Fertilizer Friday - West Coast


Welcome to another Fertilizer Friday - Flaunt your Flowers.
Thank you Tootsie for hosting this event.  Be sure to visit Tootsie Time to see more beautiful blooms.

I don't have anything new to show you this week in my yard so I thought I would share a few photos I took in 2006 when we did a tour of the West Coast of America.

I took this picture at the Carl S. English Jr. Gardens at the locks in Seattle.  It is a passion vine, variety unknown.

Isn't this a beautiful pot of flowers?  I took this picture at the Pebble Beach Golf Course.


I'm not sure if these are daisies or feverfew.  This was taken at The Arboretum of  Los Angeles County.  I love these little flowers and would like to grow something similiar.















No flowers but these redwoods are just too magnificent not to show.  These are the Crescent City Redwoods in California.


America the Beautiful!

Until next time,

Those redwoods look amazing. Oh I cannot wait till I can plant out summer bedding again and have them looking as good as the pot in this photo of yours.

I love your plants. I once had a passion flower growing here on the edge of the woods but then I couldn't find it the next year. I had not planted it so it must have washed in from somewhere.
