Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers May 7/10


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!

I have not been online at all this past week because my internet went down and I had no way to get back to anyone! My sincerest apologies go out to you all who participated in FF last week that I did not get around to visit. I am still working my way through the list of emails to reply to as many as I can. I am so happy to have my internet back up and running, the withdrawl was killing me!

This past week we have had rain, snow and strong winds…it has been winter here again…and it is supposed to be cold for a few more days! HELLO? SPRING? THIS IS TOOTSIE CALLING!!! I NEED TO GET MY PLANTS OUTSIDE TO HARDEN OFF!!! HELLLLOOO!!!!

Anyways…here’s what is happening in the greenhouse this week…I bet you are all getting very sick of looking at it!


Squeeze the door open and this is the scene… It’s full in there.


A view from the top of the ladder…Now, lets do the rest a little different…This week, I am going to show some blooms.


Portulaca getting ready to burst…there are lots blooming already but this was the closest to me…ha-ha.


Coleus is so pretty, that the leaves are like pretty blooms all in themselves. They are getting huge… and need new pots…OR for Mother Nature to smarten up!!!


My Loofah…well I think it might be mad at me again. There are more white speckles on the leaves again…is this maybe due to a cool draft? Not sure…but will figure it out.


White Bacopa in bloom.


Another foliage favorite…Dusty Miller. Their leaves are just starting to take their lacy form.


Salmon Geranium. Two perfect balls!


Purple Wave Petunia.


Blue Wave Petunia.


White Wave Petunia.


Cherry Wave Petunia.


Silver Wave Petunia.


I love the way these ones start out…


This one is open….and it is HUGE compared to the other wave petunias.

Well, that’s all for this old gal this week. I am looking forward to getting around to everyone and seeing what they are up to. Again…I am sooooo sorry that I didn’t get around last week…I have NEVER missed a week of visiting my participants and I feel terrible! Good thing gardeners are gentle creatures and are so good at forgiving! (right?)

Thank you all for linking in and flaunting with me again this week. I will be around to see you all as soon as I can! Have a safe and happy weekend!
