Lulu, Dan and all others here, you are obviously all superb gardeners. One of the things I love about the soup is we get glimpses of peoples lovely gardens at various times of the year, that we might not otherwise see. Note I am careful to take mainly closeups, which obscure my weed experiments.

BBQ that is the riddle of common names. And I could be wrong it could be turtle head, and I may have to forfiet a T in the upcoming soup as a result.

Eeyore. Euphorbii is not really correct, no. Sorry. Botanists (I was going to say WE but that might be bit of a stretch) don't usually pluralize genera, they would just refer to Genus Euphorbia, and that makes it plural.

And it is not as stiff and formal and sciency and scary as it sounds. Either.

Giggle! I knew that Kat, I was just ribbing Kelly for posting plural Euphorbia in the same photo. :lol:

Beautiful BB, many years ago I had a cactus bloom. Mine was orange-yellow. Bloomed once that that was it. It certainly is exciting. How long did the bloom last?
I love my euphorbia but it spreads like crazy, but since my garden isn't purfect it fits right in.
The pictures are wonderful.

Brenda,
The picture of your Endless Summer Hydrangea makes me want to try to grow one! Stunning!

Here are my E's:
Ed Norris Daylily - I'm not a huge fan of yellow flowers, but this is a nice yellow, and it had tons of blooms (good for its first year).

Eupatorium - this is taking over the side garden. Must attempt to keep it in check THIS summer.

Liz, I like to see veggies in the soup and your eggplant is a winner.

Donna, your Ed Norris Daylily is outstanding - what a lovely colour.

Excellent E's everybody.

Now I feel you can not have too many or see too many Echinacea so on that note here is a selection of mine.

This Echinops is very pale, I do have darker blue ones, but the bees don't care what colour they are.

I love poppies and sprinkled a pkg of Eschscholzia californica in several spots last year and was rewarded with not only the orange, but that lovely pale yellow one as well.

(I have an Activa ad covering my note this AM, aaaagh)
Like Betty, I feel you cannot have too many echinacea.
I have never seen one I didn't want but since they are the
only 'E's' I have...
Here they are
Double Decker (divided last year so not as amazing as before. This
year should be better)

Ruby Star (never fails me)
