This is my most favorite hanging basket I've ever had! I'm not even sure what all was in it, but it was all in pinks.

Thanks for sharing your picture of that beauiful basket. I love the tiny trailing plant.

By the way, I don't know a thing about dog showing or training but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at everything on your site. I hope everyone will click on your link at the bottom of your post above and look around your site

I have a beautiful German S. that really could be fun to train and just teach commands. I wouldn't have the patience for anything showy but just for the fun of it she and I might enjoy doing it. Stop back by to visit with us and show off your plants any time.

That is very nice, Deb.


This is our tangerine tree. The branches are bowed down from the weight of the fruit.

HI Kelli,

I didn't realize that a tangerine tree could be so loaded with fruit! Is that typical? That is just amazing to me.

I don't know if it is typical for all tangerine trees, but it is typical for this one. I think it is the variety "Honey". They seem to be identical to the clementines you see in the grocery store.

That tree is a treasure. I can't imagine going out and picking my own clementines! Wonderful! Like Deb said, "Amazing!"

What's nice about the citrus is that they don't have pest problems, so we don't have to spray. The birds leave them alone, too. The squirrel gets some, but not too many. We feed the trees and give them iron, and that's about it. They get watered along with the grass.

The orange tree is not nearly as productive as the tangerine but it does all right.

These are two lemon trees. We have two because we bought one before we knew the house already had one. It was so sickly that we didn't know what it was. Around here, citrus trees have to be given iron or they get chlorotic, which is sort of like the plant equivalent of being anemic.

Lordie, if I had any fruit that the birds didn't beat me to, I would fall out in a surprised faint. If it isn't the birds it is the squirrels!!!!!! If something didn't steal it before I could get to it, that would be the perfect fruit in my opinion!!!! I can't have nuts either because the squirrels get them before they are even ripe. Boo hoo!

That would be lemonade heaven for me!!!!! You are so lucky to have those great trees in your own back yard. Looks like I am just going to HAVE to come see you, Kelli, if I keep seeing all this good stuff. Just kidding.......I think. Tee hee! If Sharon can go all the way to Alaska to see Ava surely I can make it to California.

Wonderful Pictures, Windigo and Kelli! You are blessed to have those trees...

I have quite a few "no name" plants and flowers, but I treasure them just the same. A lot of them started out with names, but due doggies that pull up tags, tags that fade away to clear, weather, etc... these pretty lil plants are nameless...

Here are a few of my favorites... If you get bored of me, just let me know and I will stop. ;)

I love yarrow...

I used to have morning glories in the bed in front of my barn... this is how it looked back then... I wish I still had them... when Ike blew through here, this bed was re-arranged in another location, I lost the plants ...

I love the yarrow, Starr, and spiderwort in the third photo. Both favorites, and both much like the ones I have. I don't know the names of a lot of my iris and daylilies either, but I love them just the same.

Great pictures....love the lost MG's....
Ike took several trees with him when he swept through here too!

Ike surely did mess with both of your gardens. Bless your hearts. Moles, drought and old age on the parts of both of the resident gardeners have messed with mine. I gave up on tags years ago. I can't tell you the names of much of anything any longer. No tags lasted in my gardens for very long. Between the big footed country gardener who was accustomed to stomping through plowed rows in big boots Crying and dogs that were determined to pull up or tear down anything that looked like a tag I decided it was a losing battle not worth the effort. I even tried burying tags to no avail. I just wasn't meant to know the names but they are beautiful no matter what their names are.

I am getting so I don't know people's names either so I guess that is ok too. If people would start wearing tags I wouldn't have to call everyone hon. Rolling my eyes.

Truth should be everpresent.
I would have to take pics and make lists and maps. LOL I love daylilies but only have the wild orange ones here. That citrus looks good. My Mom has a few citrus trees in La. They won't grow here. I have planted blueberry trees and raspberries canes this year. Both are growing well. Got some strawberries and we inherited a very old apple tree when we moved here. It has some apples on it now. Hope they hold.
