Fertilize Friday 6/11/10

It was hard this week to fertilize, we had a lot of rain and it seemed to always start at 5:00 p.m.. Got it done though and things are looking good. A lot of things are just ready to pop.... when will they pop? I'm linking in with Fertilize Friday hosted by our wonderful Tootsie Time. Check out all the other beautiful gardens linked in, I get a lot of great creative ideas to work off of.

Not too much new this week. Lots of buds just waiting to pop.... what are they waiting for?

The veggie pots are really taking off. This zucchini is looking real healthy.

The wave petunias in the sink are coming along. Couple more weeks and the sink will be covered.

This buttercup is just loaded with blooms and buds. The third year's a charm.

I love lavender. I've never really harvested it, but I still enjoy it.

After seeing hollyhocks on other blogs last week mine is not very far along, but it's really looking healthy. I have high hopes for these.

The azalea that looked half dead earlier is the only one still blooming. It all seemed to come back fine after a skeptical start.

And this is what my MM (Maintenance Man as I call him) has been working on. He ripped up the old (really old) walkway and put in new brick pavers. I think he did a FABULOUS job!! He's going to work on the lighting around the porch and walkway and staining the porch then I'll be putting some pretties by the front steps.

So are your daisies as loaded as mine? The day lilies are also ready to shine. I've missed the beebalm blooming every year so far.... hope this year I get to see it. And I'm anxiously waiting for the neon sedum to bloom. What's blooming in your garden?

Judi, your flowers are starting to bloom nicely! I especially love buttercups and daisies! Right now, I have petunias and lantana, it's time to plant some more in place of my petunias, but they are still blooming.

Oh my, your brick pavers look great, great MM!!

our zuccini is at about the same stage as yours. the brick pavers look great. We did that last summer and were really pleased with them. Happy Gardening!

Your blooms are really coming along! My hollyhocks are about the same size as your's. Thanks for sharing, Paula in Idahp

Everything looks so pretty and healthy in your garden. I love lavender too, but I don't harvest it; don't really know what to do with it.
Have a wonderful day.

Judi, Love the petunias, in the sink, on the stump - how creative and cute. Love your new pavers too - does MM hire out?
Good luck with your hollyhocks. If you were ever to need some seed, I have red, dark pink, yellow and light pink. At least that's what I had last year. Mine self-seed very freely. Hope you're having a great weekend!

I am always interested in seeing other people's garden because then I get some ideas. I love yours and you have some pretty interesting things going on. I am excited every time I see blooming flowers in my garden. I too have azalea, hollyhocks, petunias, lavender that are blooming.. I love watching all your hardwork pay off! LOL! I have so many things going on in my garden as well, and I am still planting some more. I am excited actually! Are you guys still in Alaska? My husband and I are considering on moving to Alaska if things don't go well here in town. We will see! :) LOL! Thanks for checking my blog! :)
