Flower collage


Everyone keeps saying I should do a flower collage. I got to my middle of June folder and ran out of room on my collage. My irises were definitely the stars of the garden this year. I am enjoying my new daylilies too. I'm not getting a lot of blooms, but what I have are really pretty.
Brian and I went to my mom's house to pitch her screenhouse. Thank goodness she wrote 'left top', etc on the poles! It took us about 45 minutes in very humid and mosquitoe-y weather to pitch it, but now she is a 'happy camper'. : ) I picked up old pots scattered about, planted some tomatoes (I know, it's late, but maybe she'll get an Sept/October harvest) and geraniums. I wish I had remembered my camera as she has a pink butterfly bush that is absolutely gorgeous (I planted it last year). The flower heads are at least a foot long!
We went to a pizza place around the corner and the owner is a gardener. He had an entire patch of zinnias-all colors-in full bloom! I was jealous as I don't have a single one that is opened yet. My bright yellow cosmos are blooming nicely-they reseeded themselves from last year.
I came home, jumped in the shower and was making the collage when my son called and said he had his cellphone stolen in a parking lot. He must have dropped it outside his car because he has a car alarm and it would have gone off if someone was trying to get in. He and his pals were smart enough to go right to the T-Mobile store and get the phone cancelled. He of course needs to get another one because he is a commuter student. It's always something!

    Hi Dianne! You found your way to my gardening blog (was it from SPH?) and asked about where to find daylilies. I find them wherever I can! If you check out all your local nurseries there's usually one or two you can rely on to have a good selection of different types.

    Other sources are online. For 'Barbara Mitchell' you could try http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/13721/
    and click on the link for places that sell it. Or just do a google search on the name of the daylily and your state, to find places in your area where you can buy it.

    Another beautiful collage...you are so talented at making them Dianne!! I spent yesterday weeding and moving some of my flowers...it was so hot and humid, I needed a shower desperately after I was done! lol There's nothing more exciting than when your plants start blooming...my lilies and clematis are now blooming so I was pretty thrilled about that! lol
