and my apology for forgetting! I am sorry.

I have nothing but some shabby Yellow lilies, so will leave it up to you folks to astound me.

On your mark, get set...GO!

Yellow prevails with my first 2 selections, but I have a fitting ingredient for Zed, I think.
In the first the clump of yellow yarrow is attempting to swallow up the whole bed. In my defense, I didn't know the pansy in the front was also going to be yellow.
The second is just a simple yellow lily.
The third was one of my best purchases of the season, Alstromeria, Zavina.

I don't know why you would call those lilies shabby, Liz. They look pretty nice to me!

Northpine, the lilies were photographed on their last legs, in rain, alas. The perfume tho, that is lovely for this Lily.

And what a magnificent display of Yarrow you got! Mine prefers to lie on the ground.

Your Alstromeria Zavina is so very different from the kind I am used to! I think I need me some like yours!

Am impressed with the zigzag fence, K...very GOOD...love zigzag fences. And do you get flowers with your Yucca?

Marie, that Alstromeria Zavina is very pretty, I must keep an eye out for that one.
I am going to post some Yarrow as well.

I really loved these but hubby said they tasted funny,I think he just was put off by a non-red tomato.

It is great to have plants in the garden that you can enjoy at the table,or raw like B likes them.And that also attract favorite visitors.

Liz...in the 2 years that I have had it, I have not had flowers on my Yucca. But I am not without hope! besides...it is a lovely plant without the flowers!
