Thanks all! And yeah, Secret, we have plenty of that! In fact today I was gonna make a little bonsai plant out of a maple tree that was growing through a crevice in a rock. It was the perfect specimen, til I went to pull it out, and lo and behold! There was poison ivy growing right next to it. The mission was aborted immediately!
Just remember leaves of three let it be,,,poison ivy (ich)
Oh Simmy, how cute! My husband has been reduced to a garden gnome. He would just LOVE that LOL! NOT! A fairy however, I have not seen yet. Oh wait, I take that back. I have had gay friends over!

SameOnes, I am with you on that! I just love spring! Even weeds are beautiful to me, as well. But not to my garden gnome, LOL. He pulls them all!
Yes, Bridget does have beautiful gardens. Every one has beautiful gardens, and I can't say that I have ever seen a ugly flower. Many weeds are even attractive to me. I just love all of it, the flowers, birds, sun; spring, coming out of the stark freeze of isolate winter. God! How I detest winter, but spring.................... I love spring.
After all, weeds are just misplaced wildflowers, right?
As far as posion ivy, yeah, I am highly allergic to it. Last year I got it really bad and had to be on steroids for 10 days as well. Bad stuff, I start to itch just thinking about it!

I have not quite gotten a handle on what perennials do well where I live yet. The first year I planted a lupine and it croaked mid summemr. The next year I planted a delphinium and it did great! It came back the next year and did great! This year it is no where to be found. I tried another lupine and it came nback this year. So I am keeping my fingers crossed it does okay.

Sunday morning when I was sitting on my deck sipping coffee and purusing the paper I saw this incredible flower! I am so excited! I hope it's blooming like crazy in August - I'll enter it in the fair - maybe get another ribbon.
