Welcome to The Porch Swing!

Everyone is welcome to join us on the Porch Swing. A thread where we talk about cooking, books, pets, birthdays, TV, the area where we live, anything that isn't on topic for the regular daylily threads. The subject on the Porch Swing is always changing.

Don't worry about reading all of the thread, just jump right in. We're sure you'll enjoy visiting with us.

We have many threads covering a wide variety of information on the topic of Daylilies. The Daylily Forum has two threads for off topic discussion - Weather In Your Garden for weather related chat and The Porch Swing for all non-daylily messages and chat.

When a new Porch Swing thread is posted, the old Porch Swing threads will be left up for a few days, then periodically deleted, so be sure to copy any items out of the old thread that you want to keep when you see a new thread is up.

* All other off topic threads will be relocated to the appropriate Forum. If you inadvertently post an off topic thread to the forum, please let us know and we'll move it into its proper place, and if we see it before you do, we'll let you know by Tree-mail that we moved the thread.*

Thumbs up excellent guess!


I love all the little "spoons". Grew it in a container mix last year. No container plants this year other than my amorphophallus and calla lilies that spent the winter in the cellar. Not worth risking getting covid back in May to go get them. Sad

Chiming in here about Happy Father's Day to the guys. All the gardens are looking so really good right now. I have stragglers still, but mine aren't defined borders, just areas in the green. Was digging and discovered my dry soil is literally powder, not quite as fine as talc tho, chuckl. It made the post easier to dig out. My lorapetulums are blooming just when I was going to trim them back. Major pruning waiting for Jan. As they have gotten too tall and leggy on the top.

Disgusting

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
