Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Jan29, 2010

Hey Guys!!! Its Friday!!! We ALL know what that means now don't we? Yep!!!
IT'S TIME TO FLAUNT OUR FLOWERS!!!!
Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors!
If you are new to this party...WELCOME!!! If you are a regular...WELCOME BACK! Anyone can post plants of any kind...you are all welcome...the more the merrier!
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, or the current indoor gardens and houseplants that they have. Those who have real live beauty to share are doing just that!
I would like to add, that if you are not a fertilizer...you may still join in. The name Fertilizer Friday actually was coined to remind those of us who like to feed our greens, but forget! Fertilizing is not a must...but the flaunting...IS!
So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
Before we get started with all the flaunting...I need to remind you guys about the GIVEAWAY I am having this week. Today is the very LAST DAY TO ENTER....so for the details...please click here, and you will get the nitty gritty about how to get your name in the draw. The winner of the wonderful little garden sign featured in my sidebar will be announced on Saturday morning!!!
I have been doing a little more browsing on the More Mailboxes, CSN Stores, and Outdoor Lighting and More sites....(our giveaway sponsor sites) and LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!!!Guys...it brought tears to my eyes...just thinking about how wonderful this trellis would look on the front of my greenhouse around the door....it would be the finishing touch!!! I have tried to stand a trellis on the ground in front...but the wind made it rub...and the area is not quite big enough for a wide one to stand. I had all but given up...when I clicked on this...and I THINK IT'S PERFECT!!!
What do you think?...
Yep....I have to agree with you!!! I need to order it. (and I will as soon as I am certain that I am not moving!)
I am missing summer...and since not one of the 300+ Geraniums have sprouted yet...I thought I'd share a couple of favorite photos from seasons past...
My bike bed...Not sure why, but this one reminds me of Betty...
I think I will go for the Dusty Miller border again this year...I liked it. Makes the other colors pop!
Okay...that's all I have...so I want to see LOTS from you! Get busy...feed (or don't) and FLAUNT!!!

Please Publish the Fertilizer Friday Logo at the top of this post, and link into the mister linky list below. If you do not do this, you may not get as many "tourists" visiting your Friday post. AND.....Don't Forget!!!....there is also THREE bonus entries for every one who links in and joins me for Fertilizer Friday this week....so lets get busy ladies and gents....this is going to be fantastic! I will see you on Saturday the 30th to announce the draw winner!!!

NEXT WEEK.....
I have so many different flowers to plant...I just can't wait to get them all in...I will share the different names later this week...as well as an update on my friend's furniture and whole house make over that I am involved in...and...a very exciting project that I have been playing with. But that's all next week...for today we have flower gardens to tour!!!
Wishing you a safe and happy weekend...
Toots!

hey guys...I am still trying to get around and comment to you all...especially those who have been to my posts this week! Hang with me...I am just not finding enough hours in a day these last few weeks!

Teresa said...

Hey Tootsie. I love that trellis. It would blend your green house into your yard and it is so pretty.

The Muse said...

...visit when you can...it is always open, this Muse door :)

Wowzers...that is a great arch, you have to get it!

CiNdEe said...

300 geraniums? Yikes. They probably just take a little longer to sprout! Don't give up(-:
Not much happening here. I was hoping to be able to share my new violet but it has not opened up yet. Its been so slow! Maybe tomorrow when I wake up it will be blooming(-: Happy FF

Together We Save said...

Love the trellis.... your pictures are beautiful, as always.

Cathy said...

Ok..last year I found your blog as summer was wasting away. This year I am ready. I bought some seeds the other day and want to get started. Can you or do you have a post where you explain when, how to start seeds? Right now I am more concerned about starting veggies but I know it's a bit too early.. I guess flowers on the other hand should be okay.

Troy said...

That arch would look especially good with my sign and outdoor lighting!

I actually included some current pics of my garden this week. It rained and the snow melted, so I ran outside with the camera and took some pics.

As always, Thanks for hosting.

Hortist said...

Great job Tootsie.....I like your trellis and especially the work you are doing......I really appreciate your passions........please keep it up, have a nice day :)

Cathy said...

Ok..nevermind my question about tips.. I found them. Thanks.. I am going to get busy gathering my supplies and will get back with you. I told my yard last year that one day when it grows up it will look like yours.. or I hope.

Bren said...

Girl .... you are on it! I LOVE that trellis. That would look amazing around any door.

I will stop back tomorrow when the sun comes up to share some little bloooms from my greenhouse. I added you to my 'Gardens that Inpsire' becuase you truly inspire all those who come in contact with you.
((HUGS)) and Happy Friday!

Dusty Miller border - love it. I bought one recently, didnt know its name (now I do!). Yes, only one, coz my little balcony is small...

Love the trellis - cant wait to see your magic!

Sue said...

That trellis is GORGEOUS!!!
I ran right over to Amazon and ordered one.....hate to be a copycat but WOW!! I can't wait to see yours up on your greenhouse!!
Have a wonderful week-hope your geraniums pop up soon....it's so exciting, isn't it?
:)

Darla said...

You know you are just about to get an email right? Thanks for linking me in Toots....I love your winter seed starting, last year I was amazed - this year I'm sitting here with pen and paper....Thanks for sharing your secrets!

Order it - it's heaven! You can use it if you move.

Jessica said...

Hi gorgeous~

I think your geraniums will sprout any day now and that trellis made me stop in my tracks...lol. It's perfect.....you are going to order it aren't you?

I have a note from the postman that I have a parcel at the post office. I plan on going this morning right after my re-check at the dentist.

Hugs to you!!!

Darla said...

Okay Mailboxes and More...love the Hummingbird Curbside Mailbox...mailboxes are pricey, for now I'll cover my ugly one in a Clematis vine!!

onlymehere said...

That trellis looks like it was designed for you! Perfect. I didn't realize those were called Dusty Miller but I think you're right and they do make the flowers pop. You are the queen, no wonder you like crowns, lol! Have a great weekend!

kclily said...

I think you are right. The trellis will make the greenhouse look beautiful. And I love the duty miller border.

The Japanese Redneck said...

That arch would definately be the kicker for your greenhouse.

Moving, my heart would break at the thought of leaving your beautiful yard.

Becca's Dirt said...

I love the garden with the dusty miller around the bed and the shape of the bed is gorgeous. Have a great weekend.

Sonia said...

Wow Tootsie..

You are an awesome planting machine...300 geraniums!! WoW!
I've gone to the sites you have linked and enjoyed the wonderful dishes and that garden arch you love is to die for!! I think it will be beautiful over your greenhouse door!

I'm covered in snow,sleet and ice at the moment...so snug as a bug in a rug at home today!

Miss Bloomers

P.S. I LOVE your new button!!! I'm going to grab it!

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Tootsie, moving???
That is such a wonderful trellis and you are right it is a must have for your greenhouse. I liked that one and the Royal Arbor with the Bench. I could just see it in my back yard. LOL!
Happy FF Day!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I got distracted by CSN before commenting. I love the Brass Baron Gardening Fairy Fountain, it would look so cute by my pond.
I can't imagine having 300 geraniums! Will you be planing them all? Your pictures of them are so pretty and summery.
Yes, that arbor would look perfect on your greenhouse!

RainGardener said...

OOOoooooo I love that trellis. I want one too. I haven't entered your drawing yet, hate to seem stupid but wasn't sure where we were suppose to tell you at. Let me go read it again (for the 14th time - crap nothing sinks in lately).

Maureen said...

Your garden looks beautiful and the Dusty Miller really is the crowning glory. The colours just pop!

RainGardener said...

I really like the Arboria Heritage Grand Entry Arbor. It would look great at the top of my bloomin' stairs and think of the Clematis' I could put on it. One over each stairway. YES!!!

Hi Toots, love the trellis...have a great weekend...Pat H

Justine said...

Ack, I wanna see all the other stuff you're working on too! And yep, I think the dusty miller really does make all the other colors pop like crazy.

That trellis is sooooooooooo gorgeous! Couldn't you also use it over your front door? Oh wait, you have an overhang, don't you. Anyway, yes, order it!!!!

And hey, if you have any scattered, scrambled thoughts, try and join in on my Sunday Scramble this week!

Love,
Justine :o )

Carla said...

Thanks for hosting us! I needed a spring fix:) LOVE this trellis. I agree you must get it. AND you must post pictures of it when its up:) Do you use an edging of some sort for your beds, or do you just cut them in? LOVE the star shape, very cool girl, very cool:)

Debbie said...

Thanks for putting a lift to hearts with the wonderful dreams of things to come.

Alea said...

What a lovely arch. I will probably be moving in 1 -2 years, so I will keep this in mind for my forever house!

Bren said...

I am back... and I brought a bloom for you! ((HUGS))

artis1111 said...
