Now we’re talking
Keep it coming
This one is Eyeliner, not really fragrant but pretty cool. It's an Orienpet, they are very vigorous inter species hybrid. eyeliner.jpg
This unknown pink one is over 7' tall
(Actually it's 'Pink Perfection')

Not watering the lawn, but an OK view from the bench where I rest in the shade of the Crabapple after working in the garden.

My first time growing Cherokee wax beans (bush) and they are producing great for their little footprint. Today's picking.

We have an odd 4' x 4' corner in our back yard that we didn't know what to do with so we just dumped a big PNW wildflower seed mix in and let it go. I love seeing a variety of flowers in it, something new every week.

Garden progression! Roses and dahlias in full bloom, cosmos popping, and a surprise giant sunflower that nobody remembers planting.

Maters coming on. Me thinks the little sun sugars and smaller varieties don’t like the hot, hot weather. The larger varieties doing well. A bit scared of the Satans Kiss peppers but they’ll be ready soon. Lettuce and peas are about done now, will replantbin a couple weeks. This young robin liked hanging out around the veggies. 9D059FA2-F06C-458D-8D52-4E87D44D751F.jpeg F8AB7908-E2DD-4FB1-A3B5-DB9166A801ED.jpeg 2AFD894A-19F9-42AE-8CE5-729A56035A10.jpeg 8F3A6E17-F9AE-42C6-95B0-4F1CD8CE4310.jpeg A87C2864-A908-4FBC-AF0F-9D9F4CE66AE1.jpeg

More Lilies...all are fragrant.


This is Trebbiano, first year for us but so far so good. Supposed to be more a greenish yellow, but may be our soil or the bulb stock that has it soft yellow for us.

This is Conca d' Oro..we've grown this for 4 years now, a very nice plant.

This is Corcovado, another we like a lot.
Solid lily with a long lasting flower.

These are all in containers, 3 bulbs to a pot, and they are facing west on the stairs into the flower garden.
Easy to grow, right now they are doing their thing to the max.
:)

This one is Elusive, fragrant and about 6' tall, we are growing it in the ground. Very nice lily with tons of large flowers.

We bought a small green house because of dogs and bad weather here in Montana. The one dog would pull your plants out of the dirt and eat them. We stuck a couple of tomato plants and some Cuke starts in it. Well the Cuke starts were mislabeled, and now they are zucchini plants. They are growing like weeds. There are a few good one on it. I told the wife to let them go. She uses them plants for zucchini bread.

I really don't care for squash of any kind. But I'm not stopping her from cooking them up. If I'm still here next year we are going to have that little Greenhouse full of starts. Everything grows good in it.

Greenhouses are the answer to Montana's cold, short growing season. Greenhouses are a great help for getting your garden plants growing. Glad to hear it's working out for you..!! :)
