~~~~What Next?~~~~~

Life in my house hold has been unreal. It is nuts...and I have not had time to get around and say hello to most of my favorite people! I do hope this will not be the case very soon...be patient. I know it is killing you all that you haven't seen my name in the comment box! lol Just kidding....
I have a bad case of blogger block.
(THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE!!!)
I need help.
I don't know what to write about!

This is where you all come in....Leave me a topic suggestion or question that you would like me to answer, and if I can I will!
My head is full of gardening information, but I don't know what is and is not going to "float your boats!" Much of it, to me is just common sense or "nonsense" - hey...I am blonde....I worry that I will be patronizing or boring you all if I just pick up and write something. Goodness knows, I don't have trouble writing about plants....it is just WHAT to write about them that is making my life miserable

I can hardly wait to see what you guys suggest.
I'm stuck!
I hope you all have a great April Fool's day!

I would like to know about how many plants you use in planters? I would like to see how well the plants are growing. Kathy

I think this is so normal, but yet it stumps all of us. Really, it dosnt make sense because when you think about it--blogging should just be a fun, connecting with online friends here and there...no stresses, no drama--just an escape from our everyday worlds. I think when we are stumped, we just need to simply either skip a post or two--or maybe just post about our going on's at home that are light enough for people to take. Lord knows some of our lives are so chaotic it would scare some folks away! I've learned, for me, blogging has to be light. . Blogging takes just a few minutes a day and it dosnt have to be a stress. Visit a few other blogs when your stumped helps also--keeps us connected with our followers-plus we may find an idea to write about!

Darla said...

I would like to know your favorite plants and why they are your favorite. Your least favorite, yes Tootsie, we all have them, and why they are your least favorite. Would also like to know the secret to beautiful geraniums!!

Betty said...

Just wanted to pop in and say Hi! No ideas at the moment.

Lori said...

I would like to know how do I keep the squirrels out of my plants. They eat the plants and really piss me off. I have some plants in a planter hooked on my daughter's tree house and those damn squirrels have biten through one of the metal hooks and have tried to eat the rest. My daughter suggested a bb gun and I am really thinking about it. Any help would be greatful.

sorry about the language but squirrels really irritate me.

Hey Tootsie!!!
I love the new photos of you on your side bar!!
I always enjoying decorating ideas and loved the little peaks in your home and hearing about your daily life situations. Gardening ideas are always helpful! Just write about what you want..isn't that what most of us do?!
Warmly,
Deb

pammiejo said...

Do you move your new seed starts to a bigger pot from the seed trays before they go outside? Mine are getting bigger and bigger and I'm following your lead. PAM

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Tootsie, I am in the same boat. We both live in climate where working outside is in the future. It's so cold outside. We actually have snow on the ground. I have no new pictures to show. I feel like I am really boring right now. I wish I could help you with suggestions.
Hugs, Terrie

Dirt Princess said...

Tootsie I find every thing you say to be great, it isn't about pleasing us (or atleast for me!). Even though you still have snow there...there is still much to blog about. You are so talented and creative....you will find something. You are fantastic

cindy said...

Hi Tootsie, I saw what you wrote yesterday...very sweet. You are really a kind soul. ~Cindy~

Jeanne said...

Hmmm, I've just recently started following your blog. I'm not new to gardening, just seriously out of practice as I've been working a 70-8- hour a week job up until last NOvember! Last year Hubby dearest got so agravated with me not taking care of "my yard" that he mowed over all my flower beds.

I'm quite envious of the corner bed that you show as your main pic on your blog. I have an area at the back of my driveway where I have a little border of plants and would L-O-V-E to do something similar to what you have shown. Do you have a diagram that represents that? Did you leave any paths to get back to the plants at the rear for maintenance?

Do you have a favorite "filler" plant that you love to use everywhere?

I've been trying to go back through your archives, but I feel that there is so much to figure out before I tackle a neglected yard.

Thanks for all your inspiration!!

The Muse said...

mmm ok
IVY...
the care and training of said Beasty :) LOL

And oh goodness...we all get the cobwebs now and then!

momstheword said...

How about taking some pictures of your home and showing off your beautiful inner decorating. I loved the ones I saw when Busy was doing her thang around there.

BTW, I finally posted a picture of myself so if you want to see who you've been talking to pop on over!

Marilyn said...

Hi Tootsie, the hardest thing for me to do in the garden..is dig! Any tips on making that easier? I have thought of plonking soil on top of the grass..and putting a border..but I am sure there is an art to that even that I have just not seen. Marilyn

momstheword said...

I think you look gorgeous in your pictures! I have to figure out how to put photos on my sidebar.

BTW, I've had some people email who thought I was alot older with white hair....hehehe! I think that is so funny!

imjacobsmom said...

Hi Tootsie, It's just fun to hear from you now and then. It's just this time of year. I know you probably have grey skies and snow flurries like I do. At least you have your green house to escape too. Last night i was driving through a snowglobe and it was pretty - for about one minute! ~ Robyn

"Blossom" said...

Yes, I am smiling. And I did get a shower tonite. Love you Toots. You are something
girl.

onlymehere said...

This is off the gardening track but I would love to see some pictures of your town/neighborhood/country. I'd love to learn about some good old Canadian traditions, etc. In other words, I'd like to learn more about Tootsie!!

mishebe said...

Hey T, If you ever need someone to shoot the shit with or whatever email me cushman4153@gmail.com. Girl , I am a good listener and a strong advocate for us women. I will keep my mouth shut too. The only thing if you become famous and the National Enguirer comes calling me wanting some juice on you. I do have a shopping problem and a family to take care of.... just kidding. Just keep my email #, i am a late nighter too so don't hesitate. Mishelle

cindee said...

I love your blog and I stop by everyday(-: I am here to find the garbage bag planter instructions! I just received three baskets to plant in. The kind you fill with moss. So now I have much to do.(-:
I love all your stuff so anything you write about is fine with me!

Millie said...

With regard to your question re the Ukrainian Easter eggs, no, I have not seen that big one in Alberta.
Hope everything settles down a bit for you...

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Great idea that Gloria has! We need step by step instructions!

Also, when is the first time in your life that you can remember being super interested in plants?

Justine :o )

What are you favorite things to plant in the areas that get the least amount of sun and something that will bloom all summer?

"Blossom" said...

What is a tea pot bird feeder; do you have a picture?

Ashley ~ said...

Well, when I get back to my balcony in the highrise, I would love to think about container gardening. What veggies would work best in containers on a balcony facing south*? Does help your blogger block*? LOL* _Ashley*

Sassy said...

Nancy Jane said...

I need tips on fighting the rabbits and the deer. Wait until you see the pictures of the damage!
I'm starting with my spraying as soon as we get through our current rainy spell, but I need something that won't wash away! Help! Nancy

Bo said...

Hi Lil Tootsie...you don't have to post anything in particular...you are so loved in this community... just pop in & say "hi" whenever you find the time...that'll let us know you are still kickin'..
You are such a sweetheart! ;-) Bo
