Fertilizer Friday

May 30, 2014

Almost the end of May! It's hard to believe.  The temperatures have been so nice for the last week that everything is coming along very nicely indeed.  

It's also Fertilizer Friday, so I'm linking up with Glenda at Tootsie Time to show what's blooming at my place today.

I'm finished the 'work' (I find it hard to call gardening work because I find it so relaxing and enjoyable) of filling in spaces here and there with perennial divisions.  I've put on some fish mulch  for fertilizer around the perennials and put on an extra layer of cedar mulch to help keep the weeds down.

I don't have a lot of new things in bloom today - the tulips and daffodils from my last last post are still going strong and the lilies of the valley are ready to burst into bloom in the days to come.

I just have a couple of new things to show this week:  

some dwarf irises found on a deserted property several years ago
"rehomed" into my garden

arabis 'rock cress' beside our front steps

Pasque Flower (provincial flower of neighbouring province Manitoba)

and some divisions for my garden club's plant sale tomorrow!
Hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to link up with or check out the other lovely photos at Tootsie Time.


  1. The colour do those irises is beautiful and the lovely pasqueflower I had one but it disappeared. Glad you are having a spell of lovely weather I wish we were. Have a good weekend.

  2. Wow, such a robust and beautiful clump of pasque flower!

  3. I love that term "rehomed" and i love that iris too.

  4. Goodness your blooms are stunning! I would really like some of those dwarf irises! My garden friend next door put some in and after seeing yours I am thinking I need to do the same thing!!! And I feel the same way about the garden....it is so enjoyable! Wishing you an outstanding weekend! Nicole xo

  5. The dwarf irises at their new home are a pretty colour and I enjoy pasque flower (pink and purple) in my garden too as it's soft foliage is a joy to touch.
    Nice to see some of your plants being shared at your garden club plant sale!

  6. Thanks for sharing, love those Iris!

  7. Glad you adopted those irises, they are so beautiful! I love the Pasque flower, I didn't know it was Manitoba's flower! So pretty.

If you have a question, I'll respond on your own blog, if you leave me the link! I'll also answer questions here (in case anyone else is interested).

I had to start 'moderating' the comments because I was getting so much spam, so if you notice your comment doesn't show up right away, that is why.

Happy Gardening!
