Last night we had our Garden Club meeting. It was originally supposed to be at Ramona's (The Hydrangea Queen) house. However, she had something come up and instead we had it at the Satsuma Library.
The Hydrangea Queen told me about this AMAZING blue lacecap hydrangea she had blooming, she told me to stop by and get a picture of it. Well that one picture turned into 100!!!
First I had to go to my next door neighbor's....do ya'll remember me telling you about all of her daylilies? I promised you pictures of them in bloom.
Let me refresh your memory....Mrs Sandra has over 3000 daylilies, 1500 types!!!!!!!!! It is really amazing.
I find it interesting how certain gardeners are interested in certain things. Mrs. Sandra like daylilies and roses. The Hydrangea Queen.....you will NEVER guess what she loves!!! LOL!! The Dirt Princess, well i'm not picky.........I take whatever God gives me!
I took 150 pictures of daylilies yesterday.....some of the same flower. I narrowed them down for ya'll. So here you
Now let's mosey on over to The Hydrangea Queen's castle. I really don't know how many hydrangeas she has...I am going to guess 18. Seems like a good guess.
I have already warned the Hydrangea Queen that I am coming over this weekend with clippers in hand! I am going to root several of these. The blue lacecap was a cutting someone else had given to her.
Now other odds and ends I photographed in my garden, Hydrangea Queen's and Mrs Sandra's garden yesterday.

At the meeting we discussed some really great ideas. Some I can share now....some later. One is a plant sale that we will be doing. We are still working out the details. It will be a great sale though...lots of good plants. We want to do our own plants...root them, plant by seed, etc. We are leaning more towards heirloom plants...what do ya'll think. What do you look for when you go to plant sales...I need your ideas!!! Bedding plants, annuals, perrennials, specialty plants, heirloom plants? Leave me some ideas in a comment.
I will share the other idea soon...it was REALLY AWESOME!!!!!! I will let ya'll know soon....it involves a monthly community function...I will leave it at that for now!
I know it is FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been a little busy this morning....but I have not forgotten about my sweet Kiki.....
