Fertilizer Friday - TGIF

Are you glad it's Friday - I sure am. Hope you have had a good week. It's that time of week when we all get together over at Tootsie Time to join in the fun. Ya'll go check out who else has something blooming on Fertilizer Friday. Go here to check it out http://www.tootsietime.com/.



My sweet Little Buddy. It's too hot to stay out but maybe 10 minutes. This is an air conditioned baby here.

The Fourth of July is next week. The begonias look good next to the flag. This container is so full since the begonias are doing so well. These will bloom all the way into the fall.


Butter yellow zinnia. I like the softness of this color.

I love these zinnias. The plants are about 12-15" high. Plus they don't blow over in the winds.
These pink ones with a flower about 1-1 1/2" wide and these plants also are about 12-18" high.


I have a feeling these are the ones I received from Darla. When the plants are small they seem to have clusters of zinnias as shown here. And they are not the same flower but on the same bush. Go figure.

Cannas are displaying one flower at a time. I wish my red ones would bloom this year. They didn't last year.

Purple verbena.

Love these blue forget-me-knots. They keep giving once they started blooming.

Everything is behind on fertilizing. The gardens need weeding too. I will have to turn the sprinklers on them this evening. No rain up my way in at least a week. The plants are showing signs of conditions being too dry.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hi Becca. Your zinnias look so pretty and are growing wonderfully. Mine are so short ans stubby LOL! I love the bright pinks. Can you leave your cannas in the ground all winter there?

Rosemary said...

Becca; Your zinnas are very pretty love the soft yellow. I agree with Buddy too warm some days, others are just perfect.. especially Fridays and weekends.

Your garden is looking lovely and I am also waiting to see your red cannas. The weeds are a menace, they seem worse this year than normal but perhaps it is my imagination!! Diane

Deb said...

It's so fascinating to read what is going on in gardens around the US. You're on the verge of being too dry and up here in the Pac NW..we can't dry out..so much rain! sigh. Never a balance is there..lol! Your yellow cannas is so pretty!! TGIF

This year I grew zinnia's by seed. I do love how bright and colorful they are. Great pics and cute little doggy!

I love your zinnias. I don't know why mine never look very good. Maybe I will give them another try. My sister in Ohio swears by them.

Meg said...

This is my first year with cannas and I hope they do well. I am trying to make things feel a bit more tropical here if only for two months [actually 6 weeks with an almost guarantee no frost] I did plant zinnias though but they are still so tiny not robust like yours. Have a great week and hope to see you on Tuesday. Blessings Meg

I'm a little late checking out blogs but I am sure glad I didn't miss yours. What pretty flowers. I love Zinnias but they just don't want to grow for me. The slugs really think they are a treat. Thanks for the pretties!!!!
