Fertilizer Friday -May 7, 2010

TGIF!!!! I don't know about ya'll, but I am thrilled tomorrow is FRIDAY! That means it is time to flaunt our flowers! Head over to Tootsie's place to flaunt your flowers or to check out what everyone is flaunting.



This was supposed to be my post last week for FF, but hey, better late than never!

This is a climbing rose I bought last year at Big Lots for $3!!! The blooms are tiny, about the size of a quarter. It is growing on my arbor, and finally starting to cover it.
This is a White Justicia, from The Brown's. Funny story....I actually bought a White Justicia from the flea market, and it died!!!! Prior to it dying, I took a cutting of it to Mr. Brown, and he rooted it. He rooted me another one, as well as one for himself. So this one is the cutting he rooted for me! It is about 3 feet tall right now, and soon will be blooming. I also have a pink Justicia.


Woodland Phlox


Sapphire Sage (it is actually blooming now!)


A few of my roses. I don't know how I wound up with only pink and red roses, but I did. I am working on fixing that! I recently took cuttings from 9 different roses to Mr. Brown so he can root them for me! LOL!!!! I will have a variety of colors soon!


Purple Coneflower is loaded with buds, but this was the first bloom. It is a wasn't a full bloom, but it was better than nothing!


Hot Lips Fuschia


One of the many Siberian Irises. I have yet to buy an iris! Every iris I have was either found at an old homeplace, came from my Grandmother or Mrs. Brown! Those are the best kind of flowers

The blueberry bush is loaded with berries! I need to cover it before the birds get to them.


Butterfly Bush is beginning to fill out

Dianthus, always a good one for me!

And last...but not least, Clematis and Hydrangea buds. The hydrangeas are loaded with buds and will be blooming any day now!

I just recieved a comment from Lona at A Hocking Hills Garden that read, "HELP!!!". Uh oh...this can't be good! Let me go see what Bilbo has done now!!!!

Darla said...

You got it going on in the garden DP!! Your photos are looking fantastic..

Ginger said...

Great blueberry photo - that's a tough shot to get!

Nezzy said...

I'm always very envious of your beautiful pictures, your flowers a fabulous. That first little rose is so precious, I want to call it a fairy rose.

Now, get this...we have had 70-80 degree weather. In fact it's in the 70's right now but a cold front is movin' in bringing temps in the 30's and days of rain. This is southern Missouri for goodness sake and May! I sure hope my bloomers don't get frostbit!

You have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful Mother's Day weekend sweetie!!!

Awesome roses and pinks and reds are great. The clematis has the prettiest color. Dianthus is beautiful too. Everything is popping at your place.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Good morning DP. Your roses are just gorgeous and so is the Dianthus. Such great photos of the clematis.
Bilbo took us on a whirlwind tour the yesterday that I will be posting soon. He sure has worn this old woman out LOL! I have had to threaten him a few times but he is coming around now to my way of thinking. LOL! It is a very good excuse to get really silly. LOL! I had him in one park the other night and another hiker saw him and we talked a little. She said her blog group had a traveling monkey LOL! I will stick with Bilbo.

I love the variety of flowers you have...your garden must be so lush.

What lovely photos! I enjoyed seeing the purple conehead, even if it was a partial bloom. My butterfly bushes are atleast a month away from flowering. I Can't wait until they do; they live up to their name!
