Cottage Flora Thursdays

I'm joining the party at Tracie's Cottage Flora Thursdays at Fishtail Cottage. http://fishtailcottage.blogspot.com/2011/04/cottage-flora-thursdays-16.html

Just a few things today.

These are nice pom pom like marigolds.


After trimming back the blooms on most of the plants a couple of weeks ago and giving them a shot of Miracle Gro Bloom Burst they are taking on a lot of new buds. This snapdragon is getting so big I may have to transfer some of it to a new location. Thats for another time though.

Nemesia is doing well with a shot of fertilizer. The purple nemesia is rather puny. Not bushy like the salmon colored.
 


I have a ton of work to get done today. I'm taking the day off tomorrow so I won't be around a computer for a few days.

I am working on a project tomorrow. I'll share that next week.

Hope you all have a wonderful time with your families this weekend.

Happy Easter

Becca, I love the salmon colored nemesia. I have some planted in my garden. How long will it bloom? All spring and summer?

Lovely flowers. The darn snails have ate almost all my Marigolds. The snails are bad this year.

Carol said...

Great photos! It's turned cold here again so no working in the yard for me this week. But I'm enjoying everyone elses beautiful blooms :)

I have company coming, so I will have to be away, too, but I am so curious about your project! You'll have to fill us in soon!!! Can you tell I'm not good at waiting!?!

Lavender Cottage said...

I love the colour of the geranium in your header.
You're way ahead of us weather wise, we've still had snow this week.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Your blooms are very cheerful! I love the marigolds and snapdragons!

Thanks for your comment and suggestion about the water feature. I'd thought of that, too, but now, I'm getting a different idea, and think that may be a sitting area. I may try to create a garden room in the area. We'll see if I can pull it off. I think it will take more than one season if I do. I hope the weather cooperates so they can get the stump ground up.

Have a blessed Easter.

Such pretty annuals...they add so much color and beauty to the garden. These all look so healthy and happy! I have snapdragons but I haven't planted any marigolds yet, I love their vivid hues. Have a great day.
