Fertilizer Friday

Hey Ya'll - It's time for our weekly get together to flaunt our bloomers if we have any that is. I actually fertilized this bunch this week and they said thank you. Ya'll I'm so glad today is Friday. I have not had a good week especially the last 2 days. I woke yesterday to a coffee pot that wouldn't work. Bad start to a day if you're a coffee drinker. The days end wasn't any better when I dropped the oatmeal container on the floor. Work is stressful this morning - the phone is ringing off the hook - for ME. I will be out of here at noon (part of the cut in hours) but noon is fine with me on Fridays.

This is my bloomers I have for this week. Snapdragon still at it.

Love Dianthus.

A new one I purchased last week. Purple Salvia.

I love Vinca too.

Cosmos is doing well. It should be blooming soon.

Portulaca is blooming but not many there yet. I picked this one up last week.

Love the color of this verbena. This one I purchased last week.

Absolutely love me some Gerber Daisy's. I like the color - like a dreamsicle. I picked this one up last week too.

Another new one from last week. Love yellows this year. As you can see from the flowers I have that I have a lot of yellows this year.

Another favorite is Dusty Miller. Very hardy plant.

This is my clearanced Zinnia. It seems to like its new home.

The Johnsons Blue Geranium is still putting on a show.

Can't believe that here it is nearly the middle of May and I have another daffodil blooming - in fact I have two blooming.

We are still keeping our eyes on the Gulf as the oil moves around in the Gulf. So far we have been mostly spared. Over the past couple of weeks folks on Dauphin Island have come across tar balls. These are believed to have come from the oil rig when it burned initially as it was falling into the Gulf. The very real problem still exists. So many people are losing a ton of money not being able to fish certain areas and people are cancelling vacations concerned that oil would be on the shores. Anyway we will continue to watch these developments.
TGIF ya'll. Have a good weekend.

I love your plants, especially the dianthus, snapdragons, pansies and gerbera. The Dusty Miller is also an interesting plant with lovely foliage.

We have similar taste in flowers. I love dianthus, too. They give you so much bang for the buck. I just had my first cosmo bloom...they'll go strong all summer, too. Beautiful pictures. Have a great weekend.

Looking good Becca. I like that yellow Zinnia too. I noticed that I have a lot of yellow this year too, what's up with that? It's a happy color though.

I hope you have a great weekend and that next week is better.
You sure did find a lot of color for your garden. I love all the sunny yellows. I'm waiting for my Johnson's Blue to bloom now.

I have never seen blue geranium before. I love the blue. My snap dragons are gone with the arrival of the heat.

Gatsbys Gardens said...

Lots of great things blooming. I am coming to appreciate Dusty Miller for it's ability to add some depth and unusual color to plantings. My hope is that the oil does not immpact your shorelines and wildlife.

Sorry work didn't go well maybe next week will be better.

Daisy said...

Your blooms are all so pretty, Becca! They are doing well. Happy weekend to you. :)

Roses and Lilacs said...

I was listening to the news from the gulf this morning. More bad news. It's unbelievable we have let it go on so long. Just MHO.

Love your Gerber Daisy. Speaking of tough dusty miller. Mine overwintered in the compost pile and it gets pretty cold here--below zero.

Jenny said...

Lovely, lovely flowers! Zinnias are always one of my favorites!

Angel said...

Love your Snapdragons, they are always so pretty, and I can't wait to see your Cosmos in bloom!
