Fertilizer Friday

Picture 173

Isn’t this the BEST present ever?  Hubby and little sis just came back from a 4 wheeler ride and brought me some flowers.  They smell delicious and still have the roots.  (They are well  I am guessing a wild phlox?  They smell like that at least.  They are now tucked into the flower bed.  Weed or not, they are pretty and pink!

Sorry I have not posted or a bit… Lots going on here, as usual…I guess.

Hubby had knee surgery last Friday and is doing great, but he has been off work, so I have been busy with them.  Also having a yard sale tomorrow with family.

  4. Hi Brooke,
    What a beautiful garden, and blog.
    I enjoyed looking at your garden, you are talented!

  5. Is it ever beautiful there! I just love the shot of your yard with the lake in the background.
    Cute picture of your daughter! Don't you just love when they do those types of things? I remember when my older daughter was a toddler she brought me a tulip with the bulb still hanging off.

  6. it was worth the wait! everything looks wonderful. My malva zebrena is not blooming yet...and I have to grow the bean plants inside...they hate the weather here!

  7. Well trained indeed. Pretty flowers. I love the candy lily too. Hope your husband is recuperating and good luck with the yard sale.

  8. Wow your flowers are beautiful! I love how your daughter got the roots and all! You trained her right...(-: Now you can have a plant of your own and always remember that special day(-: Happy FF to you!!!!

  9. You trained your garden helper well! They'll last longer when planted anyway. What a great way to remember a special day. Love your blooms.

  10. Lovely flowers (including those with roots attached!) and a beautiful beautiful view.

    Good luck with the surgery,and I hope things get less hectic soon :-)
