Great post, Lynn! And here in zone 7, I'm still patiently (well, okay, not so much) awaiting the arrival of growing temps. Snow due tomorrow. Just happy for you, and glad to learn more.

That was great eye candy Lynn. Do not talk about cameras. You know that is a touchy subject for me anymore. Rolling on the floor laughing

I do not know if I told you but I did find the camera that the bird took. He dropped it in the woods I found it after all the died this fall. I thought for sure it would not work because we had a lot of rain last summer/fall but it works. But I still do not like the one the robbers took.

I can't believe you found the one that the bird stole. Wow. AND it still works. Now that is one tough camera. What kind is it?
So you never got the other camera back? Sad

When I had the break-in that one I never got back. I used the insurance money to buy another one. I had a Nikon and I went with a Sony with the insurance money. I liked the Nikon better. I have trouble adjusting the Sony. I like the DSLR cameras they are expensive but because I have so many acres of land I like cameras with a deep zoom.

When the bird took my Sony I did not turn it in to the insurance company because I was afraid they would think I was scamming them. Nobody should lose 2 thousand dollar cameras in a year unless they are running a scam. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes Greg. I was in the garden and laid it down. There were a few birds around picking up any worms I unearthed. Down swooped a huge black bird picked at the strap I ignored it and all of a sudden I saw my camera going up in the air; He thought he had got the biggest worm in the garden I guess. Shrug! I do not know how he flew away with it because it was not that small.

Thank you Cameron, I can't take much credit for the way they look. They are such tough plants and just take care of themselves. Just a little weeding now and then.
The grass like leaves are from the tiny Iris reticulata 'Pixie'. Once it is finished blooming the leaves elongate, but stay very thin, almost like grass. It started blooming the end of January this year.

Those irises look great with the Angelina leaves. The trolli and the monregalense look like bonsai trees. Thumbs up

Lynn, your Sedum trollii was purchased recently but it survived the Oregon winter? Oops just noticed you got it in the summer (not Fall) so not that recent but it made it thru winter...

Thank you Cinta, Iris reticulata will grow down to zone 3 and would look great in your garden and containers. It produces new bulbs very fast, so it wouldn't be long before you would have them transplanted everywhere. Hurray!

Cameron the S. monregalense grows like a weed, tough and reseeds easily. Trollii, I just realized from looking in our database, is not a sedum but a Rhodiola saxifragoides. Rhodiola saxifragoides
I need to print a new label for this one. Rolling my eyes.

Bev, you can grow Rhodiola saxifragoides easily, it is hardy to zone 6. Hurray!
It will make it through colder winters than we ever get here in the Willamette Valley. Big Grin

Wow it's best that the monregalense reseeds. The Silver Moon one almost looks like two different plants, it's another neat looking one. Thumbs up

The larger leaves on the 'Silver Moon' are from the older rosettes. You can see that it is producing new rosettes between the old leaves. It is a cross between two different sedum, S. spathulifolium x S. laxum. Helen Payne was the breeder.
