I so love the Sunday Garden Stroll. Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope someday to share as well.

What lovely things you have happening right now! That Rose of Sharon is gorgeous. I have never grown those.

I think the mystery flower is Campanula. I just planted a small variety of Campanula yesterday, but your Dad's looks like one of the larger ones.

Lovely!

Mom Unplugged, you must be right. I remember him calling it that now too. Thanks!

HI! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for including me in your post -- I'm flattered!

You've got lovely photos here, I'm looking forward to exploring your blog.

I've always wanted to know what Rose of Sharon looked like (ever since Grapes of Wrath), but kept forgetting to look it up. I'm working on my garden stroll post photos now, so I'll put up a link pretty soon.

By the way, there is an article in the current Brain, Child that totally made me think of you. It's called "Mind the (Achievement) Gap," by Vera Landry, and it deals with issues of achievement in the context of race and society. If you can't get a hold of a copy of the zine, let me know, and I'll be happy to send you mine after I've finished reading it.

Thank you! What a nice idea (I just found your blog via Unplug Your Kids).

P.S. I knew I couldn't afford to buy any more plants, but I got a catalog with a 25 dollar coupon, risk free. So, I ordered some cyclamen. I ended up paying $1.90 total (after shipping). Hurrah!

I love the clematis!
Of course I don't mind you linking to me!
As for ants, in the house I wash surfaces with Borax and water. NOt sure how that would work in the garden. http://www.yardener.com/SolutionsToAntProblems.html
Might have something you are looking for. Be cautious though. Ants are needed for some plants. (peonies for one) Hope that helps!
