Today is Fertilizer Friday with our gal Glenda, alias
Tootsie, over at her blog “Tootsie Time” and I have got
nothing in bloom gardeners which can be a little embarrassing or downright infuriating, whichever your
mood is in on any given day.
So it is into the data base of blooms from Summers past
for this Friday’s blushing Summer blooms.
Ahhh, you remember summer don’t you? When the sun
is shining, bee’s are buzzing, butterflies are flitting, or is
that fluttering or maybe both.
The sound of lawnmowers droning it all out while we mow the green grass for the second time that week?
Have you seen those mowers that mow the grass all by
themselves? Sort of like a Roomba vacuum only on grass.
Oh, clean up your mind. Now back to…
Summer, when sparkling streams look so refreshing you want to slip back to your childhood and go wading.
When the mosquitoes bite, the days are humid and the sweat drips down your…
”You are wandering off here Lona, get it back together.”
Well I suppose you don’t talk to yourself either ?
Summertime when the aquilegia, ‘Rose Barlow’ blooms with drooping heads of pink….
Have you really tried to ever photograph these things?
or summertime when pink lilies are aglow from the sunlight filtering through the petals as canopies of green leaves paint a backdrop. So magical.
I remember that one summer that the Veronica Speedwell
’Red Fox’ put on its first blooms.
I do not care what they say it is pink, pink, pink and I am sticking to it.
Or maybe in the early beginnings of summer when
the pink ‘Sorbet’ peony puts on its giant blooms.
With a few ants thrown in of course.
Well you see there is this myth about ants and peonies
which many believe….
”Whoa girl, rein it back in.”
Summer, when the Rose of Sharon bushes are full
of beautiful unfurling blooms….
and the #!#*#! Japanese beetles chew them up
”Okay I’m back, I really am” …
Summer, when the pink ‘New Dawn’ roses are climbing across the shed roof and blooming in mass, it just loves to reach up toward the sparkling sun.
Just as its giant thorns reach out for the skin on your arms or legs while sniffing a bloom …….
When ‘Antique Rose’ dianthus bloom in their second summer.
Note to self: Do not pull them up before their time.
Summer is the time for ‘Lollypop's’……
and Summer has a lot of ‘Razz-a- Matazz’.
I should be so ashamed! This is so corny that I
am thoroughly embarrassed and blushing. LOL!
Seriously now, join us in “Flaunting Your Flowers,”
present, past, or blushing for Fertilizer Friday!
