Not Pictures of Lily

More views of the tropical paradise that is Ohio. And I still haven't gotten to the Hibiscus or Mandevilla.










P.S. Thanks, S.C. Torch Lily, Kniphofia uvaria it is. Does anyone know what the blue-green plants with purple flowers on a stalk in the foreground are?

You mock, but isn't Chicago getting ready for increased tropical-style heat & humidity in the coming yrs.?

Kudos to you sir, for setting the story straight (read: deceiving the masses) about our beloved, beautiful state, so much more than abandoned rustpiles, doofus politicians & underachieving sports teams.

Getting ready???

Thundra- I thought I had left a comment last night, but don't see it... perhaps I left it on another post, or perhaps a dream post... beautiful fleurs. That rose looks like the rambler on the side of my house.

Jennifer, I don't see anything waiting in moderation, and the spam folder has the usual spam. You did send me an email though...

VS, I've been to Dayton...

I realized I had been in the middle of leaving a comment (email was sent first) when I was beckoned by someone else. I think I thought I'd get back to post it, but never did...
