Fertlizer Friday Blooms



I am joining in the fun today with Tootsie at "Tootsie Time" in
"Fertilizer Friday" to show some of the things that are in
bloom now around the garden.
I use Miracle Grow on my plants by using their container
for liquid fertilizer that attaches to the garden house.
I also use a slow release granule type fertilizer.
This year I added compost to my container pots and I
can see such a difference in the plants that I started from seed.
They are going to be much healthier and larger.

Around the yard.



Clustered Bell Flowers and White Achillea.




Sweet Caroline Purple Ipomea Potato Vine.




Lantana




The Pansies that I just hate to uproot.




The first bloom on the Morning Glory Bush ' Convolvulus'
grown from seeds.




A few Roses are still blooming.










Regatta Rose Lobelia





Lolipop Lily



Blue Hill Salvia




Sweet Peas






Crown Vetch



Honeysuckle



White Balloon Flower Campanula

Happy Fertilizer Friday and Happy Gardening!

Why don't I think to put compost in containers!!! Your plants look great. I'm not so happy mith the bush morning glories I started from seed. Love the flowers, (same as yours) the stems look scraggly on mine. Any tips?

Welcome to FF!! Your garden is just beautiful! Love that "shoe nest" too!! There is no way I would pull the pansies either - they are so pretty. Everything look so pretty.

Beautiful Blooms! I did not know that honeysuckle vines comes in white with yellow how pretty they are! I love the white campanulas too. Happy FF!

I love those white campanulas! The cream coloured buds make a nice contrast to the pure white flowers.

Lona, your garden is simply gorgeous! My new perennial bed is still looking pretty sparse, but hope it will fill in nicely by next season.

Great idea to add compost in containers. I love the rose and salvia combination. Those pansies really are doing great still. Mine are long gone.

How did I miss this?
Beautiful flowers! I love the old coffee pot there in the flowerbed too! I have one also(-: My husband says that the Scout Leaders brewed coffee in those things until it was black as tar! Yikes. Not my kind of coffee!!!LOL
