Sue and I are borrowing this idea from the Daylilies Forum. We'll post a sticky thread for incidental photos and chat for each month. This one will only be up for a few days and will then lose its "sticky" status and be replaced with an August thread.

Please feel free to start your own threads on various topics. This is just a spot to deposit a photo or two or a comment or two that might not warrant a separate thread.

I'll start the ball rolling with some photos of E. Veyrat Hermanos, a climbing tea. I've had this silly rose for three years now and this is the first time I'm enjoying the blooms. It always produces a million buds in the middle of the rainy season. They never open. Then it puts out buds again several times a year, but always during heat waves, so they never open. This year I finally have a flush that wasn't ruined by rain or excessive heat.

Took Zuzu for a bit of shopping yesterday, no plants, just grocery and tons of kitty food!
Brought my camera so I could quickly grab a few shots, I had ice cream in the car and couldn't stay too long. Rolling my eyes.

Names on images so you have to enlarge.


She was not sure of this cute mini but I just love it!! Possibly

This went on my wish list, every time I see it, I have to take a closer look and I love the perfect blooms and luscious colors.
Thumb of 2011-07-27/Calif_Sue/6a439b







Oh no Zuzu, I told you how bad my memory is! I already forgot the name of this one despite taking shots of it before, which I now can't find!
I am wracking my brain, maybe it will still come to me. Glare (two words...first syllable...ugh ugh)
Update, Zuzu to the rescue! It's Miss Behavin'.

A HUGE lily, probably 6.5-7 ft tall and very large blooms. Maybe we can get an ID on the Lily Forum.

I was actually going through your HMF list and was just starting on the M's!

Trish tree-mailed me last night as I said we didn't like the other rose and I quickly sent her a few options, that one looked the best when it was made into the small size.
This is the one I really loved!! http://vintageholidaycrafts.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/f...
and these are the other ones I thought were nice.

Love the new rose microbadge!

Edited: And by the way, I really love the rose and other photos! Zuzu's garden must be a heavenly delight to a great photographer like you! No wonder you moved nearby!

My garden's such a mess, though, Betja. I can't wait until Sue's garden gets going. She's so much neater than I am.

I just grabbed the question mark microbadge without knowing what it means. I can always get rid of it if it turns out to be something truly awful, such as "broccoli lover." Big Grin

I held my cursor over it and it says "What in the world is this?" Kinda like it!

And on second thought, I think I need one too!

I'm going to assume it means I am "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma," as Winston Churchill once described Russia.

Here's how I spent the last hour:

When Sue was here the other day, I noticed a pretty pink rose blooming in a redwood box, checked the label, and it had been snapped in half and the pertinent half was missing. It wasn't on any of my maps because it was growing in that redwood crate instead of in a flower bed. I tried to remember what I had planted there, but all I could come up with was Memoriam, although I know Memoriam is growing in another part of my garden.

It looked like a hybrid tea and I could tell it had been a Vintage Gardens label. All that was left on that half of the label was a "2," which had to be the last digit of the year of introduction, so I went to the Vintage site and searched for hybrid tea roses introduced in 1942, 1952, 1962, etc., and looked for a familiar name. Finally, in the 1992 group, I found it. It's Myriam.

Here's a picture of the lovely thing. It's really sunny out there right now, so I had to loom over the bloom to take a photo.

I'm relieved that my memory isn't completely gone. I planted the rose in there a few years ago and have never thought about it since, but Memoriam is very close to Myriam, so the memory is only a few ticks off.

Unlike my memory, which is just about gone!
