June started out unbelievably cold, although it didn't snow like the first of May, the temps didn't get out of the 40's for the first two weeks Thumbs down

Finally it's starting to feel like summer with highs in the high 50's and even reaching 60°F a few times Thumbs up The plants are blooming away despite the cold weather and aren't all that far behind normal schedule.

Herbie, I'm bring the My comment to the new thread.

How awesome to own a few of those trees. Is your property next to a park or State property?

Rann, everything is beautiful! I love blue columbines! I have the wild, a Red Hobbit and the yellow Swallowtail. The hybrids die in a few years so I save my money. These bloom early, so the hummingbirds have something to count on when they move in.

I love the Fall covers and your bridge, to the right.

As I said to Adina, I am amazed at the same flowers we have, even tho we're a ''world'' apart.

That's what makes gradening clubs so great!

It is pretty neat isn't it? Your columbines must be done by now though? I never thought of them as hummingbird-feeders! Hilarious! That is so neat! Big Grin

Some red-white-and-blue in honor of our independence day, June 17th. The red salvias are my younger daughter's chosen annual this year. I let them pick one every year that they sow and transplant - with a little help from me of course. Then I do all the watering ..... Whistling Hilarious!

Rann, I used to put out the feeder with the sugar water, but now I plant early blooming tubular flowers. I still have Columbines hanging on. I also have Husker Red Penstemon and Soloman's Seal. The hummers like them too. Now the Beebalm is just opening up.

Oooh, love the flowers and really love the mossy rock. It all fits together!

Awww, how sweet to have the girls plant things. Then they can better appreciate them when they bloom. I like red, white and blue plantings. The hummers should like the salvia too!

Sally - I could save you some seed from the blue one if you want. It's Aquilegia glandulosa - it's flowers are huge. It's really a stunning plant. :)

A belated Happy Birthday from me too, Rann! Hope you had a great day.

I love that Dianthus callizonus that you sent me seeds for. In fact, all of the kinds of seed you sent me have germinated. Thanks.

Yes, the dianthus is from your seed. The flower pattern can be a little bit variable, even on the same plant, but this pic is the normal look. None of the other species' you sent has bloomed yet (not surprising), except Dianthus pavonius. One seed germinated of Penstemon whippleanus last spring, and 15 this spring, all from the same seed sowing. Smiling A very common occurrence with penstemon, I have found.

Frank - great news! Thumbs up

Rick - well it's a beauty, so glad you got such a nice plant! Thumbs up It has the white spots like mine does, but the tips are a lighter pink which is an added bonus I think! Very pretty! Big Grin So good to know the other seed germinated as well :)
