Has anybody got any toad lily blooms yet. Mine have just started to bud, which is early for me but they get a little sun here but at the old house they were in deep shade. They are such a small bunch from what I had.

Scareme, mine started a couple weeks ago. They're still doing very well right where I planted them.

I'll have to check on our toad lilies. They are thriving nicely even though they've been transplanted at least three times and should be blooming soon if they haven't already started.

OK, my Toad has 4 "stems" all with many buds, so far this is the only full blossom, so exquisite

I'm glad to here everyone's toad lily's are doing so well. I wish I had taken more with me when we left the old house.

Thanks for sharing the picture with me HR. Is that asparagus ferns behind them? I've never thought about putting them together. Good idea.

We're still trying to figure out the gardens at the new house. We have things like Cleome, which is going nuts. Knockout roses which look like crap 1/2 the time and grasses that we have to cut back every fall. Nice thing is that there is a huge Sycamore tree next door that shades our back deck and gives us lots of great leaves for mulching. We planted some things, hoping not to interrupt things we don't know about.

Yes Scareme, that is a fern in the background. It is in a large planter and I take it in for the winter, I've had it for maybe 10 years

With fall just around the corner, now would be a great time to get in on some of the end of summer sales going on right now at most garden centers and such. I've been able to score some really good deals on items to get ready for fall and winter, especially on grass seed and fertilizers for winter.

So I just thought I would throw it out there because there are a lot of great season ending sales going on right now. Never hurts to save some money on things you may need to get ready for the fall and winter coming our way.

Ours are blooming as well - so nice to see a little color in a fall garden.

Look what sprouted up in our yard overnight. We bought it in late summer, but the nursery said it had to go dormant before they could move it. The nursery has a policy where if you pay for them to plant it, they will guarantee the tree for a year. Except for Willows. Can I pick them or can I pick them? They said to many people let them die. But the willow is one of my favorite trees. I'm calling her Wendy.

OK. I bought three amaryllis a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. I planted all three on the same day and put them in the same window. This makes me so mad. The pink didn't even start sprouting until a week ago. I bet neither one will bloom. I wouldn't mind it so much if two out of three bloomed. At least one will be open for Christmas.

I love the look of willows.

Maybe the other 2 flowers are just late bloomers

I wasn't expecting to see growing plants in the dead of winter:) That's the beauty of having friends in warmer parts of the country who share their pictures.

My toad lilies are blooming. In fact they've been blooming for about two weeks now. At the old house they never bloomed before Halloween. I know the soil here is much richer so that might have something to do with it. I'll get a picture but I don't know if I can post it. Having some problems in that area.

Willows can take a pounding, Mine was a buy a treehouse one telephone poles when I bought the house wife wanted me to get rid of treehouse neighbor liablilities burned part of the tree it was so close and fire was so hot. Can back even bigger, bad thing is once they get older they are a real messy tree. Every year have so much that breaks off during the winter and wind storms.
