Celebrating Gardening: 2015
I can someone taking flowers in bloom or a bulb and that would tick me off....
but last night someone took most of markers as to what my lilies are
so that is going to make it hard to identify most of the them when they come in bloom for me......
likely some teens doing a prank for the night
but still ticks me off..

I know most of the lilies that are planted though.......

but still............going to be posting pics on here for some of them to be identified for sure.......come bloom time

@patweppler It is funny (not really) that you mention this. When I finished planting out yesterday (dahlias) and putting my little white name tags I was thinking how awful it would be if one of the smaller children who live in our cul de sac were to pull them up. Maybe even worse to switch them around. I could probably figure it out but still. I know how you feel.

You can prevent loss of ID by also making a plastic label and use a paint pen. Bury the label just below the soil surface where the above ground label is. This is a backup type save to use in addition to your above ground labels. You can also make garden maps with labels for the locations but I am usually too lazy to do that.

I think with photos and list of names we can all figure this out for you.

thanks lets hope so.....
there are lot of lilies out there .......
a lot of them are in larger groups so they might not be as much of an issue
