Fertilizer Friday

It's time for Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie's. Ya'll come on over and join in the fun and see who else has something to flaunt today. http://www.tootsietime.com/



Okra Hibuscus. I am loving this plant. Can't believe how long these plants have been blooming. More than a month.


Milkweed. Lots of butterfly activity but they are not cooperating for a pose.


Begonia and morning glory. This one is different and I did not plant it. The only time to catch it blooming is before 8:00a.


Zinnia and morning glory.

This canna is still opeing up.

Storms coming. Today we are getting those storms we were promised by the weatherman. Bad lightning storms. Lights flickering and computers making funny noises. Internet going down all morning. Surprised I finished this post. It is calming down outside for now though.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Thanks for these photos to inspire me to get out in my garden and plant flowers. I have a white foxglove and 6 coleus waiting to be planted.

Onamental Okra is a swell plant. Be safe in those storms.

I can tell it was hot and steamy at your home this morning. Your garden is still blooming so pretty though despite the summer heat.Maybe the rain will cool it off for you a while. Hoping you get no hard storms though. Have a great weekend Becca!

Loved your flower photos - Delightful. Loved your clouds as well. We had a lovely and torrential rainstorm today for about half an hour - then back to summer sunshine. :)

Hi Becca, Your flowers are all just gorgeous... Love that Okra Hibiscus. Glad it blooms for a long time. That is RARE, isn't it?????

Good Luck with your weather... We finally got some rain today... A little so far--but I'm not complaining. We are desperate for rain.

Have a great week..
Hugs,

Hi Becca. Thank you so much for the seeds! I will love planting these next spring. Summer seems to be going so fast and I am not liking this. I want to start spring over again. LOL! Thanks.
