Captured some pretties today. Like the seedling Cheyenne Spirit. Can't hardly wait for the coral bell seedlings to grow up and show their true colors. Seedling daylilies. Like this forum, right or wrong it's what's going on with my addiction/obsession.

Very nice assortment of flowers and plants! I like your cream daylily that has a dark eye. May you be blessed with continued success!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

Note to self, Kniphofia Banana gummy, 5-17, bagged plants only one is taking off.
Little Missy and her "sister" both got transplanted to a hanging pot for the summer. "Sister" is a solid color sprig I found growing from Missy back in 2014. They spend the winter in the kitchen window.
Trying Coral Reef in a hanging pot this year just to see how long it would grow. It likes to run rampant and overtake the smaller sedum. Pulled long runners and potted.

Trying out different areas for Semp. I have never put as much time into other plants as I have Semps. They have become my fav. Most are NO Id or seedlings. Sir Wm. Lawrence stayed alive for 3 yrs., just this one little chick. Morning sun till lunch then even. shade. This year much growth and putting on babies.

In process of making new style hypertuffa pots for semps. Forms are old pots abt. 6" sq.. Four of these made so far, one I put small stones.

Thank you Lord this has been a beautiful, bright, cool day. Today was perfection.
Lost daylilies and hosta due to drought last year (even though I watered) plus last freeze got some things like my cherries and peaches.
Conjoined bloom on this American Revolution , 14 petals on one, 8 petals on another-same plant. That one has never done that before.


this one has dots, seedling

watermarks, may be Desert Bloom

So hot yesterday and today. This 4 o'clock is first to bloom this year. Area by property line I let them reseed and do their own thing. Like the different colored splash's.

Thumb of 2017-06-12/chickhill/719cc7hopefully I remember to make pic before it gets to dark tomorrow. Seedling lilies.
Thumb of 2017-06-12/chickhill/6c8249 Love the Cheyenne Spirit coneflowers. Have become my fav, colors go through many changes. Out of 6 blooming seedlings this one blooms red & orange, the other five bloom raspberry/pinky rose, so dissapointed Confused Oh well, waiting on many more seedlings to bloom.
Pow Wow white seedlings are blooming white. Pow Wow wild berry did not come back.
Noticed today my pink larkspur is splotched w/purple. Will try to get a pic tomorrow. Don't know if I can get down that low (storms blew them down).

Linda-- I like all the colors you have! The color splotches on the 4 o'clocks is divine. Nothing like a plant that does all the work and plants itself! The daylily are simply beautiful! The Coneflowers are a nice mixture!
Good job Thumbs up

May you be blessed with continued success!

The SEMP. photos w/tags MAY NOT be correct- they are for me to compare to real ones in data base. The birds really done a number on them when I had them in a bed. A lot of incorrect plus seedlings I grew. I do have some with correct ID
