Fertilizer Friday, June 25th, 2010
The sun finally has come out for a few days! I'm delighted to 'dry out' a bit although I'm not convinced that these warm rays are here to stay....nevertheless, the sunshine granted me an opportunity to capture some blooms to participate in Fertilizer Friday this week.
The dwarf daylilies are beginning to bloom. I really enjoy these hardy perennials all summer. I picked out re-blooming varieties to line the little walk way to our front door.
Stella D'oro the all time favorite
A peach variety that is very soft in color.
Along the side yard, the native daylilies are blooms. They always put on such a show for the neighbors and I!
My Tropicana hybrid tea rose is making a statement ~ and smells so sultry....I have it planted beneath my bedroom window and I love falling to sleep in the summer time with wisps of that spicy scent filling my nostrils.
Coral Red Penstemon ~ a new addition this year and I hope will help attract some butterflies
Tall bright pink Asiatic lilies are just beginning to bloom. I love what a great early summer statement piece these have become in my yard.
Lastly for this week, here are some of the first blooms from my Dwarf Gaillardia. I planted them last year and had no blooms, so I'm delighted that they matured over the winter and are providing quite the sunny display, especially with all the rain we've had.
Stop by Tootsie every Friday and see who is participating in the weekly Flaunt Your Flowers event!
