It's time to pull out that fertilizer and feed your plants, grab your camera and flaunt those flowers.....! Go on over to http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ and join the fun!!













My Fantasy Zinnias are lost among the Celosia and Purple Coneflowers.

Diamond Frost Euphorbia- Proven Winners--the bottom container of the Tipsy Planter.

WHAT THE HECK? My Primrose has a bloom on it!!!

Torenia and Alyssum

New Guinea Impatien with Torenia

The Monarda really is putting out a second flush of blooms.

My husband and I do not recall this Queen Tears Bromeliad ever having this many blooms at once. Maybe because I pulled about 10 out last summer

Wow Darla, your zinnias, and everything else, are knock your socks off gorgeous! What a treat with the brom too. I never met a zinnia I didn't fall in love with. You asked if we had firebush, I don't think it is hardy here, but yours sure is wonderful. I do grow pentas which bloom a long time and the hummers love. :-)

I planted several zinnias this spring and not one has bloomed yet. I hope I can find the Diamond Frost Euphorbia locally next spring. I really like that airy look.

You know there really are few flowers that can compare to the simple elegance and beauty of a Zinnia. They come in so many shapes colors and sizes.--Randy

Oh Darla, Those gerbera daisies and the zinnias are so beautiful but I have to say my favorite is that double datura. I have never seen one before. It is stunning. I also loved the pic of the flower with the little butterfly captured on it. Just beautiful. I am going to try the dish soap onto the tarp this weekend when they girls come back. Thanks for the tip. Country Hugs, Sherry

We have a wholesale greenhouse up here in Canada and we grow most of the plants you've got. Torenia NEVER works for us. We've tried over and over. It's quite cold up our way....maybe they don't like our chilly temps?

Lovely blooms today!!! Happy FF!!!

I love seeing all those zinnias! I'm anxious for them to bloom here, but I think it may still be awhile.
The Datura is so pretty.

Dirt Princess said...

The datura is amazing! I love it! I bet you are making some gorgeous bouquets with your zinnias...atleast thats what I do! We have gotten rain here every afternoon this week! WHOO HOO! The flowers are really catching up and beginning to get loaded with new blooms!

Awesome zinnias! Everything really looks good right now. Save the seed and you can plant them again next year.

Tootsie said...

Oh how I wish you were my neighbor!!! (not the guy I boss around...but the drunk woman on the other side!!) We could rule the neighborhood!!!
It is all sooooo pretty!
I just got my photos uploaded. My kids are gone for the week to my mother in laws and My husband left for work yesterday, so this toots is a busy girl...not sure what to do with all the freedom!!!

Darla, I'd have to choose the gerberas as my favorite in this post, especially the bright pink one! Please, please save me a few datura seeds for the exchange when the time comes :)

Beautiful as always Darla. You have so many zinnias and gerbera daisy's are one of my favorites. Yours are gorgeous. Wish it was scratch n sniff.

Jacki said...

Such beautiful flowers, and I have to agree with the others that the zinnias are just amazing.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

My lands girl but you do have some pretty zinnias. Do you have to take your gerbera indoor down there in the winter? Your are so pretty. I love the two I got and will try to overwinter them.
You know I do not know about that silly flower of mine. The leaves do look like phlox but the flower is funky looking for phlox. I know it was not what I expected but this has been one weird summer all around ;-)

Sue said...

Look at all those wonderful zinnias! I am so excited mine are doing well so far. I like what Frances said that your blooms are knock your socks off gorgeous. I can't pick a favorite.

Thanks again for all your nice comments on my blog.

Teresa~Gardening with Soule said...

MissyM said...

All of your flowers are absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I could pick out a favorite.
