Fertilizer Friday

It's that time again...drop by http://tootsietime.blogspot.com to join or just view some beautiful flowers this first Friday of June. I tried to find some flowers that I haven't posted yet.

Another Dahlia (dollar store bulb)
Susans

Loving the Hydrangeas this year.
Larkspur with some Impatiens
Can't remember this one's name. It grows quite large, smells terrible and likes to take over. The little ones are easy enough to pull up if you stay on top of them. For some reason I like the way it looks...
Cosmos, Catherine did you send me these seeds?
Balloon Flower


Crocosmia starting to open
Purple Coneflowers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I am Thankful that it is the last day of the school year!!!

My Susans aren't blooming yet, but lots of buds. I like yours that has that darker eye, so pretty. :)

Love the Susans, I don't have any here in my yard. I need to plant some. Thanks for sharing.

I am not alone. I see you got two purple cone flowers open. I got one, so far. The others are still growing up.

Love the susans!
And my hydrangea is beautiful this year.
And the orange cosmos...my favorite!!

LC said...

Crocosmia is on my list... I've tried it in the the past and it wasn't hardy for me, but with an overall gentler climate during the past few years, It might work... especially the Lucifer cultivar... what cultivar do you grow? Larry

Bernie said...

Gorgeous blooms. Loved the Impatiens and Larkspur combination ... and your patch of Rudbeckias are just brilliant!

Thanks for dropping by to visit my Friday Flower Flaunt post from downunder ... glad you enjoyed your visit.

Dani said...

We just need to make it till next week and then school is out for us!!! WOOHOO!

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

That balloon flower is awesome looking. I like your impatiens and larkspur mixed together.

Susie said...

I have a million crocosmias but none are even budding yet.

NellJean said...

Lots of Pretties to see at your place.

I've not seen a crocosmia bud here. Yet. Acres of grassy foliage. The ones I reset look po'ly.

He-who-mows has carefully avoided all Susans growing in the lawn, LOL.

Karen said...

My Susans aren't blooming yet either--they are some of my favorites. Your flowers are beautiful! ~Karen

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

The Susans wont' be blooming here for a very long time. Yours are so pretty and Coneflowers already too!
I think the Cosmos might be from Lona, she sent me some too but they haven't even germinated let alone bloom yet.

I'm making a shopping list
* brown eyed susan
* hydrangeas

the smelly thing is probably some kind of yarrow. My coneflowers haven't even thought about blooming yet :) Beautiful!

Your susans are especially spectacular.

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

Your flowers are pretty and of such a splash of color. The flowers have really blossomed in my neighbors' yards while we were on our 2-week vacation.

Lois said...

I have to admit I was a little sad when I dropped my grandson off at school this morning--his last day of kindergarten. He's growing up too fast!

Love em all Darla, - time is ticking....

Prospero said...

Hi Darla. Things are looking great. I'm sure you are looking forward to the summer.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Wow your Susan's are unbelievably beautiful!

It's raining here (still) in the Pacific Northwest-People are having to re-plant their gardens due to wet rot. I didn't put my plants out yet -It will be an interesting year that is for sure!

Have a great weekend,
Robin~♥

Beth said...

Your garden is well on its way to summer and looking great! It's still just spring here and the coneflowers, hydrangeas, rudbeckia etc aren't blooming yet although there are quite a few things that are in bloom now. I enjoyed your post and you have a very pretty garden!

Paula said...

Such unique blooms you have - I tell you that every weke but it is so true! Thanks for sharing, Paula from Idaho

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Darla, Great pictures of your beautiful flowers.

What are your kiddos going to be doing all summer? Camp? Work? Gardening with Mama?

Hope your elbow gets better.
Hugs,

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Just look at all of your pretty coneflowers. I can almost smell the fragrance. The butterflies will be loving them. I wish our Dollar store had flower bulbs. Well maybe not I would be tempted to buy too many. LOL! Your Cosmos is so pretty Darla.

Greenearth said...

Love your garden.
