Neng...you've got something bright blue in with the orange daylilies...just wondering if it was a flower or an ornament!

Those flowers look like Himalayan Impatients...major self seeder.

Double click the photo K, I think it's a bright blue watering can or pail. Something like that.

I miss my orange daylilies.... :cry:

I just love the Himalayan Impatiens! They grow well in any conditions I find. I particularly love it at the end of my fence. They come up there every year, and the others that self seed just get a mowing over in early Spring, or are given away to friends. :D

those Himalayan impatiens(at the time didn't know what they were) grew freely around the farm house we rented when we first moved to freezing Manitoba. landlord did some 'landscaping' and tore them all out and threw them in the bush. was by there last summer and they are taking over the bush , growing everywhere 25 years after they were thrown there. very hardy self seeder. wondering if you laides that have a problem with them takiing over??
