Can you believe that it the last weekend of August?
Where has the summer gone?
School is back in session for a new year. The children
must really think summer has flown. I remember not
wanting to go back to school and seeing the summer end.
With even the added extra two to three weeks we had in
the olden days of school being let out in May and not going
back until after Labor Day it still just flew by.
Trust me, the older you get the faster the days seem to go by
for some reason.
Today is Fertilizer Friday sponsored by Tootsie over
at Tootsie Time. Time to Flaunt Your Flowers.
Mine are getting fewer and fewer to flaunt these days.
So go over and join us in flaunting your flowers while they
are still blooming. Although I believe that Tootsie's flowers
are always in bloom ;-)
Some of the reliable blooms that are continuing to show
off some blooms yet are:
Old reliable " Crimson Bouquet' Roses.
Thank goodness they will continue until the frost
takes them. And also the Knockout Roses.
My baby "Laura' Phlox has put on some single blooms
since it was trimmed of the spent blooms.
And it still smells just as heavenly.
"Queen Charlotte' Anemone is in her glory now
and blooming up a show.
'Edinburgh' Dalhia is still blooming.
Helitope ' Marine'
Gaillardia 'Burgundy' or Blanket Flower.
(Note to self: Needs divided and moved.)
Million Bells or Calibrachoa.
White Wave Petunia and the silly triple bloom petunia is
Even "Stella d' Oro' Lily is getting a few late season blooms.
And of course there are always plenty of weeds!
And Green Brier's
And Cockle-burr's in the Hocking Hill's.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
