Hey everybody! Ya'll know what day it is - TGIF. I am ready for the weekend. But before we start our weekend let's get together over at Tootsies and flaunt our bloomers and hopefully some of us are fertilizing. Whatever - let's get the party going here. http://www.tootsietime.com/
Blogger is now loading different and all of my photos were loaded in reverse order. Oh well - the changes will take some getting used to.
I got around to weeding this bed and it really is showing too much dirt - so what's a gardener to do. Think I'll go buy me some more color. The okra hibuscus is laying on the ground here. It'll break if I try to tie it up but it is still giving me some blooms.
I like the way this area looks. The colors really pop against the dusty miller. Zinnias yellow and pink and pink begonia with white vincas. Yet to bloom are my shasta daisy's. I am not expecting my lupine to do anything.
A closer look at the zinnias. I like how that so many are blooming in this one spot.
I am collecting seeds now from my zinnias. I will be looking for folks who would like some of these beauties. They grow around 4+ feet and will topple over in the wind. These are kinda on the ground but are still blooming beautifully. They grow best in 6+ hours of sun and are tolerant of dry conditions. Zinnias are a no fuss plant except for being so big.
Darn it some places on my post my curser wants to be in the center and then it finds itself over to the left. And then I can't get between some photos.
Anyway the dahlias are still beautiful.
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe Independence Day. 1776-2010 Happy Birthday America
