Now for something much better than our weather, flowers! It's Fertilizer Friday which is hosted by Tootsie Time every week.
Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' is too cold to open right now, but once the day warms a little all these pink buds will open. It normally blooms most of the year.
I feel bad that poor Rose 'Don Juan' gets forgotten about most of the summer, but this fall he's definitely calling out to us with these beautiful rosebuds.
Water Hawthorn (Aponogeton distachyos) has recovered since the raccoon "attack" last week. There are several new flowers. I've noticed it reseeds in my pond and have a couple new ones coming up.
I know I've show Kaffir Lily 'Fenland Daybreak' (Schizostylis) a lot lately, but it's just so pretty I can't help it.
Some of the planters on the deck that are adding a little life to the yard. The Meyer Lemon tree (on the left) is just waiting outside until it's cools down and then I'll bring it in. This will be my first year trying to overwinter it.
And last is this funny little Primrose that was already blooming. I think the slugs have already found the leaves, but so far the flower has survived their late night munching. I love these little surprises this time of year.I hope you'll visit Tootsie to see what else is blooming around the world, inside and outside.
