Fertilizer Friday - 14 May 2010


After a week of being ill, I'm excited to get in the garden this weekend. Let's see what's managed to bloom in the garden this week (inspite of the weeds!!).
.

The Sweet Woodruff is starting to come into it's own.
I love this plant; but I have to be careful because it's apt to take over!
.
Another of my favorites is this wild Geranium, just beginning to bud.
.
The deer snuck into my garden at the beginning of the week! And this is one of the few Hosta that they didn't get at. The white spots on it is the "Skoot" I used to keep the deer from chomping.
.
These beautiful tulips are still blooming; you can see where the deer got one of the buds! Nasty, demon deer!!
.
Forget-me-Nots
.
My beautiful Primrose looking even more beautiful. I think it will get moved this weekend because it's hidden under the Holly bush.
.
The Bleeding Heart bush is still looking lovely.
.

The Boy's Love is also bushing out nicely. And it smells heavenly.
.
Thankfully, the weather forecast for tomorrow is for sunshine. So, when I get home after noon ..... after I clean the old mulch off the beds, weed, add compost and topsoil and remulch ..... I may just get these little babies tucked in their new beds.

.

So much work!!!

So much FUN!!!

.

.
Now everyone head over to Tootsie's to see the other beautiful gardens.

How fun to have a green thumb. I have a brown thumb on one hand and a silk thumb on the other.

I love seeing what's going on in other areas. We're several hundred miles away but some of the same things are blooming - Sweet Woodruff, Forget-Me-Nots, Hosta and Primrose. Your garden is looking goooood!
