Thankyou Pippy.....I appreciate hearing that and your positive feedback.....

Only thing is with Photobucket the website keeps jumbling the pictures around between pages and I sometimes post a picture multiple times. .

We have 3 trees with faces.....Tree Beard from the Lord Of The Rings(the squirrels steal his beard so I gave up on that) and his 2 kids....LOL....

I've just recently started gardening and following this forum, but here is my latest...

We had a huge, huge tree in our side yard which died and came down recently. Hubby hollowed it out for me and it took several of us to move it, but I put some drain holes in, filled and created a new front planter... As you can tell, we've still got some construction going on, and we live in the woods, but I'd love ideas for the front bank.. especially plants that love the Red Georgia Clay soil...

Pitts, your gardens and flowers are so beautiful--so tropical! I'm up in New Hampshire, so my gardens will never look like yours though I did grow some beautiful hibiscus for a couple of years (they got too big to drag the pots inside each fall for 6 months...)

I very much enjoyed City Dweller's pictures as well. Are these blooms really from this year?? WOW! I won't see my day lily or salvia bloom until the end of June, or later. What blooms late summer down your way?

The only thing blooming in my gardens right now are dafodills, and they just opened up a day or two ago. It's been a loooong winter, and I am very much ready for my gardens to come alive!!

Valerie: I have two gardens, plus a container garden of dahlias. I do not drag the container into the garages, what I do is I take the plant with soil around it, by trying not to disturb it as much as I can, I put it on a double plastic bag, hang it from the basement or garage ceiling or walls, and presto. Everyone comes back from their sleep beautifully. All my tropicals are in excellent shape.

My dahlias are 10-12 inches across. I just bought a camera, and as soon as my grandson teaches me how to place them here, I will surprise all of you. It is hard to catch up with these young folks, they are always partying!!! Go figure.......

Pittston: I enjoyed your flowers so much. They are beautiful. Keep up the good work, and thank you.... By the way, Sarasota is one of my favorite Florida places...

Everyone's photos are lovely! I so enjoy looking at other people's gardens!
Here are a few photos I took in my garden yesterday afternoon.

Some cool tulips.


Love these daffodils!


Yellow and red tulip.



Mini daffodils. There are 3 tiny flowers on each stem.
