Flaunt Those Flowers...Fertilizer Friday!

Happy Friday! Get busy guys...it is feeding day! Grab your fertilizer...get that hose...and get busy...don't forget the houseplants too! I use a Miracle Gro hose adaptor to make my watering faster and easier...I would not make it if I had to mix in a watering can....just add the powder to the canister and it mixes it for me!
After you have fed those plants...link up with my first photo...add yourself to Mister Linky at the bottom of this post and share with us all that is blooming, or thriving in your garden!



My pots are coming along nicely.

Justine!! Your peppers are getting a little color!!!
Here's the header bed...that bike...has always been there...just gets covered some times..lol
My big bike bed...seems that the beds are taking forever to catch this year...

I added those plant stands this year...there used to be a bench there.
The garden "room" shelf plants are getting bigger...

My apple tree is doing great! And things are still alive for the most part in that bed...well, what the stray cat didn't pull out....
My orange geranium is blooming!!!
Now to use this Linky...you will need to click on the Linky box and it will take you to the screen you will need to link up. Mister Linky is a little off the last two weeks...so hopefully it will work for us this week!

Hey Tootsie - I'm not ignoring ya just having a hard time catching up with being sick and then the death of all my flowers by way of DEER - or is that DAMN DEER! Not really death but may as well have been.
Your flowers are sure looking good - love the decorative stones ya did - that is super!
Will be here tomorrow though. Gonna do my post now while it's too hot to go outside. I finally have lots blooming thanks to this horribly hot weather. See ya.

Girl! Your stuff is blooming more than mine! and I'm in the south! Some of the daylilies are opening and a few of cone flowers but we've had rain all day today! which saved me from dragging the hose around the yard! I wish I had 1/2 your energy! God Bless! Lauralu :)

Hey Tootsie, Thanks for the welcome to Blogland. I am always in aww of your flowers. You truly are an inspiration. Hope all is well in Canada hope to spend many more Fertilizer Fridays with you and the blogging family.

whoops forgot to put my name on my comment above, Your friend and the souther garden in the northwest

momstheword said...

Ummmm, sorry but I really don't think you want to see the weeds that are growing in my garden, sigh. But yours looks lovely!

momstheword said...

You can do it however you want, it's your list and your project. If you want pictures, you can but you don't have to. I don't plan on posting pictures on mine (at least, not this time). So do how you want!

I was going to link to the old list you posted earlier, but if you're doing a new list I'll post to that one.

The list will come on Saturday, and it will be a link to your blog post and your name, and every one else who is participating in the cleaning challenge will be on it too. So fun to have you!

Shelia said...

Hi Tootsie! Everything is looking so pretty! I love your bike bed! I've planted some annuals this year and they don't look so good and my knock out roses aren't blooming! I cut off the dead heads and that's seemed to have stopped the blooms! I'm not too good, I guess!
Be a sweeie,
Shelia ;)

I think your gardens look very pretty. I really like the iris. Thanks for reminding me about the miracle grow hose thing. I think I've got one around here somewhere. I'm going to try to remember to join in next week.

Mary at My New 30 said...

Everything looks great Tootsie!! I just finally got here and posted my link - running late as usual! I cannot get over how fast your grass transitions.

Off to visit the rest of the FF flaunters! Have a great weekend.

momstheword said...

Love you gardens and wish I could add my Fertilize Friday to it. I think this is going to be a learning experience for me - I can see there's a lot of new things I can do.

CJ in Utah said...

Hi Tootsie--got to you from Mary at My New 30--both of you have beautiful yards!! Can REALLY identify with the neighbor and cat problems. I'm a cat lover, big time, but don't like them using my yard as their potty, so I started burying chicken wire about one-half inch below the surface of the bed. The flowers find their way through the holes (and, you can plant smaller starts in the holes) but the great thing is the cats really don't like the wire and go elsewhere. Good Luck, CJ

Crafty Gardener said...

Tootsie, your garden is looking spectacular. I've added my post about the poppies.

momstheword said...

Oh, that's awesome! I will try and grab the link after it posts, so that I can have the most up-to-date one for my blog post (I'll be up late tonight anyway) tomorrow.

If I don't get it, I can always update the link tomorrow and exchange out the old one for the new one.

Have a great rest of the evening my friend! Hope you're feeling better!
