Fertlizer Friday Flaunt your Flowers-New Bloomers!

I'm joining my friend Tootsie this week for Fertlizer Friday/Flaunt your Flowers.  I always enjoy visiting her blog and seeing everyone's weekly posts.

I am still "bloomerless" in my landscape and I desperately need to go buy some fresh flowers this weekend to cheer up my home.    

These are some beautiful bloomers from a trip to California we took last year..they make me happy especially when snow is still on the ground outside. 

I love these hot colored zinnas..they don't do well in my yard but I love seeing them in mass plantings.  

This hanging petunia was so pretty and fragrant hanging under a metal arbor.

I love this get's too hot for these in Oklahoma's summer..another reason I need a greenhouse! 

They were just bringing out the mums in September when we were there.

A french wire basket full of fragances...

and a lovely little flower border along a sidewalk.

And you may have noticed my newest "bloomers."   Thanks to Jackie at  Memories by Design for helping me create my custom blog button!      

Hope everyone has a fun Fertilzer Friday and Flaunt your Flowers!  


  1. Love all of these photos....I have a lot of reasons I need a greenhouse too.

  2. Beautiful pictures. We had the same thoughts on our posts. I posted pictures from California also. That is about all we can do right now but that warm weather is coming.

  3. Love your photos..they made me smile :)

  4. I noticed your button right away. It's so cute. A shot of color is really nice at this time of year so thanks for sharing.

  5. HI Sonia - I've made it over to your place now too. I love the pic of the sidewalk and colours in the flowers. Glad you found my scottish garden blog through FF and thankyou for the lovely comments.

  6. Your photo's put a smile on my face..
    hugs ~lynne~

  7. I am so ready for those summer blooms. ;-) The fuchsia is gorgeous! Wonderful pictures to cheer us up.

  8. I'm afraid even if we had a greenhouse it would be cold there right now.

    Your pictures were a reminder and a teaser of what we have to look forward to in just a few months.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
