Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Oct.12/12
GET READY!!!! IT IS FRIDAY!!! FRIDAY IS FLAUNTING DAY!!! I am so glad you stopped by!
Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me…there is no one else here…lol) It’s a big deal because it means it’s PARTY TIME!!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day of the week than an ELITE group of gardeners from all around the world get together, snap photos, link up and Flaunt Their Flowers!!!
If you are new to Tootsie Time and Fertilizer Friday, I just know you are asking yourself…”How do I join?”
Well…it’s easy really. Here’s all you need to know to become a part of this great group of gardeners, bloggers and friends:
If it is spring or summer where you live, you need to snap a few photos of what you have growing, blooming or just love to look at that is of the plant variety…if it is winter where you live, you may post past favorite photos…or indoor plants…whatever you like. The only criteria is that it is a plant or something growing! You do not need to use fertilizer to participate in this party, but if you do, this is the reminder to fertilize weekly! All I ask is that: Your post must include the logo above and/or a link to Tootsie Time, or the linky will be deleted.
So....I would like to invite each and every one of you to join in and share your photos...
This week I have nothing nice to say about my garden…nothing. I suppose I could be looking at the future plans for it…but I have not one nice thing to say about the current view I have in my yard…
Why??? Well… funny you should ask…This is WHY:
It’s all gone.
Just a few perennials standing alone and sad.
It is sure an empty looking garden!
Not such a pretty sight anymore!
Seems so bland without all the colors of spring and summer cheering it up.
We got some COLD weather in this area this week. SNOW fell…and lucky for us it didn’t stay. Many parts of Alberta got LOTS of snow…and it stayed!
I am glad I got the winter floor into the greenhouse when I did…
The heat is officially turned on in there and it is LOADED with tropicals and a few other things that I am wintering for myself, Grammie, and a girlfriend.
In the back yard, I left a couple of things up against the house. I wanted to get the seed off of them before I pull them.
The Malvas are LOADED with seeds.
I suppose if I had to say one nice thing about my garden this week…
…I would have to say at least my grass is still super green!
It is supposed to warm up again for next week…a little bit. I want to move a few of my garden junk/ornaments into shelter for the winter so that they last longer for me. If it is warm enough and I feel up to it, that is my plan!
Winter season is now officially started in Tootsie’s Gardens…I guess it is back to the nostalgic looks into the photo files for me from now on! (sniff sniff…do you feel sorry for me yet?)
Okay kids…that is all for me for this week…now it is your turn.,,,
What are you waiting for??? Get flaunting!
I wish all of you hugs and smiles, and safe and happy weekend plans! Thank you all so much for dropping in today, and to those that faithfully link in to this party…and who are patient while waiting for me to finally visit you…THANK YOU!
Until Next Time... Happy Gardening!
