Fertilizer Friday - Jun 3.11


These are some of the plants I bought at yard sales last Saturday: Geraniums, Columbine, Creeping Jenny, Ajuka and Starflower -- from $2 ea down to 50 cents ea. (Sometimes it pays to get there really late!)

I planted my flower box at my entrance with Gernamiums and Ivy. They're such lovely greeters at the end of a work day.

Look who's running away and trying to hide under the Solomon's Seal! He looks kind of sneaky; I wonder what's in his sack?

And here's what's blooming this week. .
I have a hollow section in the side yard that I someday want to plant and develop; but it'll cost a bit for topsoil etc. So over the past year or two, I've been tossing in sticks and leaves and the end-of-season dead annuals -- sort of a flower garden compost. Look what I found growing there. The pesky deer found them before me; but now I've "Skooted" them, I don't think they'll like the taste of the hosta!

For more gardening fun, I'll be checking out Tootsie and friends at Tootsie Time today. Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful garden. I have never heard of buying plants at a garage sale, that's something new. We have flower swaps around here sometimes. I learned something today:) Keep up the beautiful photos.

I love building a garden by composting. Unfortunately when I go out to check, I find weeds. Have a fabulous gardening weekend.

Psst, Doris, do weeds count as flowers because that's what I'm best at growing! Your garden is so lovely.

Your garden is going to be so AWESOME come July or August! I remember it from last year and I just drooled.
