Flowers on Friday

This is one of my favorite places to sit and relax when I have the time.

I LOVE how big this Azalea got.

This is the first year the Grancy Graybeard bloomed.

Something got the Gander. The Goose and 3 of the Goslings were around for awhile until another pair of geese showed up and ran them off. 


 A Swamp Iris.


Thanks to Beth who blogs @  Beyond the Garden Gate and Food as Art  I just found out about Fertilizer Friday.

  1. The azalea and swamp iris are lovely! Neat to see the goose too. I'm sure you enjoyed watching them. You should link up to Fertilizer Friday http://www.tootsietime.com That way you can show off your flowers to even more readers!
    You asked about foxgloves. Some varieties tend to be biennial, which means they live two years. They do drop seeds, and since they're biennial let the seeds grow so you will always have some growing and blooming. I don't know about the freezing - catalog I bought foxgloves from says they are hardy in zones 4/5 - 8/9. Glad you're getting seedlings - that's a good thing!

  6. I just planted azalea last year and they are doing okay, but yours is amazing!! Hope mine doesn't get quite that big... they're planted in front of the front porch. I saw a lot of irises like these in Alaska growing in the wild. Beautiful.
