Fertilizer Friday

Drop on by http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ for FF ...
We received 2 1/2 inches of rain yesterday so my plants are a little droopy. It's raining again this morning..we have a beautiful sun filled weekend in store...things will really jump then.
I have been waiting about 7 months on this Aubrieta Whitewell Gem to bloom...this is not for our zone...so there!

Finally a purple Crocus from my mixed bag of bulbs.
Narcissus Double Erlicheer

Candytuft looks scraggly this year.
February Gold
Lost name tag.
Pansies in Iris bed, there is a Clematis Vine at the base of this Crepe Mrytle Tree that is leafing out.
Pansies in one of my three wheelbarrows..See the Sage to the left, it's mixed with the Vinca Vine....it has stayed green since last Spring.
Pear blooms...........there will be Pear Pies in our future again this year.
Ranunculus still in bud mode.


Today I am Thankful it's Friday!!


Cyndy said...

So much happening in your garden! I especially love that budding ranunculus.

Susie said...

Pretty blooms Darla. My candytuft looks really bad. I'm not sure it survived our winter.

Hope you have a great weekend! I know you will with the warmer temps.

Roses and Lilacs said...

Good morning Darla. I sure like that narcissus. The coloring on the crocus is pretty too. I need to remember to plant more crocus this fall.

Dorothy said...

Wonderful to see some flowers blooming! Nothing here yet except a few Daffodils. Happy weekend!

Rose said...

What a treat to see all these pretty spring blooms, Darla! I'm still waiting to see anything blooming in my garden. It's good to see, too, that so many plants survived this strange winter.

Lola said...

Looking good Darla. Not much blooming here, too much rain. All is about to drown.

Dar said...

It's raining!!!yipee!!
We finally can see hope for spring. Nothing is blooming yet, just starting to poke it's nose, but soon.
Your blooms are like eye candy...thanks for sharing...I'm a sucker for pansies. And...I also have old wheelborrows that get scented with flowers. Too Cool.
Have a blessed, warm weekend.

Tootsie said...

Your flowers are so pretty.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Now I think you're ahead of us here :) You have so many pretty flowers blooming! I waiting for my Crocus that is supposed to look like yours to bloom. I had no idea they all bloomed at such different times.
The pear blooms here are close to opening, I'm hoping to see at least one pear this year.
Stay dry!

Lois said...

One of these days I'm gonna have to walk down the street and see all of your beautiful flowers in person Darla! I sure hope this rain gets out of the way before next Saturday. My son's wedding is on her fiance's family's farm in Havana and it's outside! I think they have a tent just in case, but I'm getting nervous.

Debbie said...

What a busy little Spring garden you have already. Those pansies look so prtty. I too, am glad it's Friday. Have a great weekend!

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful stuff Darla. Hope you have a good weather weekend. I'm closing up shop and going home now.

L. D. Burgus said...

You are definitely in the spring mod. We will catch up with you in three weeks. Your flowers look great.

Carla said...

SO pretty!! That gem is interesting, hope it really thrives for you:)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Darla, I can't wait til some things bloom here. Our poor pansies are trying to bloom --after a rough winter.. The Crocuses are also about to bloom ...

Yours are beautiful --and I love all of your daffodils. Our Candy Tuft is nowhere near blooming yet... It will be awhile on it I think..

We need sunshine --and right now, all we are getting is RAIN.

Have a great weekend.

Noelle said...

Love all of your beautiful flowers, but the Pansies and Alyssum are my favorites :^)

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Narcissus is my favorite among these gorgeous blooms. I need to plant this color, so far I have only yellows. Darla, you certainly have a green thumb. Two of them!

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Hi Darla. Your garden is getting so much color now. I love your Narcissus Double Erlicheer. Just beautiful! And all those pretty pansies. Enjoy your sunny weekend!

Anonymous said...

Hi Darla~~ Another beautiful banner photo. I love font you're using too.

Yay! Your long awaited Aubrieta is delightful. Two GREEN thumbs up!

Love the wheelbarrow and its loot.

I too am thankful it's Friday.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had to come over there since you mentioned laying all of those bricks. Wow. I had to see what you were up to. Your garden is ahead of mine in blooms. I can't wait to get to this point. Have a great weekend.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I am beside myself waiting for that Ranunculus to bloom! :)

Enjoy that warm weather!


Tom said...

You do have some beautiful flowers on show Darla.... I will not try to pick a favourite... have you a 'Macro' setting on your camera... if so that pear blossom is begging for a close up.

My son called by yesterday, I got him to take me out while I got a shot or two of some snowdrops.. very hard to find mind you.
I came across a garden I have seen being worked on over the last 3 years... it was a rough overgrown patch of land with a small natural spring which made for a soggy mess... It as been landscaped now and the spring as been made into the most beautiful stream, complete with small waterfall. I took a few pictures with you in mind.. and will post one or two later today. The cottage to this garden is on a single track road called Rabbit Lane....

Carol said...

Lovely to see all of your spring blooms Darla! I have not grown Iberis in years but seeing yours reminds me I should plant it again. Enjoy your weekend in the garden! ;>)

Di said...

Darla you could be here in the PNW... same flowers blooming and at the same time. ;) Oops, our pear tree hasn't blossomed yet. Hope your week was a good one and your weekend filled with much joy. Diana

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Your garden is awakening, so much activity! Love pear blossoms, so pure.
Have a great weekend!

Barbara said...

Very pretty and dainty peeping through and reminding us of Spring.
