Fertilizer Friday~~~ Flaunt Your Flowers!!!

Wooo Hoo!!! It's Friday!! Fertilizer Friday!!!
Grab your fertilizer and hit that garden...give those plants a kick in the roots!!!
When we are all done the feeding of the flowers...snap a few pictures and link up to Flaunt Your Flowers for Fertilizer Friday!!! Don't forget to take the FF Photo!!
Before we get started...I would like to thank you all for the sweet comments about my abscessed tooth. I was feeling a lot under the weather and in a huge amount of pain...I am no longer going back to the hospital every 12 hours for IV drugs...I am on an oral prescription now and will be having this tooth removed when the infection is all gone...the appt. is for the 6th of July.
Okay...now that we are ready...here's my offering this week...
My Peony is blooming! The one in the front is not yet.

Portulaca window box
Dahlia
garden beside the stairs
as requested...a weekly shot of the header bed...nice crop circle hey??? lol
Pale yellow Petunia
Tiger Lily almost blooming!
I thought this pot was garbage!!! seems to be catching nicely!
Okay...your turn. Link up and show us what you have blooming! I always find great ideas in your gardens!!!

will post and link in the morning, when it is actually Friday. When I saw this Fertilizer Friday post from you in my sidebar, my first thought was, "Get your arse back in the bed!" Glad you are somewhat better.........toothache is almost as bad, maybe worse, than labor pains!!!!!giggle girl it's good medicine!!!!!!!!!!

lilsista said...

you REALLY need to paint that bike white!!! You are wasting it's uniqueness because it is blending into it's surroundings too much! Don't make me come over there and take care of things! I will try to fertilize friday this time....really
bye!

Domestic Designer said...

Everything just looks lovely! Don't you just love Summertime? :-)

lilsista said...

Everything looks great!!

Justine said...

Holy cow woman, you never fail to amaze me! Just when I think your yard can't get any better, it does! That peony is so incredibly beautiful, and I remember portulacas growing in my nana's yard, right alongside her front pathway.
That potted arrangement? AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope your pain is WAY less today! Yippee on setting a date to have that bitch pulled!

Justine :o )

Tootsie... would you email me please.

Jacki said...

Wow, your lilies are gorgeous and I love the peony! My mom always refused to plant peonies because of the ants, and I just never thought of planting them myself. Her "dos and don'ts list" influenced me a lot, without my even thinking about it ... she never planted snapdragons either, and I finally planted them for the first time last year and I loved them! So, I decided to take the plunge with the peony too and I picked one up at Canadian Tire. I know they're supposed to be planted in the fall, but hopefully it will survive. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the pictures - your garden is always an inspiration!

Florida Sue said...

I am so glad that you are feeling better. You are way too sweet to have to go through such misery. Your flowers are so beautiful. That peony is so perfect. Everything just compliments everything else in such an artistic way. I can't wait to see your garden progress through the season.

XOSue.

Teresa~Gardening with Soule said...

Hello again! Love that peony. So pretty.And everything else is thriving as well. You do nice work. I posted mine a bit early too(early in the AM- I ought to be sleeping.) since I have busy plans for tomorrow. Sounds like you had a toothache. Sorry. Hope you are feeling better soon. Have a great day!

Outside In said...

Glad you are doing better, your garden is beautiful as usual! Happy FF!

Jessica said...

Tootsie~

I just love to see what's blooming in your gardens. I love peonies...I don't think they grow here. I love your window box and your pot ( last pic ) is amazing....magazine worthy. :)

Hope you are doing well.

Big hugs from the 3 of us~ J

Darla said...

Your flowers are looking great Tootsie! Dang, lilsista is giving it to you isn't she?

RainGardener said...

Tootsie I'm so sorry to hear about your tooth - been there and know how horribly painful it is!
I haven't been around - good gardening weather the beginning of the week and grandsons since Tuesday and I just can't do it all! LOL But did get my FF ready this morning!

Smilingsal said...

I'm glad that you're getting the treatment you need with that nasty tooth. It is true that they will not pull it until after the infection is gone.

Your garden is growing nicely, Mary, Mary, but of course you're not Contrary!

sue said...

Tootsie, do we really fertilize EVERY friday?? My verbena is not blooming as pretty as it was when I first purchased it, I've only fed it once. I had a peony thats probably old as the hills and it doesn't come back anymore. Portulaca is a fav of mine and I need to get some, your box looks awesome! I was a minute too late in grabbing an awesome old bike with basket at a fleamarket, a guy got it for 20.00!!! Grrrrr!!! I'm looking for one now!!! Hope you have a painfree weekend! xo

gardenerprogress/Catherine said...

It looks like your plants are really filling in. It looks great! That looks like the peony I have, I bet it smells delicious :)

Jennifer said...

Your gardens are beautiful. I have shamelessly linked myself, not because I have lovely gardens (yet), but because I need help identifying something growing in one of my beds. I hope someone will recognize them and tell me if it is a weed or a groundcover.

Shabby Cottage Collectibles said...

Your garden is beautiful! Warm wishes for a great weekend, Esther

Mary @ Framed and Tagged said...

Your garden is lovely but I especially love your peonies...I think I need to move mine so they'll get more sun.
Hope your toothache gets better and hope you have a great day!

Dirt Princess said...

I'm with your sister...paint the bike. paint it s fun color. I saw one recently that was three different colors. I will email you the pic, it looked GREAT! I am glad to see your yard so warm and sunny! It look GREAT!!! I do hope you are feeling better! Have a great weekend

raxx a day in the life said...

Hey Toots! I'm up and linked!! Every week I wonder why do I post, esp after seeing your amazing blooms! But you are so encouraging!

Looking great as usual, and that last pic! Goodness, just beautiful!!

Glad to hear your tooth got the attention it needed and that your pain is being managed!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Everything is looking perfectly weeded, and beautiful. What a colorful selection.

I am totally loving that portulaca window box, that is adorable.

Mary at My New 30 said...

Well, I went ahead and linked just to participate this week, though I have nothing new to show, so ya'll might want to skip me this week. I have some new plants but they have yet to get in the ground, but ... if you do stop by, I hope y'all get a kick out of my "beachy garden" LOL!

Have a great weekend everybody!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gorgeous flowers! I've been really busy and missed your news about your tooth. I'm so sorry you are having such trouble. I've been there - to the hospital for injections, trying to get the swelling and infection down, so I can sure sympathize with you! Glad you're doing better though. laurie

Betty said...

How pretty! You doing crop circles are you?
Hope you are having a great weekend.

Sassy said...

Ellie Mae's Cottage said...

Your garden is filling in really nicely. I love the window box and the garden clock. Sorry I couldn't participate this week - I've been on a business trip so didn't get a chance to get some pics of garden blooms. There's always next week! -Jackie
