Fertilizer Friday (on Sunday!)

My parents are here visiting, so I've been a delinquent blogger. Here's what's blooming today.



My hydrangea bush now has 2 bloom clusters.


This is my much sought-after Scarlet Lobelia or Candinal Flower showing its soon-to-be blooms.

My coneflower. (There was a slight breeze and it wouldn't stand still for a focused picture.)


Beautiful brown-eyed Susans.



The liatris is beginning to open. This one is more of a mauve color. The one in front (yet to bloom this year) is, I believe, pink. We'll find out how good my memory is later this season!


I have a couple of pink Astilbes coming into their own. I love these graceful plants.


Here's another bloom from this beautiful lily I purchased last weekend.

Your garden is lovely. I recognize several familiar faces on the blooms you have as they are also blooming in mine. Hope your visit with your parents was good and all enjoyed it.

I loved my visit on your beautiful blog. I see you share my passion of flowers. I call it my OCFD(Obsessive Compulsive Flower Disorder) It is truly an illness over my acre of flower gardens. It hosts 38 rose bushes here on our Ponderosa. You have a blessed evening.
