This Week in the Garden


Beginning with a look at the vegetables in containers.






Galahad Mock Orange (above and below) is covered in white fragrant blossoms.




Summer Wine Ninebark is almost finished blooming.  So are the peonies, particularly after Wednesday evening's storm.


The Morden Blush hardy rose is full of blooms and buds.




Endless Summer Hydrangea has had a slow start this year.  I transplanted it last fall so it will receive more sunlight.  It didn't flower at all last year, so this is my effort to induce blooming.  That and fertlizer!


I love the juxtaposition of the blazing white of the Snow in Summer against the burgundy of the Rose Glow Barberry.
Evening Scented Stock (matthiola) has grown about 1/2 inch in the last week.  I can't wait for it to bloom!


My daughter's dog, Stitch, loves to hang around the pond and the shrubs.


Lastly, we visit the fuchsia in the front yard which has just come into its own this week.

What's blooming in your Fertilizer Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers garden?  

Happy Canada Day!!!

The white snow in summer is really an eye-catcher, I thought it was a snowbank at first. Love all the flowers in your garden and Stitch is a cute little addition, too!

The dog is a cutie! I too like the snow in summer. Hmm...I pulled some out when I first started gardening here, maybe I should rethink that. I've heard it tends to spread a lot.

Everything else is looking good!

Happy Canada Day!

Your Mock Orange is beautiful! For some reason, mine refuses to give me more than just a few blooms. Your Peonies are beautiful too :)

Rosie said...

Very beautiful blooms. I like the contrast against the barberry, too. The color of your roses are so soft and sweet. Stitch is just adorable.

I bet the Mock Orange smells heavenly! And I can't decide if I like your pink peonies or pink roses best. They're both so beautiful.

Blessings,
