Wow - this sounds like alot of fun Toots! I'd join up but sadly I haven't started anything yet. Not surprising given the climate we've been having in this part of the country. No Spring at all! Nope, we're gonna go straight from Winter to Summer here. And it's been rain, rain, rain for weeks! Yuck. I'll check in with everybody else's gardens though (while rubbing salt in my wounds!!!)

Tootsie,

I would love to do this next week (If I get anything planted by then!). This was just a little short notice. It has a catchy name though!! ;-D

Have a great weekend!

Good idea! Wish I'd taken before pictures of a rose bush that wasn't planted last year & was given to me a few weeks ago. It was pitiful & looked almost dead! A little pruning & some systemic rose fertilizer & it's growing like crazy!

I just gave my son 4 inside plant fertilizer sticks for his house plants a little bit ago. We're on the same wavelength! ☺ Diane

Oh I'll try and do it next week Tootsie. Sounds like fun and also a learning curve for novice gardeners like me.

Thanks for being a great hostess! Looking foward to next week!

Justine said...

Well damn, I just discovered that Strudel took over my blog today, so I can't join in. Well, that and I just posted some of my flowers on Wednesday. And plus, I really don't have much growing.
Hey, do those Miracle Gro sprinkle things count as fertilizing?

Justine :o )

onlymehere said...

Toots, without even knowing about this I posted about tulips today, LOL! Does it count that they're not my tulips? They're still beautiful. Have a great weekend!

Betty said...

Everyone's flowers look so great. This was a great idea Tootsie!

"Blossom" said...

This is a great idea. Talk about watering your plants when you are out of town. Coke bottles, lol.
You did good girl better than me with Mr. Linky. I had troubles this morning I did a delayed posting and this morning the Mr. Linky was all wrong .......it didn't post right. Oh, well. Happy Firday Fertilize!!!!!!!

What a great idea - can't wait to visit everybody's blogs and see all the flowers!!

Off to fertilize my own now.

No problem since we are dreaming this week; post a new trailer and go big. We can dream right, and since you are going camping that is even better. Don't you worry about it and I want you and the kids to have a wonderful time camping this week-end!!!!!!! thing about you.

RainGardener said...

Tootsie this is great. I tried signing up for one of these thingies once and didn't finish because I was stumped on the next step so consequently I've never ended up joining any. But as soon as something is bloomin' up here I plan on figuring them out so I can join yours! In the meantime I did go ahead and take your pic and give you a link at the top of my side column anyway - even if I'm not there. ;-(

Hi Tootsie~
Thanks for the invite!
What a great idea! I must say that your garden is fabulous! It reminds me of a Monet painting. So many beautiful colors!
Happy day~

I ever so love being outdoors!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Wow! Look at all of those beautiful hanging pots! I can't wait to see them hanging. laurie

Mama said...

Beautiful hanging baskets Tootsie, I hope I can join in next week as my flowers have come on in leaps and bounds since I read here that I should be feeding and fertilzing EVERY week, I was so hit and miss before, well my plants thank you hehe, my hubby even calls it fertilizer friday now. happy weekend, Kathy.

xinex said...

Beautiful flowers as usual, Toots. I'll join ya when I get back home...Christine

Pinky said...

HI Tootsie! I am so glad I found your blog and I just became a "follower"! I do have one question right off the bat: we have something in our yard that a "friend?" gave me and it is HORRIBLY invasive and we want to get rid of it. It is called hootintania, I think that is how you spell it. It runs on underground roots so we have sprayed and sprayed to no avail. We even dug up an entire BIG bed, went through it by hand and THOUGHT we got it all...........we didn't. So.....any suggestions!???? I am in awe of your gardens and FLOWERS!!!!!!!! I wish so much I could come visit you to see how you do all this! Til later....hugs, Pinky PS, if I post my flowers on RMS can I link them to your blog? I do that for Susan's at Between naps on the porch. Thanks!

Hi Tootsie,

We're still trying to clean up from winter,:( I hope to get some annuals planted this week. With all the rain we've had, we now have Moss growing everywhere.

You might remember me asking if anyone knew what kind of a rose we had growing, I posted a picture last year. This year the bush is humongous and full of buds, I'll take pictures when they bloom.

FYI...The plants and my Avocado tree,didn't do well at all in our enclosed, 'unheated,' porch over the winter. I lost my 8 year old, Avocado tree that I grew from a pit.
Maybe I'll grow a new one.

Hugs
'D'

bj said...

Omigosh...this sounds like so much fun and I am so going to enjoy all you talented ladies growing flowers. There is no way in h** I would EVER get into this meme...my poor, little pitiful flowers would PALE even more beside yours.
Oh, but how I will love looking at yours!!
hugs, bj

Cathy said...

Tootsie,

You thought it looked horrible before...wait till I figure out how to send my pics to you!! There's a whole new chapter in gardening don'ts for you to focus on in your blog!! ...you're welcome! Maybe my yard can become a new project for you...I believe it has been compared to the aftermath of some terrible natural disaster...(my kids?!!???!!)lol! P.S. Don't expect to get paid either!;) lol!
