Fertilizer Friday is hosted by Tootsie Time http://www.tootsietime.com/.
It was not a good week for me. Combine the remnants of a cold and a bizarre work schedule and I was left with just enough energy to snap some pictures.

Above, a light pink selection of morning glory 'Stripes and Splashes', please pay no mind to the half eaten bean leaves.
Above, finally a bloom on of my two surviving 'Stardust Mixed' geraniums. I started with nine and lost seven to rot. I didn't think that was supposed to happen with seed grown geraniums!
Above, a close up of 'Cornell' morning glory.
Above, a selection from 'Candy Stripe' zinnia.
Above, a close up of my living bouquet of 'New Burpee Hybrids' cactus zinnia.

The season seems to be winding down, even though it's still august. The heat and the draught have taken their toll despite my valiant attempts at keeping things watered. The summer vegetables were a bust this year, with the exception of sweet peppers. Last year, despite the problems with blight I had tomatoes on very surface in the kitchen. This year I couldn't even get a decent amount of cherry tomatoes. Sigh, there's always next year...
Have a great weekend!
