    Welcome to our Wednesday picture thread. Everyone is invited to post the picture or pictures of their choice.

    I had planned on posting a picture of my Kousa Dogwood today but then I took this picture and it just cried out to be posted today. lol This is where the fragrance on my back steps comes from.

    How nice Steve.  At first glance I thought those Dianthus were in a trash can till I looked closer.  LOL

    I have no idea why the plants are called Ice Plant.  Maybe somebody else will know.

    Didn’t you get a plant called a Flowering Fern?  (A free gift, maybe?)

    I ordered mine from Michigan Bulb & this is what they look like when they bloom.

    Butterflu22…..welcome and we would love to see your photos and have you participate.  You need to use a host site to share pictures here.  Many use photobucket or Tinypics.  I use Picasa web.  You transfer from your phone to the host site and can then share them here.

    Snow, you just gave me an idea.  Plant BH with the Solomon’s Seal.  Mine look lonely by themselves under a tree but those two look good together.

    Thank you Charlene for the information on how to download. My oldest daughter tried to help me with it and explained that it’s an app that’s needed. I’m such a chicken when it comes to getting any apps. Lol! Thanks also snowwolf for welcoming me.

    Ili Z.9 I’m sorry. I tried several times today trying to understand how to use Picasa. Seems like I’ll never figure it out. Kept saying “can’t find album list” then ” having trouble creating album.” Sigh!

    I cannot remember if I have posted this one or not so I am going to do it (again maybe).  It produced seeds last year but I did not know how to get the seeds ready to plant until I found help on the internet. Got to get them cold. Maybe this year I will start the process of trying to grow some from the big seeds it makes
