Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers June 11/10


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!

This has been a very rainy week in Alberta. We have had steady rains for the last 4-5 days…I caught over 100 millimeters in the rain gauge. So needless to say, that there isn’t much to flaunt this week in my gardens…but I am sharing a few things.


Waterlogged and long…the grass needs a mowing…I did spread fertilizer just before the rain started… so it is growing!!!


I am disgusted at the amount of chick weed that is growing all over in my gardens…I have could swear that it rained chick weed seeds….boy do I have a lot of weeding to do when I get a chance. UGH!


In my gardens I have a couple of hostas…this one is smaller …


this one is huge! They were both gifts from good friends…so it is nice to see them doing so well…it reminds me of the people who gave them to me when I look at them.


Check out my stump! I was on my way home last week and drove up on this beauty in the ditch. Oh heck ya I wanted it!!! It is almost three feet across!!! Perfect for a Toots to junk into the box of her truck…along with some “red gold” and head home.

The pots are doing okay considering how waterlogged they are right now…


Alyssum seems happy!…


My picnic basket of Sweet Potato Vine is happy enough too…I don’t know about the lobelia that I shoved in there…it may be the end for it…ha-ha.


These smell soooo good when walking up the steps into the house.

So what does a Tootsie do when she knows its going to be nasty outside?


She runs like a maniac and trims the hedge…then heads for the garage to play with her “red gold”.

“Red Gold”? you ask?? Allow me to elaborate…


Figure it out yet? Yep! It’s barn board!!! I am almost finished building this bench…it is going to look like the one I built a few years go. Just needs a couple little bird house roofs on the pickets and it will be good to go! I don’t know what I’ll do with it. Might find someone to give it to.

There is more of that wood in the garage…but with Dad being so sick…and the weather being what it is…I have not had time to play with it. When I am done building something guys will be the first to know! Ha-ha.

Anyways…that’s it for me this week. I am off tomorrow to see my Dad again. Mom is looking forward to us coming too. It’s just a day trip…but it will be fun to see them. I will be around to visit all the Fertilizer Friday participants this week…I hope. I will also be posting an update on my Dad as soon as I have news. Thanks to all of you guys for the thoughts and prayers you offered for my Dad and my family. They meant more to us all than we can ever say.

Okay…lets get snappin!!! Postin…and FLAUNTIN!!!!!!

Have a safe and happy weekend!
