I planted 2 'Copper Rose ' Verbascum this year, but they were small and it looks like only one is going to have a small bloom this year. I had a 'Southern Charm' one but it died after the third year. Several years ago I had a yellow biennial one with huge fuzzy leaves and flowering stems that got almost 5 feet tall. It was gorgeous, but I forgot to get seeds from it.

I'm REALLY excited that my Bear's Breeches is going to bloom again this year. It has 3 stalks coming up in the middle. It's only bloomed once since I planted it.

Yep...He made them...painted them AND the plants that were in front of them.I EARNED them.They were from his garage roof.I removed the metal& pulled LOTS of nails& sweated buckets.It was July.I think I got blisters too in that bargin.

The lattice is the plastic stuff the thicker one.We had hoped it was dog proff.....Its not nephew proof.one section has a hole.

 -

Hole is below leaf,beside frog.A wagaon done it,but they say no.but I KNOW better [teacher]

I'm very close to cutting my timber on that sun star bed and doing my bed myself.I gotta mow tomorrow though.I fished today so lost time there.was too hot when got done fishing& didn't catch squat.But made curtains kinda(stitched& tacked to door with thumb tacks)
