So pretty, Winston! :cloud9:

My Jacob's ladder finally had a few flowers on it...before the snow....not sure if they're still there now. :o And the dandelions are blooming. But that's about it! :D Nothing as colorful as what you have--and my bleeding heart is only about 4 inches tall so far.

Can't wait to see pics of your clematis in bloom :thumbs up

Love your azalea!!! :flirt:

Oh Wow! You're bleeding hearts are out already Winston?

We're just a stone throw away and mine haven't even broke out a bloom yet! :frustrated:

Being in Kansas today with the wind didn't help any. :yell:

Beautiful Winston!!! :cloud9: I am envious. I just have not had much time to work in my gardens this year yet. They are really suffering. :( Hopefully I can get to them next week when I'm off for a day or two. :fingerscr
Love you little moss basket. They are always neat to have around. Check your dollar store and see if they have anything you can use to make another one if this one breaks.

All your flowers look awesome!!! Roses, peonies...the scents must be intoxicating! :flirt:

Your clematis plants are absolutely stunning!

Thanks guys I have had no time to weed either and I just finished planting my veggies..way behind....I am having a plant sale in a few weeks and donating the money to rescue so I am gonna be busy!

The clematis is so neat this year with the 2 colors.....! on the left of it I also have a double headed white one I forget the name but its really small still...

June 5th, 2010, 10:16 PM
Great idea!! Just please remember to put some of your allium seeds aside. I will pay you for them and you can donate that as well. I have a spot that needs tall stuff!! :D Just wish they lasted longer into the summer.

I'm jealous!

I tried to grow on three different occassions, White Henry clematis and they never took. :frustrated:

Your clematis are beautiful Winston along with all the other blooms! :cloud9:
