Fertilizer Friday and Flaunt Those Flowers

It is Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie's and this week I'm participating for the first time. I've decided that I have the most blooms going on in my garden the end of June and first part of July.
My daylilies are putting on a show and I've got several different colors and sizes.

I thought this was a particularly good shot with the dew still on the petals. My son took these pictures with his new camera - still trying to get the best settings on the camera.

This is my mandevilla that I've had for 5 or 6 years. It's blooming its heart out now. I put it in the greenhouse every winter after I cut it back to the ground.

I thought this was a pretty great shot of a coneflower - and I have a million coneflowers blooming. Each year there are more - if one tried to grow them like that, you couldn't!
We have some water lilies that are blooming each day as well. Blogger is being very slow at uploading today so I'm going to call it quits for this week. Be sure and check Tootsie out. She is the "Queen" of growing gorgeous flowers.

your gardens are beautiful. I really like your water lily. I've never given a hand to water gardening yet... maybe that's next.

Lovely flowers. The Daylily with the waterdrops is beautiful and I love the color. I'm new with Daylilies and just bought a bunch but they are labeled by color and not name so I've been posting them to see if anyone knows what they are called.

Beautiful flowers!!! I just fertilized my water lilies and am hoping they will bloom too! They have not bloomed in years and someone said they had to be fertilized to bloom. I bought the fertilizer tablets for water plants. What do you use?

Everything is so pretty. I've fallen in love with purple coneflowers after seeing them on everyone's FF posts, and I will have to get myself some :-) Love the water lily bloom.
