Fertilizer Friday-Finally!

This was the slowest week of my life...I thought Friday was NEVER going to get here!
The last 3 days were rainy, but I did manage to snap a few photos for Fertilizer Friday with Tootsie !
2 more varieties of Peony have opened

Campanula 'Blue Chips'
Dianthus barbatus
Lychnis Chalcedonica 
A view of the Wisteria 'Aunt Dee'. After being in the ground for several years, I got my first bloom last year. This year she is giving me more and I couldn't be happier!

An unnamed Petunia
 A few Roses have decided to bloom despite the dreary weather
'Carefree Beauty'
'L.D Braithwaite'
'Marmalade Skies'

'Midas Touch'
'Home and Garden'


  1. I love the bloom on 'Home and Garden'. Does it have a fragrance?

  2. Gorgeous photos!! You have such a lovely garden.

    Thanks for responding to my query about my mystery plant. Does this variety of artemisia grow into a woody shrub? As I understand it, this plant does.

  3. NotSoAngryRedHead ~ it is not one of my more fragrant Roses, but it does have an ever so slight scent to it.

    Shirley~yes, Southernwood grows into a woody shrub about 3 feet tall. It has a very interesting scent and is said to repel moths. I think it makes an interesting addition to the garden.

  4. are you kidding me???? you can grow wisteria???? I can't grow it here...not even in the greenhouse!!! I am soooooooooooo jealous!!!
    thanks for linking in this week. it is nice to finally get around to say hi and thanks to all the gardeners who patiently grow their flowers and who flaunt with me each week!

  5. Tootsie-Yes! I wanted Wisteria as long as I can remember and thought I couldn't grow it here. Then I found Wisteria macrostachya 'Aunt Dee' which can grow in zone 4a.

  6. Oops Tootsie - I just noticed that you are in zone 3! Maybe if you had a little zone 4 'micro-climate' in your yard?
