassy for the frog pics. I just love them. I found a new site lately for picture storage and I think I may set up an account with them as you can make your own web address off of their site as well or so I've heard. flickr.com is the site ever hear of it. If anyone is really into taking pictures, like I am with my digital camera this would be a site for you to explore into. You can search numerous picture subjects and wow, what results all has there to share with the public. Some photos that I never thought I would have taken an interest into using as a subject has caught my eye and peaked my interest enough to say, wow, I'm gonna try that. Well worth your time to check it out and see what ya think,anyway. Just search whatever comes to your mind on what you would like to see and walllahhh, it's there in all forms.
Beth, Hope your dog doesn't butcher up your lovely plants to much. I guess choppin them up with the tail is better than ingesting the foliage though. Better that end than the latter,huh or you could really have a mess on your hands. Do you have any begonias in your indoors collection, a couple kinda looked like it but I can't really tell as I'm just starting to get into the houseplants again. When my kiddies were wee little ones I gave up my houseplants for their safety but now that they're nearing graduation I felt, huh, I think it's safe now. I got a begonia plant from a garage sale and the leaves are gorgeous but I'm not sure exactly what window I should be putting it into. At the moment its in a north facing window, should it be in a south defused lighted window.
Susie, did you run out and make snow angels or catch a few snow flakes with your tongue? Remember doing that as a child? Gotta keep the child spirit in all of us alive by nourishing it. May take a we bit longer to get up and down from making snow angels but just as fun as the very first time.
I love all the photos everyone is contributing, this is so much fun. You gals really have some great shots to share with our group, Thanks
Peace Char

Char No time for snow angels was to busy trying to save my fish from a drained pond :(
the wind had blown over my bubbler & all my water drained out during the night . there was to much snow to get the hose out so i have to net the fish & bring them in till I could get more water in the pond :)
by the next day snow was gone & i refilled the pond
& Now you know the rest of the story :))

micke : what a cute pooch looks like one my sister had
"Gizmo" was his name .
I found a dog I want to adopt but have had no word on her yet :( still waiting .

Its an older chihuahua 7-8 yrs & has no hearing witch is good for the birds won't drive her mad with the noise :)
