Forgot the type of lilies these are? Anyone know?
I think it was some sort of mixture in a bag from one of the box stores...Blooming on my patio today.

Muddy, do you mean the allium stem is dry? wow...don't have a clue about your lilies but they sure are pretty.

As for the fennel, yes, it's doing right...going to seed won't hurt it, but you will have fennel popping up everywhere next year. Unless it's in a bad spot, I just leave the volunteers for the butterflies...and so far, haven't seen a single b'fly cat on the fennel this year. I'm hoping for extended sunshine so the b'flies can do their thing and lay some eggs.

That's too many "tars" IMHO Big Grin

Muddy, Love the allium. The garden center here in town spray paints theres' after they go to seed like that.
Also, an article about town that sued homeowner (think it was NY, not sure) for flower tire planters.....Ludicrous! Crazy world we live in today...

Ve, Yes the allium is dry.

I do love the fanciful look of the feathery fennel
in my beds...maybe find a good use for it. I do hope I get some volunteers.

Jm, Yep I might plastic coat it Just for fun.
About the tires> My thoughts> Love creative people & looks like she does a nice job with them. They are probably not right in some places. I'm not sure they would swing in my development. Perhaps something else could be done with them?

Hi Owie....Thanks

Don't always have time to address each reply but
read & love all of them.

Your pics are great as usual and your flowers are pretty.

I don't care for any tires in any yards, painted or not. Even me, with the "country" yard and other recycled materials being used...tires just look tacky to me! And the same goes for the iron beds that a lot of folks made "flower" beds out of....some still around this area.

I saw some tires that had been spray painted and then hung on the end of a building. Plants had been put in them so they would trail out and down. Looked neat.
