Happy Friday Ya'll

I'm hooking up with Tootsie at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday. Here ya go http://www.tootsietime.com/2011/04/fertilizer-friday-flaunt-your-flowers.html - head on over and check out the others flaunting a bloom today.

Guess what if you set your camera properly you get photos that aren't blurry. Amazing.

I am falling in love with this new snapdragon. It is so different than any snapdragon I've grown before. It is a very slow grower. This flower has been opening up now for almost a week. It is tall - 15" and only has the one bloom. Most snapdragons spread but not this one. Snapdragon Giant Tetra from Hometown Seeds.


The fourth bloom on the Full Tide Iris.











Hope you all have a great weekend.

Pretty! Love your irises and snapdragons. I am so jealous of those in the south. We're still to cold to even get outside :(

I love that Snapdragon too - I've sure come to like them in the last few years. They just seem to bloom their heart out all summer long. Your other flowers are looking great too. Sure wish it would quit raining here and snowing and hailing.

What a beautiful snapdragon. It's one I've never seen before. I didn't put any in this year and now its warming up too much. I certainly am enjoying yours. Have a wonderful weekend.

You are so funny! You are right, if you set the camera right, you do get better shots. I think your pics look great though. I am loving that iris!!!!! I have seen so many beautiful irises this year. Seems like they have done better this year than last year. We are finally getting a much needed rain. Your blooms will be full of life after this rain

You had lovely photos even on the wrong settings, Becca! Or maybe it's my sight and yours! Ha! Hope you didn't get caught in all of those strong storms. We had quite the day here. Sun one minute and windy rain the next. Ahh, mother nature! Have a great weekend, Becca.

I'm a big snapdragon fan. That sure is a pretty colored one! Of course your other blooms are beautiful as well. I am excited for the irises to bloom, hopefully, in a few weeks.
