Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Sept18/09

Welcome to Fertilizer Friday!!! Today is the day we Flaunt Our Flowers!!! First things first...get out there...FEED those plants. Then take some fabulous photos of those gorgeous blooms and foliage...put them in a blog post...add my photo above to that post...then...link it to my blog. Once you have your post already posted....add your name to my Mister Linky below...and strut your stuff!
I am STILL waiting for the Mandevilla to open her bloom.....how long can one bloom take? So...while I wait...
yep...she is there taking her sweet time!!!
My greenhouse needed to be winterized...or at least get started... I hauled EVERYTHING outside...pressure washed the floor....
Had not just one but Three of my windows replaced due to hockey puck damage and cold cracking...
Moved the wicker bench that I rescued....looks pretty plain here now...(ya...those are fake...but will be part of a project soon)
Put down the foam flooring....put it all back inside...and called it a day...right? Right
But the next day while the rest of the windows were being done on the greenhouse....
I yanked most of this bed...the impatiens were pretty....but really over-run with the chick weed issues...
I could only salvage this little bit of it.
Then the bed in front of the hedge needed to go...it was just plain finished...
The two on the side of the fence had to be sacrificed due to the chick weed....I just could not get it all out without taking most of the plants...
So what's a girl to do when she has two very empty beds??? She steals two jumbo size pots off the cement patio...that's what she does....
it made a little more room to move on here! lol
Then I set to watering the grass and the beds with the sprinkler...the flower wall is doing okay considering the weeds and wind.
My bike bed by the garage from the back side (view from inside garage)
Pulled the rest of the Lantana and impatiens from this bed....(yep...chick weed)
Took down the curtains on the treehouse...It seems no one wanted to play in it anymore after we had some company PEE in it and the curtains smelled like urine...GROSS!
Sure looks open now doesn't it? I will store my empty pots under here again this year.
A view of the header bed (or what's left of it) from inside the greenhouse...
and the other side of it...
It is pretty but not like last years!
I was very surprised to go out to the front yard and see this! I don't know what it is...does anyone know the name? It can't be an Iris can it???
What ever it is...it sure is pretty....and a very good surprise indeed!
Now that's it for me...things are getting slim in my gardens now a days....what's in yours? Link up so we can tour around and see!
