Fertilizer Friday-Flaunt your flowers July 8th

Another busy week done, I slipped out to the garden to snap a few photos so I could join Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday once again :)
The surprise Poppies continue to impress me. In certain light they look almost black

The Butterflyweed is really putting on a show this year

The pumpkin blooms really look nice

Maltese Cross
Clustered Bellflowers - a new favorite!
That 'Braithwaite' still gorgeous. I've never been able to capture it's true color 
 Comfrey - a delicate bloom and hummingbird favorite
The first Scabiosa

    Wow! I just love those black/deep purple poppies. I have never seen that color. ( and my Mum used to grow lots of different varieties when I was a kid.) I have never grown butterfly weed, but always admire it when I see it on other blogs. When I extend my garden into a bit more of a sunny location I must get some. Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh my!!! just when I was smitten with the blue/black poppies...the next and the next and the next!!! Your flaunt this week is absolutely stunning!
