Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just some update pics!

Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f10

I don't know what these are, but I do like them because of the cute, small white flowers.
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f11

Hostas growing in nicely, and the balloon flowers (in front) starting to grow in too!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f12

Irises from Jenn that she divided up from her plant last year that are going to bloom! Most of the Irises that I got from Jenn has buds, so most of them will flower!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f13

Star Gazer Lillies are also growing in nicely! They've grown in a lot from last year because it wasn't this full last year!

We're going to have a lot of pretty irises, thanks to Jenn!

Just a couple of updated pics - we're working on a rock boarder in the lower retaining wall to help keep the wood chips from draining out when it rains.
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f15

Beautiful Irises in the background that Jenn gave us!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Home_f16

I still want to get a few phlox and pansies to fill in the gaps and i think we should be OK to let things just fill out over the seasons.

Unrelated but there's a house we pass when we walk that has a HUGE sign (i'm not even kidding it must be about 3 ft. long and 2 ft. high) that they have posted on some big stake that says "STOP A THIEF! REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY! SOMEONE IS STEALING ROCKS FROM OUR ROCK GARDEN!"

It makes me laugh that people actually steal rocks..?

I wish the housefront looked like that here. We can't grow anything due to the huge trees on the swale blocking all the sun.

If you have rocks about 4-5" big, and wanna give them away, we'll take them! We got some to see what it would look like and we'll need to get another 70-80 rocks to finish off the boarder!

I went to Arizona for the week and came back to all kinds of surprises in my retaining walls out front!

Day lillies have bloomed and looks like there will be lots more blooming!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Homefrontflowers010

Stargazer lillies (I think that's what they're called) all now have at least 3 buds and should be blooming soon!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Homefrontflowers009

Purple ballon flowers have bloomed, and the pink flowers have spread out ALOT since we planted them as a small plant to start last October. I love when the flowers open during the day and go to sleep at night. (They're closed in the picture since it's still 'early' morning for the flowers to open for the day.
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Homefrontflowers008

My MIL also came for a visit while I was in Arizona over the weekend and decided to fill in the gaps with other flowering plants and to give the soil another feeding of compost to help them along!
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Homefrontflowers007

Eventually, we will finish the rock boarder along the edge to help the mulch from running off when it rains.
Claudia's home front 2012 - Page 2 Homefrontflowers006

...and this big poofy plant was just the size of a softball last October when we first planted it!

Didn't know until MIL left yesterday that she also bought a couple of starter herb plants and planted them! So I also have basil and cilantro and something else that I can't easily identify - and hubby forgot what it is!

When MIL planted all these bulbs last Fall, she moved some of the lillies we already had planted and wondered where she put them....well, I eventually found them, and yesterday, I surprised to see this!:

The red lillies around the base of the tree in front of the house has a lot of buds and I can wait for them to pop open! But they all are at least 2x as tall as they were last year! I think MIL moved some of the red ones in the retaining walls in the front of the house and put them around the base of the tree because it looks like they multiplied! I got these bulbs from Costco!

I got a red lilly today!

And since I have several white and pink ones, I thought I'd put a couple on the table...in a Lucky Buddah beer bottle! Razz

We keep the coasters on the dining table and someone came over and commented on them and said, 'Those are cool coasters!' Smile

I love looking at these landscaping threads! The lilies are beautiful! My mom has a green thumb and it skipped a generation cause I am clueless with planting flowers. I would like to learn some day so my house can look as nice as what you all are doing with your landscaping.

I do generally pay attention to detail... Cool

I'm glad you guys like them, they're some of the cooler products that got released for the centennial of naval aviation.
