Fertilizer Friday already?

I just LOVE short weeks!
This weeks cold weather is a reminder of what is ahead ... fall, and even worse, WINTER!
I'm really cherishing the blooms that appear now for I know they will be gone soon.
I'm joining Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday once again.
I've never really had much luck with Lantana, but this bloom appeared the other day and I am very pleased! (even if I can seem to get the right color!)
Salvia 'Black and Blue' - I love this stuff
The first 2 Gladioli blooms this year

                        Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' looking great since the cooler weather                    


  1. Your glads are just stunning, Netty! Mine did not do well this year...too hot and dry.

  2. Thank you for sharing your lovely flowers today. I feel we are headed for fall soon but I still have one foot in summer. At least with the 30+ days this week it finally feels like summer.

  3. Lovely blooms still in the garden. I'm enjoying what will most likely be the last of the flowers too.

  4. they are all just so gorgeous!!! Love the Lantana!!!
    I shared your post on tootsie's facebook page!
    since the summer is winding down here in Alberta, it will be nice to be able to see all the flaunts both past and present from all those who get to garden year round. I made FF open to photos from past gardens for those who are in climates that stink on ice like mine! lol
    Thank you so much for linking in this week...and for flaunting with me. I look forward to many more flaunts from you!
    Friday's Flaunts are a privelage for me to host. I love getting to be inspired by some of the most wonderful gardeners I have ever had the privelage of "knowing"
