Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

It looks like your garden is at it's peak. Everything is so lush and colorful. All that hard work in the greenhouse and planting sure has paid off.

Millie said...

I am speechless! Your entire garden is beautiful! Lavatera doing great, and I really like the ornamental cabbages, which appear to be quite compact, unlike the huge ones I grew (too big!)

Cathy said...

Goodness..everything is so beautiful. I love the windows in the fence. I have never noticed them before. Truly awesome.. do you want to make a trip to Ohio next spring to get me started? You'd have to stay all summer.

pammiejo said...

Oh, Tootsie, you have the greenest thumb around. Your flowers are just simply beautiful! I'm an ardent admirer!! PAM

Teresa said...

I swear you have a filter on your camera that makes everything look brighter. Even your grass seems to glow. You must work very hard on your gardens, they are so very beautiful.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I want your flowers.....They are awesome..

Darla said...

Dang it girl! I had to enlarge just about every photo and nose around your yard. MG should give you something...it makes a huge difference in the health of the plants...I can tell here too. Beautiful, beautiful and yes I jotted down a few notes....smile. 'bout them roosters....I'm still in!

Darla said...

oops...I link up later..gotto get some fresh photos if the rain clears.

bj said...

I've never, in my life, seen such beautiful flowers. What a blessing to awaken each and every morning and see all this beauty. Now, what you need is......a crowing rooster !!! tee heeee...
Your gardens are just lovely, Tootsie.

Susie's country cottage said...

I'm glad I checked out your blog because I'm into plants and gardening big time! I think your garden is gorgeous and I am extremely envious of all the fantastic things you can grow. How do you manage to keep it looking to fresh? Most flowers in my garden now are finishing.

lynn'sgarden said...

Toots, honey! Your garden is spectacular! The plant combination, colors, whimpsy art...everything!! Glad I got to participate in FF this week ;)

Bonnie said...

I love your garden room. Everything looks gorgeous!

Lori said...

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

What a huge transition in your yard from May til now! WOW! You have got it going on, Glenda. FABULOUS!!!
I had a dikens of a time getting my post to take to Mr. Linky today. I hope it's finally on there!

Becca's Dirt said...

Good morning Tootsie. I never tire of looking at your gardens. Always so full and colorful. You have so much to look at and I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. I would LOVE to visit your gardens - but I'll have to continue to visit this way. I hope you have a fabulous day. You are such a sweet person.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

You must keep yourself really busy with the watering. It makes me tired thinking about it :) I can't believe how much you have going and all the color. You really do make the most of your growing season! Beautiful!

squawmama said...

Good Morning Tootsie... Like BJ said never in my life have I ever seen a garden in a home as beautiful as yours... Everytime I look I see something new. Today it was the hanging clock. We are going through Canada next summer on our way to Alaska. I would love to see you gardens if we could... Thanks for such beauty!

(((HUGS)))

RainGardener said...

Hi Tootsie, everything looks beautiful - as always. I'm glad you showed the front of your house so I can show Bob - I couldn't find it the other day when I showed him your bench and your 'mutant' malvas. ;-)
Today is going to be my first time missing Fertilizer Friday. They put my Dad back in the hospital yesterday (he was in last week too) and he is very sick this time. I'll be busy going back and forth to spend as much time with him as I can and then I'll be back to post when everything slows down here.

salmagundi said...

That malva is amazing! I'm going to have to talk to Mary about that. Since I live just a few miles from her, I bet it would grow beautifully along my back fence. Thanks for showing us your beautiful yard again. Sally

Justine said...

Holy shit! I can't even describe how in awe of you I am at this moment. Yours is probably the most beautiful yard I've ever seen. You must be the talk of the town, no?

I still can't believe you poured those cement pavers yourself. My goodness, it's absolutely beautiful!!!

Rooster mugs! Rooster mugs! Rooster MUGS!!!!!!!

Justine :o )

CC said...

Your flowers are beyond beautiful..and your garden room is just gorgeous. I would never want to leave it. Thank you for sharing all that beautiful....

Ramona

Lynette said...

Wow - your gardens are gorg!! Everything looks stunning!!

Just stopping by and making the rounds and couldn't resist a little stroll through your yard - it was very peacful and relaxing - just what I needed before heading home!

Happy Weekend to you Toots -

Jacki said...

Oh my, Miss Tootsie! Looking fabulouser and fabulouser each week. Eve3rything looks amazing, but I esp. like the flowers in teh bike bed - beautiful assortment! Thanks for hosting Fertilizer Friday. Hope you are getting a chance to just sit back, relax, and enjoy your gardens for a bit, before the fall work begins.

HeatherF1 said...

Lookin' great around there as usual!! All those petunias must smell fabulous!
I don't know if you get over to RMS too much anymore (I don't too often), but you have to check out "A little bit of paradise" in the garden section. A man after my own heart with a garden like that! He might rival you with fertalizing! ;) Heather

trash talk said...

I would probably sit on the patio and never get up, it's all so pretty. Does your malva come back like it does down here? It's one of my favorites.
Debbie

Laura said...

First of all everything looks beautiful.
Secondly I have a gazillion questions:

How often does it rain there?
Do you do this all on your own?
How often do you feed your plants?
Do you plant special fall plants?

Laura

Stacey said...

Each time I visit you I am just stunned. What kind of grass do you have? It's so perfect and has filled in between the rocks so well. Everything is just unbelievable!

Ellie Mae's Cottage said...

Your garden looks gorgeous for this late in the season. I love just looking at the pics and dreaming. -Jackie

D said...

Beautiful flowers, Tootsie. I spent most of the day today pulling up weeds from the old, overgrown flowerbed. I hope to get my shrubs planted tomorrow.

Tootsie,

Things seem to be slowing down at our house a little, so I took the time today to give your yard a good look, it is beautiful!!!!! I can't imagine how you manage to keep up with it, you must work late into the night. It's been a while since we had a good 'email chat' we'll have to do that soon.
Take care my friend and take some time to smell those beautiful flowers.


Love & Hugs
'D'

Tamara Jansen said...

Holy COW, woman! Your garden is stunning. Don't you some times wonder how you get it all done? Do you have garden fairies to help with the weeding?!

kclily said...

I am picking my jaw up off the floor...your gardens are fabulous. Give yourself a big pat on the back. I plan on joining on next Fridays fun.

Queenmothermamaw said...

Ya I want to know how often do you fertilize them and what do you use.?
Think you can answer all our questions?
WMM

Barb said...

Tootsie,
Those are just beautiful pictures.
I can sure tell how much you love your yard and all the flowers.

OK. You said on a comment to me,
"I need a cloche!".
Maybe you were only teasing, but, if not.....

Do you want to know what my little guy is in?
He is in an upside down votive candle holder, which is siting on a little glass piece.
You want a big one?
Go to the thrift store and get a cake dome. Vases also work. Upside down, with a glass knob on top.

Want more ideas? Give me a holler!!

Hope i was a help. =0))

Blessings,
Barbara Jean

Barb said...

PS
wire anythings work great too.
You can even form your own with chicken wire around any shape you want.

hugs
