What a pretty Dahlia! I haven't found any good deals around here yet, but believe me I'm looking :) That Lily is so pretty and looks like it smells delicious.
We don't get snakes around here, which is fine with me. I grew up very close to where I live now and there used to be all sorts of garter snakes, but guess all the building they've done chased them out.


Great shots. I really like the image of the oriental lily. That is one I'd love to grow in my garden.


Great finds Kathleen, which prices like that who could blame you! ;) No plant shopping here, it's just too hot to even look. :( Ewww...that snake is a big one, that would freak me out!


Eeeewww, snakes are something I simply cannot tolerate!!!

I haven't had time to visit many end of season plant sales. Did get two coreopsis for $1, pleased with those. Like you, my garden is way over crowded. Need to move so much stuff and not looking forward to it.

Is the swamp milkweed for your pond? My Dad had one a few years ago, lovely blooms.


I'm still broke from the spring truckloads of plants I hauled in here. So much for sales - hehehe.
That Lily is gorgeous - the snake not so much. But good that they eat pests. But I got chills when you spoke of removing him. EEeeeewwwwwwwww

I am so envious about not being able to buy plants at that sale....but maybe that is a good thing for my pocketbook ;-)

Cool snake, I can only imagine how many pests he will take care of in the garden :-)

It sounds like you got some great plant deals. I'm always eyeing up new sections of the yard for new garden beds, but it doesn't take long as I usually expand in small sections.

Your pink lily is pretty, and would coordinate with so many plants. I inherited some bright orange ones that I've never been able to find the right place for.

That snake has some beautiful markings. He must be finding a lot of food in your garden to get to that size.


Isn't the veronicastrum scrumptious! I saw a small garter snake in the garden~They eat worms, I would love a king snake to move in and take out those chipmunks! gail
