Green Thumb Sunday - June 27, 2010

I've barely begun a Garden Tour post (from last Sunday's tour). We've so enjoyed this busy week, as we "hosted" the visit of two grandchildren from out-of-town. Here's one taking a peek at Susan-scare-the-birds.

And a peek from behind! :-)

In the top photo you're seeing Obedient Plant (right side) and 'Strawberry Candy' daylily on the left. 'Custard Candy' is peeking out from behind - way out in the Woodland Walk. :-)

Cute pics Susan is indeed scary LOL love the Strawberry Candy daylily.

Sue Swift said...

So - you named your scary scarecrow after me. Hmm. Don't think I won't remember ...

Shady Gardener said...

Rosemary, I cannot get onto your site. As it is uploading, I see everything, but when it's finished - all I see is your header.

Can anyone else leave Rosemary a message for me???

Hi Sue! :-) You ARE Swift! lol. My Sstb is not so much. ha.

Rosey said...

I was just telling my son about the Obedient plant because we were planting Sensitive plants and he loves those "interactive" plants.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Hi Shady,
Your granddaughter and Susan look very nice together in photos. I want a Susan to scare the rabbits away.

I had to laugh about your exchange with Sue Swift.

I was glad to see the strawberry candy daylily. I got one from a local plant sale, and it looks like it will bloom this year.

I went to Rosemary's blog to leave her a message for you, and all I got was the header, too. I didn't think to look on her profile page to see if she has an email address listed. Did you check that?

I hope you are enjoying summer. It's going by pretty fast. I love daylily time, though.

Love the fox kit! Dunno if they eat plants, :).

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Rosey! Your son needs to know that there's an Obedient Plant 'Vivid' that is NOT obedient. ha! (It reseeds all over. As long as the seedlings are tiny, they are very easy to pull!)

Hi Sue, YOU should have a Susan! :-) Perhaps We'll have a drawing for one, one of these days . . . that would be fun!!

The summer is going Very quickly, but now that it's "daylily season" it is soooo enjoyable!!

Hope to get to Omaha sometime, but don't know when. I'll let you know!! :-)

Hi Monica, He's so cute, I really didn't care if he nibbled a bit! ha.

Shady Gardener said...

Oh! Sue, thanks for trying to leave a note. Rosemary does NOT have an e-mail address on her profile (boo!)

Love the lady carry the flower buckets! CUTE!

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Cameron! Thanks! :-) I think everyone should have a "Scare-the-birds" don't you?
