Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers April 23/10


Okay!!! It’s Friday again already and that means it’s time to flaunt our flowers, gardens and all things green!

Now if you are not familiar with the rules of this little party…here they are;

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!

Your post must include the logo above and a link to Tootise Time, or the linky will be deleted. I don’t mean to be harsh, but there have been a lot of people linking in and when the participants graciously click over to their blogs, there is no sign of Fertilizer Friday anywhere to be found. This is not fair to those who do follow the rules, therefore…well you know!

So? what are you waiting for? Get outside, feed, water, snap and post!

This week has been a warm one here in central Alberta Canada, and the greenhouse has been HOT! Things are doing VERY well…lets take a look:001

Just a couple of weeks ago, they were all so small that the pots looked HUGE…but now…


Its like the Flower Fairy showed up!006

Yep! She sure did!!!


The Marigolds are like a tiny forest with pretty yellow puffs!


I will be lowering the second row of pots tomorrow…so things have room to grow!!!


Portulaca is growing like a weed!


Things are finally feeling like a jungle!!! I love the feeling of jungle…


Grammie “B”s flowers are taking up valuable space….hint hint…might have to give them a bit of a trim…or she could just plant them…or something….hint hint…*)


Last week everyone was posting beautiful Wisteria…so I searched high and low for one for me! LOOK!!! now…I need YOUR help…will I be able to grow it in the greenhouse??? There is one in the yard already for the last 4 years…and it is only 1/2 size….not playin games here…I want what you guys posted!!! and I want it NOW!

Wanna see what’s happening today out in the yard?


Yesterday these were so tight that they didn’t show much green…but today the Lilac is getting ready to burst!!!


And Tootsie does the dance of Joy!!!


I love the very first day when there is a hint of green in the horizon…the hedge leaves are popping open..! woo hoo!!


Columbines are well on their way…some of these are going to Grammie “B”s and to Niffers house very soon…they don’t get a say…I decide the gardening needs around here…hahaha! Niffer is one of my bestest friends…and she has decided to spruce up her yard…and I get to be the boss!!!


I’m thinkin some Monkshood will be traveling across town to Niffer’s house too…hey…she said I can do whatever I want…and I will! Can’t wait to show you what’s planned…it will be sensational when it’s done!


The leaves on the ornamental apple are doing well…open quite a bit! I am impressed at the progress in the front yard especially since it is not as warm as the back…

Everything is growing…popping out of the ground…and springing to life! It is a great feeling to go outside and see all the new growth…well almost all of it…


This…I could do without…I’m already weeding and I haven’t even planted yet!

Oh well…it’s better than winter!

Now…it’s your turn…what’s growing in your gardens? I can’t wait to see…hit the linky, leave me a comment…and I will meet you there!
