Algis, Very artistic. Many of those wildflowers are 'foreign' to me. c.i.

Okay, I've added the photo of the Union Oyster House that was taken about 15 years ago. I'm sure the facade has not changed. c.i.

It's lily season here now, and once again I fancy myself as the lily breeder. Pollinating such perennials such as tulips, irises, and lilies is part and parcel Of gardening pleasure. This year,however, I decided to be a bit more methodical, thanks in part to the versatility of the digital camera to furnish images which are easily stored in either the computer or on disk along with journal entries.

Pollinating lily "Citronella"from the white Martagon is shown here. The martagon has finished blooming ,so I saved a few,about half-dozen or so, anthers in a safe place (a Zip disk plastic jewel case) until today.

Depending on how successful this effort will be, I hope to have an illustrated
Log on the development of the consequent seedlings.

I intend to do the same with the tiger lily L. lancifolia, again using martagon pollen.
These three varieties are favorites of mine. The tiger is a couple of weeks away,however.

I have a butterfly garden out back with dillweed,zinnias,goldenrod,and asters. A single swallowtail flits among the trees around the house,and I believe it has made about a half dozen caterpillars. Dillweed hosts the larvae, and the zinnias and the field flowers should be in bloom to sustain the adults.

hello, neko. nice documentation you've got going.
I've started taking pix on the digital camera and uploading them to the computer. The next step is re-sizing them, popping them into a website that allows things to be linked here. I may get this done before the Mexican Hats are done!

Congratulations, eBeth! I and the others are waiting for you to show your garden. Will be glad to help with presenting your pictures.

My picture for today is uncropped,showing an apricot colored hybrid daylily, "Dollhouse" ,to show context of location. It,along with a hosta and white asters (as yet not blooming),hide spent tulips, at the edge of the dapple-shaded area under a flowering crabapple tree.

Later on I picked up a Peterson Field Guide, "Eastern Butterflies", at the local Chapters and determined that this one is known as a Question Mark.


http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0VQDhApMZdFA0gq0S4Ys1TMj6sw2E9*8lzj8pz8smB814OmXc6Rpc2VZ8VTXvtp75BQKylYwyth3JSRsQj6iPPqBKAhNaUNbgUSI5WVjlfNY7OD0u697ThXGLgzPjaJd5/neko%20nomad%2088a.jpg?dc=4675430783665706756Further perusing through my Peterson's revealed that the caterpillars in my dillweed patch are those of the Black Swallowtail; the consequent chrysalises (chrysalii ?) like that shown here,were also identified as such. Now I haven't noticed any black swallowtails lately, so at this point I'm not fully convinced as to the guide's accuracy,but since this chrysalis is located conveniently near the back door, I intend to keep close watch for further developments. The tension mounts.
P.S. (added July 20): I missed the emergence of the adult,and now I'm still not sure what kind it was. There was just an empty husk as of yesterday afternoon; it left as I was away from the house for the day. nn

You don't know it, c.i., but you led me to a great site to set up a photo album. I've been uploading and downloading for a couple of nights now. I'm going to try to post a pic of my garden from the early spring, when I thought nothing was going to come up, and then one from around July 1, when things looked a bit better. http://www.grovestreet.com/thumbnails/43/217743.jpg

the first pic shows the crocuses and scilla that were in the 'crossing fingers' pic and the tiny path that traverses my tiny front yard.

Neko - thanks for all your help in helping me figure out this whole process.
Now on to the garden about 6 - 8 weeks after the pic in the previous post.

http://www.grovestreet.com/thumbnails/54/217754.jpg

Things filled in very well! The path makes more sense once the lush green perennials 'pop'.

The yard is xeriscaped - that is - no watering.

In the first pic, you could see a tea kettle lying on its side in the yard.

Here it is again, in the company of heuchera, oriental poppy and a hosta.
