Your blooms are just lovely.

I wish I knew the name of your stand up thingy or better yet, what is attacking your WH Crying but I don't know either.

My yucca is in bud but not blooming yet.

I love the whirls of the clematis when they are done blooming Lovey dubby

Purty pics!

I'm with you, Sharon, the green things look familiar but I can't place them. The bumps on your witch hazel are galls, usually made by certain kinds of aphids. I had those things on another plant several years ago and found a good research report about them...was pretty interesting how the aphids made those little "houses" for themselves. I'll see if I saved that report somewhere. And not to worry, they don't do severe damage to the trees.

Horned galls. I Googled. What an ugly name for an ugly bump. What I read said to just remove the infested leaves; it's going to be bare naked when I get through with it. Thanks Shoe. I've never seen anything like those bumps.

Well Vic, my yuccas are on their downward spiral already, leaning over, dropping blooms. Funny how they are blooming earlier here. You are south-er than I am, but maybe a little cooler because of the mountains. It's going to be in the 90s today and I still have weeding to do. *moan*

And no sign of rain.

Is the brown center thing in your mystery plant a seed pod? Did it already bloom? If it was blue, try Love in a Mist which I think is Nigela or something close to that. I've only seen one blooming and am not sure the appearance of an unopened bud. I think a seed pod might be brownish if it was getting dry. Maybe.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

It hasn't bloomed, Mary. Lance said it looked like some kind of onion.
I'm still searching.

Mary, it's field garlic (wild garlic). I just searched till I found it.
Living as it is near black eyed susans and goldenrod, it's found a happy place. I think I'll just let it remain happy Smiling
