This is the garden view this week.....

The knockout roses have been doing really well~

Can you see the little dew drops?

I thought this view was pretty, too.

I don't know the name of the purple flower in the center, but the bloom is pretty.

Here it is Tootsie~ { yes, it's still in one piece... it's a true treasure } I won Tootsie's giveaway several months ago and she keeps asking me where my birdbath It's on the counter by the sink { the bbq pit is on the left } but when the weather is bad I bring it inside. :)I♥It THANK YOU!

I thought maybe the storm last summer would have knocked out that birdbath...thank goodeness! I am glad you posted it!
oh....yesterday I got a compliment on my tootsie time bag...I had it at the post office, and a lady commented how cute it was and asked what tootsie time is! lol
I told her all about you and told her to check your blog out too if she decided to check out mine!
anyways...that knock out rose is a real diva hey? she love to do the photo shoots about as much as we all love to look and admire your beautiful gardens!
Next week....tootsie plants! rain or shine, I will be a dirty dirty girl...(in a good way...hee hee)
Thanks for playing fertilizer friday with me!

Jessica, Your flowers are so beautiful. The purple ones in the middle are Columbine. I adore knock-out roses. I can't wait for mine to bloom. I love your other roses, too. I always enjoy a stroll through your beautiful yard. Isn't this fun!
Hugs, Terrie

The last picture just killed me! What a joy to have a sink and counter outside!! Our weather wouldn't allow that but I'm so darn jealous!! I love the give-away prize from Tootsie! I remember her giving it away but I didn't remember you winning it! Congrats belatedly. Does the Genius graduate next year then? My Nicholas is moving out today!!!!! That's a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. I feel a bit melancholy about it but he's doing the right thing and he is grown up now. Busy times around here but nothing really worth blogging about and boring people with, LOL, thus my recipe for cleaning windows!!

Hi Jess, you are sooo right! No time to play in the dirt this week but tomorrow I'm gonna get down and dirty!

So nothing new to post this week, although I did fertilize my extisting beauties.

Your garden is looking sooo good! I love your flowers, I esp love your impatiens and your roses!

Darla said...

Is your unknown flower a columbine? I think I just saw it on another blog.

sue said...

Beautiful pics J! Yes, columbine, its a gorgeous plant and I had many but now have none, I don't know why I lose so many perrenials! I still need to get me a couple knockout roses, maybe this weekend! Have a great weekend sweetie! xoxo

Nancy said...

Jessica, You have a sink outside and I don't think we've ever seen it before! You lucky gal! The flowers are gorgeous, of course!!! Enjoy your day! Fancy

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Jessica! Oh, your garden is just beautiful! I love all your flowers and the little fountain from Tootsie is precious! She has the greenest thumb I've ever seen, doesn't she?
I got some knockout roses for Mother's Day and we planted them. They looked good for about four days and then some of the leaves began to turn brown. Do you think I've watered them too much or were they maybe in shock? I was sure hoping I could grow these!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Betty said...

I love looking at all the pretty flowers and yours are so pretty! I have never planted knockout roses but since I think I have lost a couple this year I think I will be trying them.
Have a great day!
