Fertilizer Friday Happenings

May 11, 2012

I'm linking up today with Glenda at Fertilizer Friday.  Check out the websites there to meet other interesting garden bloggers and see what's blooming in their gardens!

In mine today, I have (from top to bottom) lovely purple lamium, muscari, some small iris (that I liberated from a vacant lot that used to have a home on it), and some very healthy looking periwinkle (given to me by my friend, Paula). 

Below that is a shot of wonderful hosta poking up and two shots of my side bed and back bed.  As you can see everything is starting to come along. 

Happy Fertilizer Friday, everybody!


  1. Hi Diane, Your iris are really pretty as is the periwinkle. But even more than that, I love that lamium! I have a lamium called archangel that has yellow blooms, but I like yours better!

  2. It is great to start seeing plants emerging from their winter hibernation you have some lovely early spring plants.

  3. Diane, we share a lot of the same plants, though our Zone 6 garden is a bit ahead of yours. It's nice to see the spring blossoms again. Thanks for sharing! ~~Rhonda

  4. Your garden looks at the same stage as mine ... isn't it great to be back out in the dirt? :)

  5. Hi Diane, The recent rains have really brought the garden along here and I am sure your garden is similar. All of a sudden everything is lush and green. It is seems appropriate that cooler colors like purple and blue seems to leading you into the warmer days in mid-May.

  6. Always good to see all the new shoots coming up.

  7. Love the blue muscari! If it is hardy for you I might give it a try here in z3a. I just crave shots of blue in the spring.

    Enjoy this lovely time! :)

  8. Very pretty and that blue just jumps right out at you. What a beauty that is.

  9. Diane, Isn't spring wonderful! I love the color of your muscari. Now everything will start happening so fast, we can't keep up -- but I wouldn't have it any other way; this is what keeps us going through the long months of winter. -Jean


Comments are always welcome!

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!
