I hope everyone is getting ready for the weekend
whether you go to see some fireworks, have a barbecue,
or just enjoy a long weekend catching up on projects or
enjoying the garden.
Today is Fertilizer Friday over at “Tootsie Time” so time
to “Flaunt Your Flowers”.
This has been a busy week around in the flowerbeds
and with some cooler temps it was a good week to take
a couple of afternoon hikes in the nearby parks.
Some of the flowers that are blooming now are:
Lavender Simplicity Roses are having another flush of blooms.
Little critters everywhere.
The new Gertrude Jekyll Rose has its first bloom.
The Adonis Tall Phlox smells so good and this Hummingbird
Moth is enjoying them.
Blue Chip Campanula Bellflower
The Black Eyed Susan’s are blooming from a packet of
wildflower seeds I tossed in the woodland bed near the
Echinacea Summer Sky is in bloom.
Becky Shasta Daisies are blooming in several of the beds
I planted them in.
The petunias in the planters are really growing fast
now. I am saving seeds from these Blue Ice if anyone
Some of the Fancy Dress petunias are starting
to bloom the way they appeared on the package.
This is the first year for this little Mimosa tree to bloom.
I was not expecting it to bloom for a couple of years yet
but it surprised me with a bunch of airy blooms.
Some Tiger Eye Marigolds are starting to bloom.
Thanks Robin for the seeds!
I seeded some Nicotinia from last years seeds which
were red and pink. This year the seeds produced some white
flowers. So for those of you I gave seeds to some of yours may
bloom white too.
The Rose Of Sharon bushes are loaded with blooms.
Now if I can keep the Japanese Beetles from eating holes
The Lambs Ear was cut back this week because of it
laying flat after all the rain storms. I am hoping it will
spread back up.
The Veronica Blue Wooly Speedwell is blooming but
it is not blooming as well as in other years so I added
some compost around its feet.
In the woodland bed the Mammoth Hosta’s are in bloom.
This is their second year so they are not giants yet.
This Ostrich fern is in the woodland bed also. I cannot
wait until it grows into a giant.
The hydrangeas are blooming all around the yard but
I will leave them for another posting day.
Finally Everyone Have a Safe Holiday
Weekend and Happy Gardening !!
Happy Fourth of July!!!!!
