|I don't have a garden any longer since I moved and all my daylilies are at James Hall's place, but I decided to spruce up my daylily bed that has some of my show flowers in it. These won't get dug and divided for quite awhile so I decided to add some annual flowers to the bed as well as some garden critters. I will be adding a hummingbird feeder tomorrow with a couple more in other parts of the yard.|
I cut this photo to try and show what the area used to look like where the bed is now. You will have to CLICK the photos to see the full photos
This is after we cleaned everything up and planted most of the daylilies
Jan 20, 2012
Lots of new growth
March 07, 2012
After the new plants have been added. There is petunias, verbena, and some snapdragons. The snapdragons are the bright yellow, but it doesn't show up that well in the photo
March 28, 2012
Once the new plants perk up and get bigger and in full bloom I will post more photos

|NICE! It looks so lush and i really like the bright pink of the petunias. I also really like the rock edging. |

Looks great Michele!

|WOW! Did you have to purchase all those stones, or is the soil there rocky? I can't really imagine which would be the worse, digging up that many rocks or buying, hauling and unloading and stacking??? I can say something for sure, your beds are beautful and the daylilies are even blooming yet. When they all do their growing, greening and blooming thing. it'll be goregous!!! Love it Michele. |
One thing, are these beds at your house or James? I don't remember?
Again, beautiufl and I know you enjoy getting to work in a bed for a change?

|Michele, you are such a hard worker. You did a great job on the beds. Love the raised beds with the stones. The annuals will add so much color. Give yourself a pat on the back. Please post photos when the daylilies start blooming.|

Mona: if I had to dig up all those rocks they'd still be in the ground and if I had to buy them they'd still be at the store
The beds are at James' house because I have no room for anything plus what yard there is it's all shaded. All his beds in the front are made out of these rocks. He got them when he was having to drive somewhere on a regular basis (can't remember where) and there was this place with all these rocks and the person who's property they were on said he could have them so he loaded up his truck every time he went.
Here's some photos of all his beds made of the rocks.

|Love seeing these Pics. of all the great beds. James must have really put a lot of elbow grease into rock hauling at the time. I love it all.|

|Who is James?|

|James Hall is a hybridizer ( his intros start with Buddy's). He also sells a lot on the lily auction (Mljomo)|

|Michele, we really like the rock beds. We use a lot of rock here that we have had to buy. We have had to make lots of terraced beds for our daylilies, because we are so hilly and make them out of whatever materials are available at the time. I wish we had a source for free rocks!|
I second what Ann said. You are a very hard worker! James Hall is blessed to have you as his helper. You are knowledgeable and love daylilies. You will treat his daylilies as your own. All the daylilies in the pictures are so healthy. Please keep the pictures coming.

|Michele and Kim have made some vast improvements at the Hall's place, and Laura and James could not be happier with the progress and having those two ladies as friends. Again, great job.|

|Very nice!!! Love the rock beds!!!|

|Michele - Nice job on the daylily beds, the stone work looks great.|

|What beautiful beds and I'm sure James was a determined man to get that much rock. It sure did turn out good. I bought from him in 2007 and again this year. He has great plants.|
Michele, you have done a great thing by teaming up with someone like this. It's good for all and in todays world that a wonderful thing. You and James are blessed to have each other!!!
I love these pictures. It sure puts some ideas in ones head. We have a dear friend up in Middle Tennessee that gave us all the rocks we wanted. We delivered some windows my son sold up there once and took the trailer(8x12) by their place and went rock hunting. If we hadn't had 2 23 year olds with us, we would have gotten much smaller rocks!!!! We totted rocks for 2 hours and we still had plenty of room on the trailer, but the tires would have blown if we had added anymore. Sandstone is beautiful and I'd love to get more, but it's HEAVY!!! So, I have an idea of what James did. HE DID ALOT!!!! We didn't have enough to make a bed 4 x 8 so I just put them single file around one bed and a few placed in other places.
Blessings to all, Mona
