Randall, those are fantastic!  They  look like a heritage variety called "Accent".  We picked up rhizomes that were illegally dumped in a local dog park, and they grew into plants that look a lot like yours.

Very nice!

Chris, I'm guess the other flowers are phlox, but with my bad eyes, who knows?

Spud, those pussy willows root so easily.  Deer chewed on them a little but have mostly left them alone.  We are hoping for a hedge for some privacy along that roadside.  With the willow cuttings, it was free.  They grow fast.

Been posting a bit less lately.   Tired, working hard, and some gardening too.  Really relish the comments here.  They keep me going.  Thank you all!

They're beautiful, Randall! And what are the pink flowers - honesty?

Daniel: I gotta prove I "grow" irises, too! Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Enjoy your gardens.

Daniel, reading about Ning growing pussy-willows made me nostalgic for my youth.

We played by the snake river a lot, and there were many pussy-willows there.  I loved the little furry catkins, and dad taught us how to make whistles with the branches.

Glad to read they are easy to grow.

I hear ya, King. I'm having the same problems. And my dog makes things worse by digging after them.

Enjoying chives, cilantro, and, of course, asparagus!! Strawberries next.

For some reason, these turned out very nice this year.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 24, 2014 at 3:08pm

Spud, keep us posted on its progress. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 24, 2014 at 3:04pm

Thanks Joan.  Unwinding the roots is something that I've heard before, but had forgotten.  I might have remembered it when I went to plant it and saw the winding roots.
