Friday's Blooms

Burgundy Gaillardia Blanket Flower.
I believe this flower is changing its color or
reverting back because it is not blooming the
wonderful burgundy color and
is getting more yellow highlights on it.

White Achillea Yarrow

Flowering Shamrocks
These were some free bulbs that came with and order
for flowers. It has not bloomed yet but the foliage is
still lovely.

Pink Geraniums

Meet Pink 'Orchid Mist' double cascading Petunia's
that were grown from seeds this spring.
Its blooms are so big and fluffy.

Veronica Speedwell 'Red Fox'

She is new and just starting to bloom but its blooms
look more of a bright pink that red but maybe
the blooms will darken with age.

And of course it is Lily days.

I got the lilies in a bulk buy so I do not know the
names of these. If you recognize any please let me know.

Lantana with a little visitor.
And the last one is Purple Clustered Bellflower Campanula.

Today is Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time . To
see some more fabulous blooms hop on over and
take a look or join in on showing off your blooms.

Happy Gardening Everyone
And Have A Wonderful Weekend!

this is my first visit and i am glad i did. i love what you've got blooming in the garden. that first day lily is really beautiful. i have a thing for pentunia and love the 'orchid mist'. it is so great to grow anything from seed. i think it feels so rewarding. i really like the two colours on the shamrocks. looks like you are having a great summer so far...enjoy.

Jesikaren: I love the new petunia and will be saving the seeds for more next year.

Thanks Bren!

The lilies came in a mixed assortment that were planted last Fall. It is a surprise to see what the blooms will look like.The deers ate half of them off.

I love yarrow and keep planting it, but it annoys me when it comes back where I'm not expecting it too, hahaha I just bought 4 more yarrow plants yesterday that were marked down to 50% off. All your flowers are so lovely!
