I really have enjoyed looking at little glimpses of everyone's gardens. What's the best way to post and share a few of my own?

I upload my photos from my camera to the "manage attachments" section here. That's the only way I know of, but I'm sure others can be more helpful.

1) shasta daisys are finally starting to bloom 2) pink hydrangeas are looking better 3) cinnamon fern looks a little weak (first year) 4) lilies are starting to spread 5) the Boston Fern was DEAD! I'm proud that I'm nursing it back to health. It looks WAY better than it did.

That's all for me, folks! I'm running outside to work in my flower beds until dark.....make hay while the sun shines!

Rainroosty told me about www.tinypic.com, and that's what I use. Works great!

Beautiful, rdlr! Love the hydrangea! My shastas just started opening a couple days ago. I expect to have tons of them in a few more days, especially if the sun comes out! We've had unbelievable amounts of rain this month in NW Indiana. Garden is growing very well as a result, but some buds seem a little shy about opening sans sunshine. We're supposed to finally get some clear skies on Thursday, so I'm crossing my fingers!

This is a test with my first garden picture using Photobucket. I have a lot more than I realized (40+ ) so let's see how it works before I try anymore. It should be pink Thrift in front of ear leaf Coreopsis with yellow blooms.

ooops didn't work the way I expected...

I think I have the hang of it so that first picture should work:

http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr240/EmJWilson/Garden%20Flowers2010/IMG_4235.jpg (broken link) The pink is thrift and the yellow is the coreopsis.

http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr240/EmJWilson/Garden%20Flowers2010/IMG_4206.jpg (broken link) Rock wall with last years's Verbena growing right out of it as well as on top!

http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr240/EmJWilson/Garden%20Flowers2010/WestViewFront.jpg (broken link) Daylilies were going like gangbusters this year!

Nice pictures! I live in Maine, not a whole lot blooming in my yard right now, a stella d'oro, a small bunch of pinks, a few yellow daylillys along the edge of the woods. My annuals are still pretty small, not interesting yet. But, my fairy roses are just beginning to open, one bud here and another there. I must remember to take pics.
