Loves, your photos are great. I agree that there is a value to having a mature garden. If I can figure out how to post (without help from children) I'll send a picture of my garden.

But aren't you cheating a bit with this picture posting bit when you say to MJ "MJ, if I can figure this picture posting out you can too I'm sure!" I'm referring to the fact that you still have a child at home to help you!!

Barb - my yellow roses are Eldorado (floribunda). We have these on the east side of the house. They are more prolific this year than ever before . . . not sure why! They were planted in 2004.

I also have another beautiful yellow rose, but that bush has just never really taken off - a Julia Child - and I think DS gave that plant to me for Mother's Day in 2006 - seems it was just introduced that year. When I get a nice rose from Julia, I will post a pic. However, I have been very disappointed w/ that bush - it has not been vigorous at all. It may not get enuff light where it is - and I have been thinking about moving it after this season.

Sunny - if you upload them into the CD URL rather than external hosting (like Photobucket), when you attach them to your post, they will come in as thumbnails.

BTW, love your zinnias!

Now, now, Himain. When you get ready, you have all of us here to help you w/ the plant selection, LOL!!! Trust me - there are plenty of things you can plant that will not require much care at all - and will brighten up the landscape.

But Ani, your thread said "Flowers". I have just clipped the dead blooms on most of my newly planted perennials plus the knockouts are just coming back with their second round. Maybe the petunia's then...

Darn, Bibit. I should not have made it so specific. I wanna see what is out there growing - and those herbs are an achievement, too!!! Heck, if someone has a pretty lawn - I would love to see it - my grass is still struggling. What a mess we have. It is going to take a lot of work to get our lawn straightened out after the damage last year . . .

So I say - post pix of anything that is growing well and you are proud of!!! We all work so hard on our plants . . . a moment of satisfaction seeing a pretty picture - and enjoying everyone else's pictures . . . makes it feel like there is a pay off in the end . . . so you post anything you wanna post - we don't care if it is a tree you are proud of.

They are a North Carolina plant meant to be. (I think they originated in Mexico).
They can handle the summer heat and only require weekly watering.
Im sure if I dug last year's up and put them in house pots that they might have survive for another year.
I like how they attract butterflies and bees.

Im glad you guys are on the photo wagon now but I still have not figure how you guys do thumbnails I only know copy and paste from photobucket and insert image at the top of the post.

I love your roses since I am jinx when it comes to them. Some disease usually wins on them so I gave up on them.
Sunny, some roses are disease resistant.

disease resistant roses

You do have to check the description to make sure that they are repeat bloomers.
