My pansies are still going strong, too, 14+!

But I'm drooling over your new daylilies! Your stepson has very good taste in daylilies.

And that perennial salvia is beautiful! I've never seen anything like that before.

All of your flowers are so pretty--and you have such a big variety.

Your stepson has great taste when it comes to the lilies!

Your coneflowers are absolutely stunning! I tried to grow them but had no success. :sad:

I tried to choose favorites but I couldn't. They're all beautiful . 14+, in addition to your nursery, do you ever do garden planning for others?

Funny how the pansys just keep on going. The daylilies - I just asked him to bring me home whatever colour they had besides the yellow and I would pay him. He wouldn't take any money of course. I have a purple salvia that I had posted a pic of a couple of weeks ago just like the pink. It was a new seed last year I tried. I like it. There may be a white one too. Will have to check the catalogue.

I'll tell him you said so. I thought I lost that bunch of coneflowers last year too. They looked horrible. Fungus was bad. But they came back better and bigger this year.

I wish! No. :sad: I had to get a "real" job this year so I could keep kitties fed and vetted so no nursery, no garden planning. But if you ask I would be glad to give you some ideas.

What pretty flowers u have! I love the daylilies, just beautiful. I love the coneflowers too. I lost all mine, so I will have to start more from seeds next year.
