    Logan. I will gladly forward the details to Fryers. You obviously have a name or contact at same. Otherwise the information being read by an order clerk, possibly be discarded.

    The first ever Iris blossom. I've had them for a couple of decades, and never had a bloom. The big birch trees coming down last summer have given a little sun love to those who missed it.

    Loggie— nice blooms. That Verbascum is looking quite nice.

    Mel— that iris is looking spiffy. I am glad to hear that it is blooming for you. In the years that it did not bloom were the roots exposed?

    Thank you Sjoerd. I'm over the moon about it. They were planted by a young lady who did not know to look ahead at progressing growing conditions. :rolleyes: Within a couple years of planting they were completely shaded by an expanding tree canopy from 6 fully grown birch trees and three evergreens. Three Birch and one evergreen came down three years ago, and last year the other three Birch came down. Hubby helped me clean out a lot of the wild overgrowth in the beds last year ( mostly thimble berries and wild raspberries). Flowers that were planted many years ago are showing their pretty faces for the first time or were long forgotten. :) It's quite exciting.

    What a thrill indeed.

    Our cucumbers are coming on. They aren't lovely flowers, but they taste pretty good. We know they taste good because there were five . . . .

    Heh, heh, heh— that is clear. They look pretty good indeed. My Bride is crazy about them. She is talking about yours now. Did you strike a jealous chord here?

    Zinnias are really enjoying our hot and humid weather! We plant them under the hummingbird feeders so the hummers have a choice--sugar syrup or zinnia juice.

    That is a cheerful scene, Jane. Zinnias have something, don’t they.
