I went out tonight when I got home from work and took this picture and then after I saw those unwelcome guest on it I almost deleted the picture but decided to go ahead and use it anyway.
Steve, do you know what the guests are on your B'fly Bush? Something is eating the foliage on mine but I can't figure out what. I don't see anything on the bush during the day & I'm pretty sure it is not slugs. Some of the eaten parts are way up at the top of the plant.
Some More Daylilies (with names)
Pumpkin Kid (New this year)
Love Those Eyes
I have some more un-named ones for another time.
Steve those are June bugs and they disappear after June. Don't know where they go ??? In my other picture yesterday that is lobelia (Cardinal flower) and other plants. This is my white phlox it took 3 years to bloom. I think it's worth the wait. Sandy
Forgot to post the picture. Whoops
Gayle sounds like you have earwigs munching at night. That looks like a beige japenese beetle. LOL Our June bugs are a lot bigger than that. Here is an osteospermum that was about dead and I got for like 75 cents on clearance and it seems to like the 3-tiered planter, think it was zinc or copper something, I'm so bad about remembering the names
Steve...that is a pretty BB inspite of the bugs. If those are June bugs, they sure grow them alot smaller in NC than they do here....lol.
Gayle...very lovely lilies....you have such a nice variety of them.
Sandy...I love my white phlox....and my other phlox as well. They are just starting to open here, which is much earlier than noraml like everything else.
Del....that is a pretty osteo.....I have my 3 tier planter on the north this year with shade plants. It is shaping up, but not picture worthy yet...lol.
I have another annual garden in progress pic today.
This was taken May 23
These 2 photos were taken June 23rd. DGS calls this my fire garden....lol. Charlene
Gayle, could it be grasshoppers? Of course you would see them during the day, though. I have them eating my hibiscus and dahlias. Wish I could find some kind of trap. The turtle loves them, but I have to catch them for him.
Wow, Charlene, your bed is beautiful. Things are beginning to look bad here, and the heat this weekend will make it even worse.
I started this last year with seeds from Park. It is suppose to be red. Does it look red to you? Don't know if I posted it before. Sometimes I forget when I take a pic with my cell if I posted it here, or sent it to DS so he could have a good laugh.
Charlene your changes in the garden are amazing! Steve we have those same beetles, I don't know their name either but I too think June bugs are bigger.
Here's some kind of ground cover flower I had for years.
black eyed susan
more of the same gaillardia
posted this before & of course, i forgot the name
i thought this was the same but i'm not sure
pansy i started
i'll end with a snap.
Today I've got some Asiatic Lillies just finishing their bloom.
It seems that the hurricane last fall moved most of my phlox from one bed to another. There are still a few left in the area they have been in for years but I am finding them in all kinds of strange places this year but the strangest is next to my BACK porch in the persicaria which normally chokes even the weeds out:
You know.....I never get tired of going through this thread every morning. What a pick-er-upper!!!!!
Here is the Malva that I started from seed. I am not lucky with seeds, but every once in a while some survive to become plants....LOL It's still a baby!!!!!
Can't get a picture without weeds. Guess I need to get to work.
Growing and Cooking
Everyone has such beautiful blooms. My beds are filling in but not a lot of blooms yet.
My clematis near my mailbox. I used to let it climb the mailbox til it got too big. It has a trellis now that I rigged up, but even that is not big enough anymore.
I put this on the wrong day. Saw Steve's pink ROS , which I liked, and wanted to put my blue on. Now it's on both days.
This is one of the knock-out roses I was sure would not survive. The plant was quite ugly a couple of weeks ago. Now the bottom is still ugly, but it is sending out buds that are now blooming. I have never had roses like that. If a rose survives here in our zone, that is a tea rose/floribunda, or grandiflora, it sends out nice thick stems, and then the buds. Not the knockout roses. All 4 of the ones I have start off just awful. Then the blooms come out and I forgive them.....LOL
