Fertilize Friday 9/3/10

Our wonderful host Tootsie who I haven't checked out yet today. She always has gorgeous pictures and wonderful hints for gardners. There are a lot of other gardners linking up so check them all out.

Well, it's almost Labor Day and things are really drying up. We had a good rain yesterday and last night to perk them up, but most of the flowers have seen better days. Basically we have the Rose of Sharon at the back of the deck still going great guns. The coleus and daliah are also doing good. The coleus falls over every time it gets a little dry (okay sometimes we go away for a few days :)), so I'm amazed that it's still doing good.

So pretty with the rain drops hanging on.

Bought some new Rudbeckia yesterday.

Hope I have blooms like this next year when they are out front replacing the

flowerless daisies. The daisies are in between the azaleas

Look who else I found on the camera. Little Punkin! We watched her last week while her family went to a wedding. She was actually starting to coo a little... she's about 5 weeks old in this picture.

That's it for this week. I have serious doubts about next week, but I'll show you how the Rudbeckia look in their new home and where the daisies are being moved.
