Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Oct30/09

Here we are again....Friday. The end of a work week for some...the beginning of a garden party for the rest of us!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors!
Now...if you are not familiar with the winter rules here...you will be...since I have ZERO to share...my gardens are bare...I (and other gardeners in similar climates) are sharing our favorite photos from months, gardens, years gone by. Those who have real live beauty to share are doing that!
So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
Todays entry for me is a real blast from the past.
The year is 2005....and these are my large pots! (my how things change)
I spent two days making a small pathway to my greenhouse...
There it is...so little...this is the original that we moved on a truck to move to this house...I was not moving without it!
Later that summer...we added 8 more feet to the original 8X8 foot structure which was heated by electric space heaters....and the windows...were from Nana's old place. Oh how I loved my rickety old greenhouse....I miss it so. We had to tear it down when we go the new one...it was loaded with black mold which was part of the mystery illness that nearly killed this old Toots...
The side of the garden along the fence
Garden beside the back stairs.
In the front yard along the side of the house...
Look how teeny the vines were!!! lol...
Funny how things change that we don't really notice until we look back in our photos!
Now...please accept my invitation to grab the top photo and link back to me...also put your link in the mister linky below! I can't wait to see what you all share this week!

I like this arrangement with many many colours especially the red and blues. The blue is very very blue, it is striking. Happy Fertilizer Friday to everyone!

Teresa said...

It's like seeing a picture of your kids when they were little. You don't see the changes every day but when you look at how they started and compare to now, it is amazing! It looked great even back then. That is like an after photo for most. Have a Happy Halloween and weekend.

Tootsie...your yard is beautiful as always...and mine misses me something terrible! The winds have made the worst mess of everything...but at least it is cool. Happy Halloween to you! :)

Barbara said...

Tootsie, I know you are sad with no flowers, everything at my house is blooming again, since we got so much rain and the weather has been warm until today.

Happy Halloween!
Barbara

Beautiful Tootsie, I believe you have inspired several of us to concentrate on more containers for next season....!

Lori said...

SmilingSally said...

Your yard of the past is drop-dead gorgeous, but I'd like to see what you're seeing now as you walk outside.

cindy said...

Lovely flowers...(I'm jealous). In answere to your question...I did NOT sell all of the pumpkins...only about 5! I may just give them away today...

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

It's fun looking back at old garden pictures. I wish I would've taken more. I love all the bright colors you had. It's fun seeing how much things grow, your vines are quite a bit bigger now!

xinex said...

Hi Toots! How I wish I could make my garden even just half as nice as yours...Christine

Together We Save said...

You have a beautiful lawn and garden!! Wow you are talented.

Justine said...

Wow, I was kind of stunned to see the vines at the front of your house, knowing what they looked like this summer. And wow, that first shot with all that purple was amazing!

Justine :o )

Your flowers are so beautiful, such colors! And everything is so neat. Our yards are like the rain forest, even when the DH cuts them back (I hate it when he does that). Thanks for everything. Peace. B : )

Erin said...

Sorry I'm late, Tootsie, but it is still Friday. I love seeing the progression of your garden and your old greenhouse was pretty cute! I hadn't thought about making mine cute on the outside (I wasn't there yet...hmmmm!)

Patricia said...

You have the most gorgeous flowers and gardens of anyone I know. Even with fertilizer mind never look as good as yours. you have a special gift, Thank you for sharing with us. Your garden and flower pictures always bring a smile to my face.

Trick or treet !!! I found some large pale yellow panseys at home depot and just love them. I planted a few at the shop and some at the house this week. Don't they do well in winter up there? Just about everyone has a few here. Then in the Spring they just take off. LOL Kathy
