I am pleased to tell you how much I enjoy everybody else's plantings...the Soup is better than all the gardening magazines, or catalogues.

A NOID succulent...and NINE allium. The 9th IS there, in behind, low down. I finally got more than FIVE.

There are some lovely Ns here....

Sharon, your Narcissi are incredible. Fabulous variation there. ( I love the Tabby cat shot too, that cropped up first). And very clever with the Nectaroscordum switcheroo there, it pays to keep abreast of the name changes for soup....

Laura, I am guess eggshell blue - sky blue is a favorite color of yours in the garden, I share that with you.

Lyn your Nelly AND your Nettie are lovely.

Dan that pale pink Nymphaea is gorgeous, where ever did you get a pink one, or am I out to lunch?

Reen Beautiful Delphiniums there, thats really a gorgeous one next the the steps.

Clyde, your new bed with the old fashioned western style fence is really lovely. I am admiring your soil and I just know that plants growing up around that fence are going to look wonderful. Also, the Niobe clematis an dthe Neal Barrey daylilies are gorgeous. Especially the lily.

Clara, love the Nepeta, just comparing it to Sharons and to mine Im realizing how much variation there is in this genus.

Abbey, hats off re birdhouse, with a plant, thats pretty cool! Love YOUR Nelly Moser as well. I have managed to grow ONE clematis (well two, if you include the native one here, which I am not in charge of, obvi.)

Liz, I counted EIGHT, but they are wonderful, and you NOID succulent is INCREDIBLE. I had one of those I am pretty sure, and it never looked as healthy as that.

So far so good, soupnikis.
Oy!

So many nifty N's.. A lot to take in and playing catch up on computer as freezing rain on wireless antenna results in no signal getting through ice. Finally today the temperature rose enough to melt it off. I see some nice Nepeta here and I am going to add mine as well. Not sure of the variety but it does spread easily.

I have 2 other ninebarks (diablo & coppertina) that have much more colourful foliage as well as blooms but neither bloom as profusely as this plain ninebark.

Each year I have to plant nasturiums just because I always have.

Lucky you,,my Hubby also is a great help in the garden :-)

Some Daylilies just need longer to multiply, no problem for not sharing.

Pink is a fairly common colour of Nymphaea, and have quite a few cultivars of them. I am wondering if you are thinking of Nelumbo (lotus) as I only have 2 cultivars in that colour range. I think I have posted pics of them in the past with the tropical waterlilies.
Just dug out and will be finishing a new pond that was started last fall, and have ordered quite a few new cultivars of both that will be gracing this one this coming season
Did find another new pic of another pink nymphaea

Ns are not plentiful here, it seems.
Here's my new ninebark in its second year. The first season it was covered in mildew, but last year it was fine.

Walker's Low nepeta is new for me and appears to be very vigorous.

Sharon...I really like the Nectaroscordum siculum. I'll have to check if I can grow it here.

My N...Netty's Pride and Night Flyer Asiatics...first year for both.

Hmmmm, well now I am convinced that what I have is NOT Netty's Pride.
