Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers June 18/10


Well HELLOOOOO There!!!

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 it has not been as rainy here in Alberta Canada as it was all the last couple of weeks, but…it has not been all that warm outside…and the clouds overhead have threatened rain on us. I am happy to say that I am seeing some growth in the garden…check it out:


I managed to get this bed weeded…it was so full of chick weed that it filled an entire garbage can! Kinda seems bare…ha-ha.


I did a quick run out to the country …found a farmer’s field that had the rocks picked and all set off in the ditch…loaded up…and did up my fountain. Yes…those are fake plants…for now…(don’t tell anyone k?) ha-ha…I am a little ashamed to admit it. I do have a plan though…and the fakes will be replaced very soon.


My pots seem to have bounced back nicely so far…some are a little spindly on the outside…but get up close and they are loaded with new growth just waiting for a few warmer days to burst on the scene. This one sports my new variety of snap dragon…


They are in there…I swear! I am excited to see how they perform this year…if they do well they may just be the new trailer for lots of my hanging baskets next year!


This basket is just Alyssum only. It smells fantastic!


The dinner plate Dahlia (lower right) is doing well…I have 5 of them this year. The rest of the pots on the bench have decided to make a grow for it too…whew! I was worried!


I hung some lights in the “room”…where things seems to be quite happy…


I don’t remember the color…or the name of this rose…but she seems happy enough…just loaded with blooms. She was part of a blooms for the cure of breast cancer campaign…I am anxious to see what color…ha-ha…seriously… I can’t remember!


Flowering Kale…that I thought had bitten the bucket…woo hoo!!! it’s doing well.


Everything in here is doing well …I just love this area. I think it’s because it’s new…and I painted the BBQ for spite…hee hee! (eat your heart out…You know who you are!!! ha-ha)


The sunburn on the large planters had taken a toll on the plants…but they seem to have forgotten all about that…and are locked and loaded for a big growth spurt!


Three little pots… the stairs to the house…smell soooooo good! (and they are bushy too!)


My window boxes…


I was cleaning out the greenhouse and came across this old tool belt. It is useless…very hard and crunchy…not easy to wear at all anymore…so…I planted it! I kinda like it!


I haven’t shared the front yard much lately. I was afraid that since I gave the englemans ivy a hard cutting…that it would not come back nicely at all. I was wrong…Thank goodness!!! It just needed to be tamed!

Well…that’s all I am going to share this week. I am swamped with things to do…places to go and people who need something done. I made it around to see you all who participated last week…and I hope to do the same this week…AND visit some of the nice people who are so kind to have left such wonderful comments…bare with me…I am one Toots…and I am doin’ the best I can!

I can’t wait to see what you all have to share with me this week…your gardens are all so lovely…inspiring and growing…it makes my heart sing to see!

so? why are you still here???? link up and flaunt with me!
