|Your blooms are just lovely.|
I wish I knew the name of your stand up thingy or better yet, what is attacking your WH 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

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
