Welcome to Fertilizer Friday!!! Today is the day we all get together and flaunt our flowers!
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 will be...since I have ZERO to 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!
So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!

Wonderful seed list! I'm starting to look through catalogs now too and the new ones for spring 2010 should be out soon. The only thing I'd add to that list are Cosmos. I love cosmos and they always do so well in my garden.

Always a joy to look at your photos. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Ev

You have so many varieties of seeds. I'm sure the garden will be just as beautiful next spring. Happy Fertilizer Friday! My FF this week is clitoria ternatea.

lynn'sgarden said...

Not much to show in my garden...except mums and some odds and ends. What do we do for FF throughout the winter??
Nice seed list you've started, Tootsie!

Hi Tootsie, had a hard time linky in this AM. I don't have any flowers so I put in a story I had written for my granddaughters using their names as flowers.

onlymehere said...

I wish I had some flowers to flaunt! I have this cold white stuff all over my yard right now and flowers don't really like it! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

"Blossom" said...

Toots, that awesome that you posted the list for us that you are thinking about. Are most of these sun and some shade? Are some better for pots than the flower garden? Have a great week-end.

Randy said...

I never tire of seeing your garden! My looks realllllly bad right now.

The JR said...

If you where here, you would win yard of the month so much all the other garden ladies would be sad.

Amazing yard, so very very pretty.

Hi Tootsie Wootsie! I always love seeing your lovely garden. That's quite a list of seeds! Have a wonderful weekend.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

I am always amazed at all the gorgeous flowers in your garden. Love all the hanging planters and everything is just beautiful. Hope you have a super weekend. Hugs, Marty

Brenda Pruitt said...

You have the most lush garden and green yard I think I've ever seen! You must truly have the gift of the green thumb! I am just amazed by the photos.

Lona said...

Your list making sounds like mine Tootsie. With every catalog I go through marking and checking off things and then reality strikes and sadly I have to really thin it down.
Your garden is just so pretty. I never get tired of looking at all the flowers you have in it. With envy of course ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend.

First time I've seen your blog and the photos of your earlier garden are gorgeous. It's so hot here we couldn't grow such a lovely garden or lawn as you have.

What gardening talent! I never tire of looking at your beautiful photos. I was just looking at Stokes Seeds and I see that they have a new variety of snapdragon called "Aromas" in various colors. They are supposed to last longer and they have stronger stems. Also I noticed a new Armeria that blooms the first year from seed. I am glad to see that you have quite a list and are looking ahead. I can't wait to see what you turn out next summer. I have a feeling it is going to be a great year..


Teresa~ Gardening with Soule said...

Thanks for the few minutes to enjoy that lovely yard of yours on a sunny day! Your seed list is very ambitious. I guess I ought to get thinking ahead also. Thanks for the inspiration.

Bonnie said...

Your gardens are so gorgeous, and your list is pretty amazing. Love your blog. I read and enjoy every post.

Darla said...

GORGEOUS!!!! as are an inspiration Tootsie!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I finally got my post done. The weather has been horrible and we've been really busy.

I love seeing these sunny summer pictures. It looks like 2007 was a great year in your yard. I feel warm just looking at all the flowers in the sun.
You've got a great list going, can't wait to see how they all look next summer.

Becca's Dirt said...

What a list. Do you really plan to plant all of those? I think your gardens are always beautiful.

Erin said...

I've never said so before, but I love how you incorporate your flowers outside your greenhouse, too. It makes the entire yard look beautiful, rather than having the greenhouse remain separate.

Maureen said...

Beautiful! I am so envious of your greenhouse. Maybe one day when I grow up....

Thoughtfully Blended Hearts said...

I think you have your bases covered with your plant seeds!!! You are so ambitious and I am so jealous...
Loved the shots...they were new to me since this is my first year blogging...
Have I told you how much I enjoy this is a lot of fun and different from anything else in blogland.

Justine said...

Ooh, look at all those seeds you're already planning on buying! Exciting to think about.

So, how was your night out with the girls???

Justine :o )

linda may said...

G'Day, What a good year that was for your garden.
Oh! I want that glass house.
It all looks so neat and tidy in your yard. You must get more and better reliable rain fall than we do in this country.
Do you grow from seed each year.
I know all the plants on your list except for the Bacopa. Amazing that on the other side of the world we all like the same stuff eh!

deb said...

I never tire of seeing youtard...past or present!
Great list. Heliotrope is suppose to be really vanilla I think. Let us know if it is :~)
Sorry I missed this week...but intermitant internet will do that to ya! LOL Hope it's fixed for good now.
Have a great day
