Fertilizer Friday - Evening Edition!
Phew! Fertilizer Friday already - where does the time go? What a busy day...I Skyped with Superman this morning, the last of our kittens has now been fixed, my back was adjusted by my amazing chiropractor, and I even managed to go to lunch with a bunch of the ladies in my neighborhood. Still, it wasn't dark when I got back from picking up the kitten from the vet, so I headed outside with my camera to show you some of our mid-summer garden progress.
Look at this lily. I got these bulbs on clearance from Home Depot last year and really had no idea what would come up. This bloom is already four days old and it has been HOT here...still, it is gorgeous, isn't it?
My neighbor gave me this plant. I can't remember what it is called, but I keep moving the pot around to see where it will shine in my garden. The reddish leaves make it stand-out amongst the rest of the greenery.
The zucchini and pumpkin plants are doing well, too. They're actually loving the heat...we just harvested 3 zucchini last week.
The koi love it when I add water to the pond...too bad they won't pose for pictures!
The apple tree is bearing so much fruit, now I have to figure out how to save it from the birds!
Even the tomatoes are getting into the act.
Finally, these orange day lilies have been blooming beautifully...see?
There you have it...the Nagle5 garden Mid-summer 2010. What is going on in your world these days?
