Some backyard fireworks....

Have you ever seen lilies this big? These are in our neighbor's yard, and they're about 8 feet tall. Beautiful beautiful plants!




Yesterday they brought us some of their giant yellow lilies, which Mrs. TN now has in a vase on our deck


And I know I posted some of these before, the container competition Mrs. TN and I are having and which she's winning, hands down. I already threw in the towel. Here's hers, freshly planted the 25th of May.


And here it is yesterday



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

I'm not sure I've ever really seen pink lilies before?? I must have, but I can't remember when; all I think of when I think "lily" is Easter lily. But you can really see why day lilies are called lilies, when you compare them to these. The flowers do look very similar.

Incidentally, does anyone else have trouble spelling "lilies"? I never know if it is one "l' or two, and in typescript, the l's and i's run together so it looks wrong no matter what.

The missus' flowers look lovely. She has a way with plants, I think.

TN. I have (seen them that tall-0-in my front flower bed which is full of iris, daffodils, crocosmia, day lilies and several other types of 'real' lilies--a couple of miscellaneous small lilies (orange, taxi cab yellow and red) and some Oriental lilies (which is what I suspect your neighbors are). This year has been kind of a dud for the oriental lilies--which are usually at least six feet tall. I started out with one plant (from a bag, which I forgot to plant when I should have, that contained three root masses) Only one survived and while it did bloom that first year it was only one plant and it up up only one stem that painfully grew a total of three buds which turned out to be incredibly fragrant and quite beautiful--creamy white with a shaded pink throat. That was about 5 years ago and every year they have come back in greater numbers and have spread to a sizable patch--except for this year and judging by this particular lily and some of the other things that I grow which have specific bloom times I think that something about our weather through the winter took it's toll.

The daffodils and the tall beaded iris were the only things that bloomed on their normal schedule and were their normal size.

That's not really true--the day lilies started blooming on schedule and all of them from the giant bright yellow ones down to the small Stella del Oro's (they are butter yellow) and everything in between are doing what they usually do.

But my hosta's with two exceptions (and those are the ones that generally are the last to send up bloom stalks and have not done so yet.)

Everything else from medium to huge have been about a whole month earlier to send up blooms--and are now in full flower--at about the time they normally are just barely producing bloom stalks.

The big Oriental lily is about half the size it normal attains and has only 6 bloom stalks total for all of the total plants--much smaller than usual and much earlier than usual and far fewer buds per stalk.

The fuchsias on the other hand are blooming their heads off--lavishly is the only really descriptive term--and that was even with our couple of days of high temperatures which will usually put a delay in bud setting for fuchsias.

It's been really weird around here--including the geraniums that decided to survive the winter and are now starting to bloom. I also have violas (which I love because they are indestructible) are all over the place--they self seed like mad things (including in the cracks in the cement in the driveway).

And as a finale' for the weird things happening in my garden--chrysanthemums which grow and set buds and flower according to what type they are and the length of daylight hours have not only set buds (normally they do this in late August and start blooming in September and continue into October.) but are blooming now--or at least the biggest, oldest one is.

Mel--I have a whole lot of problems spelling lily to say nothing of lillies where those i's and ll run together. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

And lilies come in a huge variety of colors, sizes and even to some degree in shapes (and they are not at all related to day lilies--which also come in an equally huge variety of color, combination of colors and sizes but not in what the flowers look like).

Ah, the cloud cover finally is thinning and going away--I'll take a nap to celebrate.

Mel? Have you been practicing for that contest (now I can't think of it's name)--but they have it every year--it's named after the writer whose books usually led off with a description something like this" It was a dark and interminable nightfall with pouring rain, thunder, lightening and huge branches falling to the sodden ground and she awoke trembling with the nose of distruction and chaos all around.

Ahh, "The Bulwer Lyntton Fiction Contest (where www means Welcome Wretched Writers) "

I don't think I could even begin to compete. Here are the 2019 winners:

Winner:
"Space Fleet Commander Brad Brad sat in silence, surrounded by a slowly dissipating cloud of smoke, maintaining the same forlorn frown that had been fixed upon his face since hed accidentally destroyed the phenomenon known as time, thirteen inches ago."
Maxwell Archer


Grand Panjandrum's Special Award:
"Emile Zola wandered the dank and soggy streets of a gloomy Parisian night, the injustice of the Dreyfus affair weighing on him like a thousand baguettes, dreaming of some massage or therapy to relieve the tension and pain in his aching shoulders and back, and then suddenly he thought of his Italian friends and their newly invented warm water bath with air jets and he rapturously exclaimed that oft misquoted declaration "Jacuzzi!""
Robert R Moore


You have to admit that I have a long way to go. But maybe if I continue to practice by posting here, next year would be a possibility. Anyway, I've missed the June 30th cutoff date for this year.

Nice little drizzle of rain and light show going on here.

Love it!

I've never been scared of thunderstorms. Has anyone else not been scared of thunder storms?

Can you tell I am bored on a Friday night?

Landscape Lighting Frontyard Completed

Been working on overhaul of front landscape lighting to supplement the block project. Finished today after 3-days of solid work. Replaced many floods with bollard walkway lights, etc. All lights are LED, low voltage (12VAC). Since these pics, reduced wattage on right gate flood to reduce glare. Sky was nice with a huge moon out tonight.

Next have to o/h backyard pool lights, but not this weekend due to 100F both Sat and Sunday. Have a computer to build for a friend's MIL.


Front Landscape Lighting Completed!




Front Walkway Steps




Drive Walkway

(Look close behind small island is Raccoon trap)

Good rest tonight after lots of bending over in hot weather...

"Space Fleet Commander Brad Brad sat in silence, surrounded by a slowly dissipating cloud of smoke, maintaining the same forlorn frown that had been fixed upon his face since hed accidentally destroyed the phenomenon known as time, thirteen inches ago."
Maxwell Archer


Grand Panjandrum's Special Award:
"Emile Zola wandered the dank and soggy streets of a gloomy Parisian night, the injustice of the Dreyfus affair weighing on him like a thousand baguettes, dreaming of some massage or therapy to relieve the tension and pain in his aching shoulders and back, and then suddenly he thought of his Italian friends and their newly invented warm water bath with air jets and he rapturously exclaimed that oft misquoted declaration "Jacuzzi!""
Robert R Moore


You have to admit that I have a long way to go. But maybe if I continue to practice by posting here, next year would be a possibility. Anyway, I've missed the June 30th cutoff date for this year.
LOL! Not even with my best run on sentences can I match any of the winners quotations. I seriously doubt that I know enough adverbs and adjectives.

Thank you for remembering the actual name of the Contest.

Pretty spectacular lighting effects. Actually your whole summer project out front has turned out VERY well. Good word play on Eva too--"This boot is made for walking...."

You rock SpocksDad

Shoot I was just noticing yesterday as I was supervising the landscaper working on the yard yesterday that our crepe myrtles are in full bloom and look great to spite those giant grasshoppers that visited several months ago yet the flowers continue to bloom I think thats just awesome.
Nature finds a way.
I dig plants.
Hang on as I plan to go take a picture as proof of these myrtles.
Hang on .....K?
On my second cup of coffee can you tell that I am on my second cup of coffee........well......catch up.....?

Thanks, LaDi!

DW's main contribution was in support, feeding and keeping bored Dobes occupied while I worked. (remember fingernails...) Then final DW signoff was done last night after dark when pictures taken, when rounds made of project.

Spock, unlike Eva doesn't really care to be tethered out front, rather likes helping me in backyard. (see video clip) Eva just LOVES snooping in front of house. I'm slowing succeeding in getting her NOT to bark at every passerby and feral cat that saunters by yard (like she does inside, at window). ("Get off my street & stay outta my face- keep on movin" in dog speak)

This year has been kind of a dud for the oriental lilies--which are usually at least six feet tall. I started out with one plant (from a bag, which I forgot to plant when I should have, that contained three root masses) Only one survived and while it did bloom that first year it was only one plant and it up up only one stem that painfully grew a total of three buds which turned out to be incredibly fragrant and quite beautiful--creamy white with a shaded pink throat. That was about 5 years ago and every year they have come back in greater numbers and have spread to a sizable patch--except for this year and judging by this particular lily and some of the other things that I grow which have specific bloom times I think that something about our weather through the winter took it's toll.
ABTLH
Crocosmia...we planted about 25 bulbs this spring and they've come up but on a few of the plants, some of the leaves are turning brown. I've done some reading and come across everything from pests to too much or not enough water. Maybe it's normal to have a few brown leaves, no idea. Have you seen that with yours? Ours do get a LOT of sun throughout the day and we water once a day.

Next have to o/h backyard pool lights, but not this weekend due to 100F both Sat and Sunday. Have a computer to build for a friend's MIL.

Good rest tonight after lots of bending over in hot weather...
Everything looks great, SD. Those lights lining your walkways, I take it they're not your usual solar LEDs? So you had to run wiring along the walkways?

Little Trevor is 15.5 y/o & Loves his Papa - got them big beautiful eyes, of happiness.

PS - look close / them some sockies, in the photo Meow Meow

TrevorBigEyes by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

One of Beau favorite design elements of sons Basement Reno...
- was moving closet and making one that works better / keeping TV wall, nice & wide
- the cedar board ceiling adds a nice aroma (like a Blanket box)
- and top right side will allow for future AC Freon line & new water Line to outside wall
- without dropping drywall ceiling, in the main room
- finally, the small cedar door @ the end...hides the ugly 100 Amp Electrical Panel
- and sons 2x4 ft. steel workbench, will fit in there...for few tools & paint cans & stuff
- 2 holes in drywall, was patched up on Friday / for access to mount Barn Door track,
on other side of wall

ALSbasement_closetCedar by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

Bottom 20" of Furnace Room doorway - was prepared with plywood, instead of drywall.
- because the original 2x4 studs warped on a bad angle...and drywall was too weak to hold screws, on little support
- now the wood ply, also held the metal corner bead very well
- and the carpenter had wood to air pin nail baseboard trim in position
^^ The inside Jam transition from plaster board to painted plywood...is seamless.

ALSbasement_doorJamRepair by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

Two hallways had lower drywall removed (after flood) - bottom 20 inches.
- all patched up and leveled perfectly...one would never know / repairs ever made

^^ Larry too good @ this stuff...but it was Fun, using some old hand skills & solving Reno problems.

ALSbasement_hallRepair by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

The Ugly basement bathroom, once had a white ceramic tile floor.
- but leaving it, would screw up the transition under the door jam
- and the crap tile portion would still be seen / once the bathroom door was closed
- so all floor time removed, with a sledge hammer & masonry chisel / glue removed via Oscillating Saw blade
- once gone, cement floor exposed a 3/4" drop in middle
- and corrected with self-leveling compound / now the PVC Floor sits flat & doesn't squeak

The bottom 4" of room drywall got wet damaged from flood & removed / but shimmed up, 4-3/4 high Popular, covers it perfectly.
- the only area, that didn't need much Drywall work

BabyBear picked out a new vanity to, looks real nice with new taps & 1 piece counter
Top & sink...a updated, clean look.
