ALPHABET SOUP ~~ XYZ

Postby Eeyore » Mar 06, 2009 1:27 am

It's hard to believe we are at the end already. Time to make the final additions to the 2009 edition of the soup and to get your wish lists finalized.

I have enjoyed seeing all the wonderful gardens and I am looking forward to seeing lots of photos in the next few months as the gardens start to thaw. Also thanks to Lyn and Kelly for facilitating this year soup.

For Z
Zebra Grass I just moved it to this spot last spring and I think it likes it better here than where it was.

and zinnias. I love zinnias and I just have to plant multiple varieties each year. It was hard to choose which photo, as I also love taking photos of them.

The SOUP has been amazing this year! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to add their ingredients!

Have only two pics to post,,it's what I call Ying Yang or my "Zen" thing.

Betty, I too had Yarrow but it needs to be in a large patch in a large garden such as yours in order to make a showing. So mine has been replaced with Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’. I also moved a Zebra grass to a sunnier location and it’s doing much better.

Love the zinnias but took a rest from them this past year.

Puff, do they sing ‘Puff the magic dragon’ to you. You is a bootiful pussy cat.

Thank you Lyn and Kelly for hosting this year's ABC, you did a great job.

And thanks to all the participants for their beautiful, colourful, and sometimes funny submissions.

Hosting the soup has been fun. I can see why Patty and Savona enjoy it so much.

I only have one. An Italian Zucchini flower. This plant grew huge, had tons of flowers, but not one fruit. Next time I'll try two, if I have the space.
