Thank God it's finally Friday. And of course, it's Fertilizer Friday with
If you're a gardener or a lover of gardens, please remember to stop by Tootsie's blog Tootsie Time and have a look.
Although my garden is in sore need of weeding, it's blooming beautifully.
Yet again this year, I have one lone Iris bloom in my front bed; there's another lone bloom in the back bed that will open soon. Perhaps they are star-crossed lovers and lone to be together! This is year 2 for my Jacob's Ladder, and it's loving it's location. How pretty it is.Another of my yearly favorites is the Meadow Rue.The periwinkle is such a pretty flower as well with it's shiny, leaves and petite blooms.Mountain Bluettes have just begun to open in the Larry bed.
And this is a beautiful little plant. I believe it's a kind of Lamium.

Happy Fertilizer Friday everyone! I hope your weekend is wonderful.

Pretty, pretty. I have many of the same flowers blooming myself now. I am surprised by only one Iris, mine spread so fast that I am constantly digging them up to thin the out. I throw them into the weeds and then they sprout there. Maybe that one Iris wants to be the shinning star of the garden. LOL

Your mountain blue-etts look very much like what I have growing here and we call them bachelor buttons. I'm wondering now if they are the same...I'll have to do some research on that one. Have a fantastic Friday

Since you really like meadow rues, have you tried Thalictrum rochebruneanum 'Lavender Mist'. It's my favorite and often grows to 8 feet in height, stands up on its own and is a very delicate, and basically 'see through' plant that is beautiful in my opinion. I've enjoyed your post! Larry

It has been so stinking wet and rainy out here, that all my flowers are still in the green house. And since we haven't been able to get any landscaping done, there are no pretty flower beds outside either.
very sad
but I like looking at yours
