Fertilizer Friday

It's Fertilizer Friday so be sure and go over and visit our hostess Tootsie and see what's blooming in everyone's gardens after fertlizing every Friday! In spite of my being away and in spite of the continual rain, the garden is surviving and some parts are thriving. But please Mr Sun; please come and STAY a while!!

False Sunflower

Day lilies in the back shade garden are just beginning.

Please help me -- who am I? What I'd been thinking was Lamb's Ears ain't! But these bright pink blossoms are really pretty.

One of my 99 cent rose bushes continues to charm!

The largest of my hostas is in full bloom (as are all the ones lining the driveway; but the rain has been hard on them and they need a day of sun to be able to stand tall!)

I can't remember what this little low-lying plant is called, but it's full of buds.

Lots of Shasta Daisies in bloom. They're such great old-fashioned flowers.

And here are my 2 new gnomes -- both hard working, as you can see .... as well as a little vacant looking? Maybe it's just lack of sunlight!

are your pink blooms rose campion?

Tootsie said...

your photos are just so pretty! I wish I could capture my flowers with the right setting!
Your garden looks great friend...and the gnomes add a little humor to them too!
thanks for joining in. I will add you to the linky...since I am late to put it up!

Your hostas look great - so full! And those 99 cent roses were worth every penny eh? Great pictures this week :-)

Marie said...

Beautiful garden pictures! I love your garden gnomes! They look very comfortable there!

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Thank you O.I.M. Yes, they're rose campion. It's one of those plants I purchased at a road-side stall the year before last; but I do remember someone telling me that's what it was. They're so pretty!

We have had a lack of sun around here too and I know things would be growing better with some sunshine. Weeds and grass are thriving. Have a great weekend!

Lisa said...

Your gnomes are absolutely adorable. They have the cutest grins - just makes me smile!

Very pretty! I think the little white one is a type of Campanula. I've tried growing them but the slugs mow them down before they get a chance to bloom.
I think those false Sunflowers have the neatest flowers!

Mary at My New 30 said...

Looks just beautiful!! Love the gnomes too - I need some of them.

Connie said...

Your garden is looking great! Yes, the pink flowered plant is Rose Campion.

Crafty Gardener said...

Yes your pink blooms are rose campion, a close relative of lambs ears, but not so soft. Love the gnome.

Colleen Wms said...

That false sunflower is very interesting. I need to get me one of those ;-)
Your photos are great. I look forward to touring the rest of your gardens through your blog!

I love, love your false sunflowers. I don't (yet) have those. And your orange daylily would look really great in my garden. I've been on the lookout for one like that. Anyway, you have wonderful pics.

What a lovely fanciful garden. Beautiful. I won't be able to check on you until about September with my move and all and we have to get High Speed internet. I will sure miss my blogger friends in the meantime.
