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 me know and I'll move it into its proper place, and if I see it before you do, I'll let you know by Tree-mail that I moved the thread.*
* This is a daylily discussion forum. Many of our members come here to relax and get away from the constant barrage of advertisements, spam, robocalls etc. in our everyday life. While we talk about hybridizing, hybridizers, websites, gardens, growers, sellers, purchasing plants and products, pretty much everything daylily, there is no selling or advertising in the Daylilies forum threads or posts. NGA has its own forum, the Classified and Group Buys Forum, for advertising sales. Sale and advertising threads in the Daylilies forum will be moved to the Classified forum. Individual posts in threads may also be moved to the Classified forum and/or the member will receive a tmail from me. *

It has been a very long summer here, Ginny. Sure hope we get some kind of a fall here soon. 🍁🍁

Not for me, it was the summer from hell, Angry with searing temperatures for our area, no rain, out of control forest fires burning everywhere, burning one town to the ground, and many homes burned in others, choking smoke that kept us housebound, we are fortunate that out town was saved, I welcome fall with the cooler temperatures, hopefully we will get some rain, it is still very dry here. Sighing!

Garden club today - cut some scapes from a cranberry and cream bicolor NOID that is covered with prolifs for show and tell. Will invite folks to take them home and give growing them a try. Always reaching out to garden lovers to show them what fun daylilies can be!

I'm jealous, Rita. My tomatoes have been so done for quite awhile. In fact, it's time to rip them out.

I'm still getting bell peppers and a few eggplants.

I'm still picking cherry tomatoes, they'll be going for a while yet.

I took some lovely photos in my neighbor Theresa's yard this morning. My garden flows right into hers, we share Daylily Hill and have paths between our two yards. Here's the fantastic view down there

Just beautiful Zoia & Rita, too Thumbs up
Our next door neighbors have sold their house. I am sooooo hoping someone our age will move in, grow 50 tomato & assorted veggies and will be begging me to take some. Someone like Rita Lovey dubby
Our yard has just too much shade...but their yard is flat & sunny.

I am getting just a few more tomatoes...I think tonight we'll have omelets with maters, cheese , onion & herbs from the garden.

What an enchanting area, Zoia. Lovey dubby Wish I had neighbors like you two. No one gardens much around here. Rock yards mostly with a cactus here and there. Sad
