Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Nov. 2/12

Copy_of_001
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...
It has been a long week here in Alberta Canada.   Winter weather…cold and snow.   Need I say more?
I have obviously got very little to share with you this week…so I thought I’d share some of the plants that I am considering growing this coming year in my greenhouse:
Along with most of the old favorites…I am looking at some new additions to the “family”
Here are some of those being considered.
2130
This is Venidium….I have never seen it or even heard of it before…I thought it was kind of pretty…it is a sunflower-like bloom from South Africa. They say it is easily grown…I guess we shall see about that!  ha ha !
Alternanthera purple knight
Alternanthera… not a new addition…but one I haven’t grown in a LONG time!
peach colored alyssum
I ususally grow Alyssum…and I think this year I shall try it in this Peach color as well as the usual ones I plant.
orange snap
OH!!!  I need to try this color of Snap Dragon!!!  How beautiful!
lime Green Petunia
I am absolutely going to try this lime green Petunia!
I am sure that while I am milling over the seed books, I will find other things that catch my eye…I am starting to become very excited for spring…I just wish we could skip this long long winter!
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!

Amazing how we just end the season and we are planning for the next. I know I am as well and I think it helps us get through that looooong winter.

Hi Glenda, I too have plans for what I shall plant next year, plus "design" ideas, etc. Gardening is something I think about (and/or DO) every single day! I'm obsessed!

Venidium is a new one for me, and it looks spectacular. Love the colour of that Snapdragon too.

Black Alternanthera? Oh i want it too in my garden!

Plans are the fun part of growing plants. That purple alternanthera is a good choice for beds that need a strong color and a sturdy plant -- it is great here but is great with big ol' rose bushes that need something around their ankles and would otherwise get weeds. Chartreuse alternanthera is my favorite, so well-behaved and shows up well.

I always mean to plant alyssum in other than white, maybe when you show the peach growing I'll remember.
