You have a lot of the same flowers as in my gardens: bleeding heart, iris, blue fescue, phlox, crabapple. What I don't have are the hens and chicks; my hot sunny yard would probably be ideal for them!

Nice job with the gardens and the photography. I especially like the pic of the swallowtail on lilac!

Lori, would you like to trade? I'll be gone next week, but feel free to contact me via email (can we do that?) and let me know what else you have! I've got lots of hens and chicks that should be thinned out!

Sounds good!

I've never traded before, but that's a great idea! I have been moving things around the last couple of weeks just looking for places to put things that I've thinned. I'll send you an email.

Very nice photos, Jessica. I especially like your Trilliums.

The plant you need an ID for (first page, with yellow flowers, next to forget-me-not photo) is Lamium galeobdolon aka Yellow Archangel. It's often grown as a houseplant, as well.

Your "what's this" on page 2 is sedum...possibly a variety of Sedum spurium.

Happy gardening!

wow, that's exactly it, the yellow archangel. I was told it may be dead nettle, or some vine that starts with a V. It's a spreading viny type plant that is a great groundcover in a shaded garden. Thanks so much for that positive ID!
