Fertilizer Friday - Coming Up Green

Good morning everybody! It's that time again when we all get together to flaunt our flowers and fertilize those babies. Ya'll head on over to Tootsie's and check out her fine blog and see what she is doing in the Greenhouse. And I know you want to know who else is participating and flaunting their pretties.

It just so happens I don't really have much to share other than some green coming up here and there. All of my stuff is still in the seedling stage other than the color I purchased which are not shown today. They still look the same except for a ton of buds. I'll share next week. I fertilized them last Fri so they are really taking off.

My first art for the butterfly garden. I like the angel here and will be adding more angels.

Johnsons Blue Geranium is really happy here. That is snapdragons coming up - the wind caught some seeds. It's OK though maybe they'll flower.

Catherines Red Breadseed Poppies are really popping now. Take a look and that isn't all of them.

The last of the pear blossoms.

Me neighbor looks at me funny when I am outside with my camera. Especially when I am taking photos of the ground. He was laughing the other day when I was out taking pictures of the little ones coming up. That's a blogging gardener for you.

Weeds with flowers.

Different weed with flowers. Does it look like I am looking for stuff to post for Fertilizer Friday?
I've been hearing the birds singing and didn't realize they were so close. A birdnest inside the window screen. (Ya'll I am embarressed by the appearance of the outside of my house but I am hiring someone to power wash and paint it in the next 3 weeks.) I don't see any eggs in it. Can't figure how the momma bird thinks she is going to get those babies out of there.

I have lots of seeds sprouting. Yellow Okra Hibuscus, milkweed, forget me nots, purple balloon flower (all from Darla) and red melon poppies and foxglove from Tatyana, and sweet william double mixture, pansy, petunia, lettuce and cosmos. A few more that I cannot remember.

Some of these will be planted next weekend. Shasta Daisy and Johnny jump ups and sweet pea everlasting.

Awwwe another toy. The other arm is already gone. My sweet little Buddy.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Good morning. I can't wait to see those poppies bloom. One of my favorites. I got some poppy seed earlier that I haven't gotten planted yet. This weekend for sure.

Darla said...

Girl, you got a lot of holes to dig!

Wow that birds nest is way neat. We once had one in my front door wreath! Hahaha

Ginger said...

My neighbors look at me funny when I'm taking pictures of the ground, too!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I feel like my neighbors wonder what I'm always doing with my camera. I think that's why so many pictures are from the backyard.
That's a very interesting place for a nest, it's funny the places they choose to build in!

Good Sunday Morning! You are going to be busy this next week. I especially can't wait to see your Johnny Jump-Ups and Catherine's poppies. Buddy is the sweetest pup; give him a hug and you have a great Easter week.

Hi, I am so glad the doctors visit was a mistake and nothing too serious to worry about.
You have lots of little beauties coming up,I hope your weather is better than ours, no planting out here for another week or two.
