I know I posted pictures of this hanging basket before but this is a new picture and besides I really like this basket of torenia.
I like it too. Is it in sun or shade? I see your hammock there.
This is a new kind of Lily. I've never had them before. It is called Orienpet. Similar to a Tree Lily but a different kind of bloom I think. Eventually it will reach 6' tall (so they say). This is its 1st year & already 4 ft. I have 3 of them. Another one has buds but no blooms yet & is not as tall as this one. The 3rd one, the deer found early in the spring before I realized it & ate the top off.
The bloom hangs like a Trumpet Lily.
But I stuck the camera under it so to take a better picture of the bloom. Came out pretty good.
This is not a flower exactly but this horse has found a way to cool off her head in the heat...I had to take the pic from the house because if I go close to her she comes to the fence hoping I have an apple or carrot for her. With the big exhaust fan running in the back of the greenhouse she has learned to cool off by standing in the door. Now I know the meaning of "horse sense"
Gorgeous Torenia basket Steve. All my seed started Torenia tanked after I put them outside during a warm spell in March. Noticed a few Torenia plants for sale at various nurseries yesterday but they all looked severely neglected.
I like those lilies Gayle, hope they do grow six feet tall for you. And I feel for that horse as it was so hot here yesterday & today will be close to 100 degrees. Glad to see she has a spot to cool down & keep your plants company too.
My yellow Calla Lily is growing a bit crooked as it tries to break through all of the other plants.
These pink Calla Lilies already have a yellowing leaf? Have another purple CL that never showed (just produced yellow leaves)?
Nearly missed these white CL's growing as they are hooked to the top of the fence & I hadn't noticed them unfurling until I climbed to water the basket.
If this is the same little one then it looks like she may be pregnant again.
Steve I have a torenia same color in a pot on my deck table.I wasn't going to get one this year but the kids asked because the black and yellow bumblee's like it and they squeeze the flower when they are in their. Molly it looks like the horse is sayin "where is she ? She is always in here?" LOL! This is my first cleome I have ever had and started from seed.Sandy
Awww, I like the way that horse thinks Molly, they are so smart! I love the Calla Lilly pics, that white is so pretty, I only have pink but think I might look into some white ones. I follow Steve's lead and show (only pic I could find) of my pink torena.
Steve....I can see why you love that basket!
Molly....lol....that is one smart horse!
Gayle...another very pretty lily....I can see why you like them so well. You have quite a variety.
MD....more great photos. It appears your Callas are doing well for you....lovely!
Del....I have a pink and white one drom seed, but no photos yet.
Sandy...you'll love your cleome. Stand back and let it grow and you will know why some call them spider plants.
I am really liking the Nierembergia (cup flower) that I started from seed this year. They certainly tolerated our hot temps so far. This one is called blue chip or something like that....the little blue flower is Baby Blue Eyes from Del
This is the white Nierembergia that I also got seed from Del....the star looking plant is Laurentia from Melissa on the seed train....and Blue Lobelia Regatta
Lovely blooms as always. Molly love the horse sense.
My Mountain Laural that has lived over in its pot for 2 winters. Hoping to get it in the ground this summer.
Growing and Cooking
I have a picture of my Cobaea that has just started blooming a couple of months early. Maybe I'll get seeds this year.
Gayle, that looks like my tall lily. I bought mine from a table at the side of the road so am not totally sure what it is, but thought it could be a tree lily. Remember this pic last July?
My rose, Eureckia, has started to bloom.
To Plant a Garden is to Believe in Tomorrow
Silly me, I needed to sign into my PB account to get to my pics. Anyway I have my flower pics moved into PB and can now show my flowers again.
Not a very good pic, but here is my floweringfern. I needed to get a little closer .
Gayle... Your lily is really pretty. Don't think I have saw one like that before. Its good to move the camera around sometimes too and see how your pictures turn out.......... My torenia says part shade to shade. I want to go out one night and get a picture of it in the dark.
Molly... That horse knows a good way to cool off but I see that pool there and thats the way I would cool off.
MDgreenery... Nice looking calla lilies there. Your hummingbird looks like its had plenty of sugar water..... If you like growing flowers for hummingbirds I would recommend trying a red bee balm. They are at mine almost constantly.
Deloris... I like your torenia. Thats a nice color. I had some kinda like yours but they didn't come back this year. :-(
Sandy... You have a really pretty cleome. Its a really good color.
Charlene... Your hanging basket is really pretty. You are really good at mixing and arranging flowers.
Bette... I like mountain laurel. They have really pretty flowers. I tried a couple a few years ago but they didn't live more than a couple of years.
Lair... What a pretty flower that is. Seems a lot of peoples flowers and things are earlier this year. Lets just hope winter don't come early as well.
Iris... Oh wow that is a beautiful lily. Hey did you know theres someone hiding behind your lily ?
Eva... What a big pretty blossom. I had no idea there was a fern that bloomed.
Thanks for all of todays pictures and comments. You folks have a lot of "wow" flowers and pictures.
Wow Charlene, of all these cupflowers I started, not one single one is blooming, let alone lush like yours is, I'm jealous. LOL I love that lily no matter what the name is, gorgeous and WOW tall.
