Look at that Banner! It is perfect!

How timely..some Monarchs are on their way, hope that cold front down in Mexico didn't do much damage to them! Beautiful, Marilyn!

Marilyn, seeing the banner as you submitted it originally, before the "fitting" is even more striking. That fencing just frames your subjects beautifully. This is one of those really unique banners. Love it!

This just screams summertime! Very nice I tip my hat to you.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thank you @Paul2032, @MISSINGROSIE, @plantmanager, @jmorth, @LindaTX8, @pirl, @Fleur569 and @luvsgrtdanes for the nice words.

Thank you @Fleur569, @jmorth, @krobra, @mellielong and @Mutisia for the generous acorn tips.

Thank you everyone for the thumbsup.

If I can find the actual pic (from my photo files) I made the banner with, I'll post it.

I'm pretty sure this is the pic. Taken July 7, 2006 in the morning.



I'd let the Verbena bonariensis really go to seed and I had lots of them growing.

In years I had so many plants, that I was pulling them out. Then, I got to missing them and thought I'd buy another plant. To my pleasant surprise on day, I noticed a plant growing on its own. I've been letting them go to seed, since then. I don't have as many, as in 2006, but that's ok.

In the pic, the brown seedpods are Larkspur, the red flowers are Crocosmia 'Lucifer' and there were some daylily flowers mixed in.

Many photos we took before ATP and banner choices are turning out to be so useful!!
The fence in it adds to the butterfly and the blooms come next. Lovely banner!
