Pink Saturday! & Fertilizer Friday!

It's Prime Time
in
My Garden!

The Stargazer Lily's are in full bloom!

How about a Dahlia...
this is the Cactus variety.
I had to plant it...
it was the last package
of bulbs left on the shelf.

The Bee is abuzz...
with Runner Beans.

A bit of Yarrow has survived
the Soapwort invasion.

The Cleome's are starting to bloom -
Yippee!

For more pink...
&
For Fertilizer Friday

Yikes, you meant the soapwart is really invasive! Don't think I'll be trying any of that herb! I love cleome. My daughter has it in her yard so I grabbed some seeds last fall and literally threw them out in my garden... and sure enough, I have plants just beginning to bloom! Very pretty except they smell kind of like SKUNK!

I just read the grilled pizza recipe so I'm going to try your dough recipe too!

Oh Robyn, I love that bee a buzzing in your garden. Just a cute as can beee!! Ha! Ha! I couldn't resist but I do love it. I love metal sculptures amongst the garden, they give it such depth. Your flowers are gorgeous. Most of mine have burnt up in the darn Phoenix heat. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I would so love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

Lynn said...

Your garden is lovely! I've been scrolling down through the rest of your posts, too -- yummy looking ravioli, brownies, etc. Thanks for sharing all the garden and kitchen goodness :)

Claudia said...

Looks like your garden is just blooming like crazy! Lovely flowers! Happy Pink Saturday!

Joyce said...

Your garden flowers are so pretty. The heat here in Atlanta this past week and the humidity is taking a toll on some of the plants. We have had a cool summer so far so I can't complain. I hope to go to the botanical gardens tomorrow to see what they are growing now that the weather is hotter. They change things around all the time so it is fun to visit and tomorrow is a FREE day and I like FREE.

GORGEOUS garden. I love Cleomes but have never tried planting them. And that bee is so adorable!

Ginger said...

Hey Robyn:
I finally figured out you had a blog, cause I saw a comment you left on Nikki's blog...or Justine's blog. Can't remember.
Your garden is so pretty. Now I see where the talent comes from, on your farm.
Come and see me when you have a chance.
