    Sandy, I’ve seen those Lilies called Orange Art in catalogs.  But sometimes they will be different names in different catalogs.

    What a wonderful tour of your trip to Wisconsin. It looks like you had some wonderful memories to share with us “stay-at-homes”. Whenever we used to travel we would always try to go to the botanical gardens in the area. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.

    Charlene,  thank you for sharing your beautiful trip, it was so much fun to read each picture, you did a wonderful job.

    No I’m not a packer fan, but then I don’t watch much football.

    Guess I missed this yesterday, Charlene.  It would have been a shame had I not seen it at all.  What a lovely experience you had with Julie!  I’m so glad you took us along for the ride.  It did feel as if we were there with you all.

    We are Packer fans at our house so the reference to our favorite football franchise was not lost on me!  I also loved the rainbow garden.  Never thought about doing that before.  Hmmm …  The “butterfly” exhibit was such a great idea also.  I’d never be able to fashion the shape of a butterfly to do it myself, but it does set my brain to thinking about other shapes I might find to plant in.

    Thanks for sharing your pics and memories!

    Charlene, how I wish we’d been with you in person!  Thank you for thinking of us and bringing us along in thought.

    That colouful coleus reminded me of the Joseph’s coat amaranthus that you shared seeds with me.  How very pretty!  I wish I had a coleus just like it.

    What a busy day you and the others had.  I was exhausted after just reading of your adventures.  LOL  The burger sounded goo-od!  Yum.

    Julie sounds like a wonderful hostess.  And thanks to her we all enjoyed your visit together.  :D

    Thanks for posting, Charlene.  It’s always fun to read your little novellas.  That salesman does sound like me.  I had a lady tell me today that she was giving us her funeral order because of the time I took with her, explaining what I would do, and what flowers I would use to give them the look they wanted.  I may not get to do the order, though, as it has to be delivered on Friday, and I don’t go back to work till then.  I did tell some of the others what it was, and I did save the flowers for the order.

    Charlene, good job setting this all up.  You sure got a good picture of that hummingbird at my feeder out front..LOL.  He likes to pose for pictures, and he always checks to see how much sugar water is left inside the the feeder…LOL.  When it gets low he flies up to me and lets me know his feeder is getting empty.  Smarty pants bird.

    Thank you Charlene for coming and thanks for the memories.  I hope one day to have another get together here.  We have a lovely area for camping and plenty of things to see and do.  However, my favorite thing is to watch my flowers grow…LOL  Thanks for sharing.
