Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers April 2/10


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 are all welcome...the more the merrier!
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!
I would like to add, that if you are not a 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!
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.

Today I have much to share. I have been working my little fingers to the bone, and have seen some SPRING in my garden.027

The Hydrangea is a bloomin! 024

The Wandering Jew is blooming!!! Yippie!!! I have never coaxed one of these into bloom before…I am super excited!!!016

There were three spots that I found that had some blooms on them…it took forever to get a shot, as they only stay open a very short while…008

They close up within hours of first bud!


The greenhouse is GROWING!030

Things are popping up all over the yard. I have few perennials, but those I do have are waking up.031

Lilac is getting ready to burst!034


I think this one actually may make a second appearance this year! I thought it was dead.040

I was so excited to see a little green grass…041

Until I turned around…and saw this! EWE!!! Well…we best be fixin that!042

So out comes the lawn mower…the thatch blade gets installed…and we are off to the races!!!


A few sweeps later and the dead grass was flying…just laying there waiting to get picked up…063

What a HUGE difference! And that was just the first sweep! Nothing was even picked up yet…like the difference between good and evil!046

I go first up and down…then lower the blade again and go side to side…then I remove the thatch blade…and pick it up! I think the garbage man is going to resume his nasty looks at me when he comes next week. haha…he doesn’t like my yard waste much…too many bins! to be him! Oh my what a lot of work…I am exhausted…especially since before I started this grass project… 064

I ran my a$$ off out in the alley teaching my “Busy” to ride her bike with no training wheels!!!! I think my baby is growing up…and blooming!

Thank you to 'Georgie' for taking such great shots of the garden and ignoring directions not to shoot shots of me! seems that I can never be clean when I am featured in my own blog! Honest...I do shower! haha

So? what’s happening in your garden? Snap some shots, ADD THE ‘FF’ LOGO TO YOUR POST, link into the linky below and flaunt with me! Can’t wait to see!
