Fertilizer Friday

Happy Friday Girls! 

Today I'm joining my Canadian friend Tootsie for

Fertilizer Friday.

Everything is just beautiful here in Edmond, OK right now. 
We've had cooler than usual temperatures and the plants are lovin' it.


What's blooming at your home right now?

We have happy geraniums, several varieties of daylilies, crape myrtles, hostas, and more.


Our pond is looking great this year.

Hubby has it down to an art now! 
We've had the pond four summers and it has been a learning process.

By the way, never let anyone tell you that a pond is not much work.

It's very worth it though.


The path that we put in recently is filling in very nicely with pennywort.

(Please ignore the random weeds and volunteer oak trees.)


And last, this is the bed that we put in just a few weeks ago.
We planted this bed with abelia, crape myrtle, and duckfoot coleus.  The coleus grows in a mounding ground cover manner.  Love it!

Can't wait to see what the rest of you have happening outside.

I'm off to supervise a little tree trimming. :) 

Be sure to visit Tootise and the other Fertilizer Friday participants.

Everything looks so lush and pretty, Stacey. Your path is truly beautiful and I would love to see more pictures of your pond. I know how much work they require, but, like you said, they are SO worth it.

Best wishes to you and your family for a very happy and peaceful 4th of July weekend.

So pretty...yards that looks this nice require lots of work...but the results are worth it.

Have a safe weekend!

Stacey,

Love all your bloomers!! The red caladiums are so pretty and your pond and path look wonderful. I love these cool mornings...can't believe it's not 100 degrees, but I'm not complaining. I'm off to buy chocolate mulch today at TLC. (I always end up with a couple new plants too..LOL) Have a wonderful Fourth of July with your family!!

Stacey,
I love your path! Something about a stone path is so romantic and cottage-y.:)

Debra from Bungalow said...

So pretty. I really like your path! It is very dry here and the grass is starting to crisp. Wish we would get a decent rainfall so it would all green up again.

You blooms are lovely. Have a great weekend!

Everything looks so BEAUTIFUL!! Your newest bed also already looks great! I would LOVE a pond but as you said they ARE a lot of work and hubby isn't interested :(

Hope you and your family have a great 4th of July weekend.♥

A pond! How lucky! It is work but it can be a wonderful hobby.

It all looks so nice. Your pond is so pretty and the pathway is charming. I have thought of getting a pond or waterfall feature, but I had a feeling they might be a lot of work. It seems like we already have enough of that around here :).

As always...so beautiful! Your path is wonderful...I am trying to think of where we could put one;)!

Happy 4th!

That path is just wonderful! So charming!!!
I love Edmond OK. I love Oklahoma.

Angie said...

Your yard is gorgeous and I love the new pathway!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Your yard, your pond and your flowers do look so good! I am thinking our days have been too hot and dry in this part of the country. Without constant watering, they just do not look like yours. Maybe, I just need someone like you and your green thumb to give me tips. Beautiful post!

Your garden is splendid, and a pond too. I've never tried to create a pond. Yes, the weather is very different than our norm isn't it? I hear more showers are in the forecast which is good since I'm heading to Buffalo tomorrow. Bill won't have to work so hard to keep things alive.

Sorry about your sweet dog too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Would love to see your garden sometime.~~Dee
