Wow....that looks like a "Tigger". Bet you got him cheaper than every other place I've seen. Wal-mart has amazing prices. Unfortunately, I bought a "Gay Paree" peony last year that was supposed to be cerise pink with a creamy white centre...I got a completely white one. It's still very pretty, just would have liked the "Gay Paree". I've bought many other plants true to form with no complaints. It's just that peonies take such a long time to establish themselves that a person really doesn't want to wait a couple of years to discover they have the wrong plant and then start over....you know what I mean? Maybe I should stick with ferns and hosta or daylilies in bloom to know what I'm getting. Having said that, I bought some clematis that were exactly as advertised...mislabelling can happen anywhere I guess.

Hi Sandy, and welcome!

There are a couple of ways to add a picture here. One is via the forum itself, when posting. At the bottom of your posting window, there will be a tab that says "upload attachment". Click it, then browse to your picture on your computer. Click the picture, then, ADD ATTACHMENT and post.

The easier way, to me, and many on here, is to upload your pictures to an online hosting site. Photobucket is a favourite, as it's easy.

Create your free account, upload your pictures, then share them here by highlighting and copy/pasting the line of text under the chosen picture, that starts with [IMG] into the body of your post.

Easy peasy!

Sandyas:

There are some fine points as well, about file size and so on. Suggest you look at a recent thread (on page 2 of the Garden Gallery now) called "Attention Gwen re posting photos", in which these helpful folks explained it all to me when I joined!

Here's my T's
The first is just a tanacetum, a self seeder that I've come to love. I find it has a very long bloom period, and I just dig up the seedlings and transplant where ever I feel I can use a clump.

Donna, I can only hope my trolius gets half as lovely as yours. This is only its second winter.
I'm envious of all the tiarellas.
Lots of lovely tulips shown also.
