Fertilizer Friday

Fertilizer Friday is hosted by Tootsie Time . This week I have a lot to flaunt. I have to admit that I'm a bit obsessed with my zinnias this year, while the heat and the draught have negatively affected just about everything else, they have been spectacular!

As always, you can click on any photo to enlarge it. I hope you enjoyed these blooms.


  1. Zinnias are one of my favorite heat loving plants. You have a great collection of them.

  2. Your Zinnias are sensational ... I particularly love that big pot of hybrids!! I clicked on the photos to get an enlarged view and thoroughly enjoyed all the photos.

  3. Your zinnias are just so pretty. I really like the Peter Pan pink. They are real work horses in the garden now with the heat on.

  4. Your zinnias are really colorful! Love that pretty four o'clock too, Ed. Four o'clocks remind me of my aunt and uncle who I visited often during childhood. They always grew them. Have a great wknd!

  5. Wow, that meteor zinnia is impressive...

  6. oh WOW...I love the peach zinnia best but they are all amazing!!!

  7. Thanks for all the compliments! Getting out before 6am to water seems to have paid off. Now if I could only figure out how to photograph the color red...
