Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers June 25/10


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!

So…in my gardens…things are finally getting a grow on. The grass is back to the every three days mowing…the flowers needing to be watered at least every other day…and the blooms are coming more and more each day…lets take a look!


front door..


Front bed…


The guy next door’s grass was Tootsiefied…and looks great! I need to weed over there as soon as I finish my own yard.


Back yard…garden bench.

Window box on the fence.

back gate hanging basket.


And last but not least…Grammie’s cones…(now known as Tootsie’s cones) are doing well!!!

So you see…things are getting bigger by the day around here…I am relieved…but still impatiently waiting for the days when there is no dirt visible between plants. This is the hardest part for me…the waiting!

So…while I wait…show me yours!!!

I am having a garage sale this weekened…so I do hope I find some time to join you all before the week is out! Thanks for linking in guys!! I appreciate all the participants…and the sweet comments from you all!!!

Until next time!!!….Remember…there is no such thing as not good enough!!! Flaunt it!!

Your flowers are awe-inspiring! I never visit here without being completely blown away by the abundance of blooms, and the TIDINESS of everything -- if I were a weed, I would be AFRAID to venture into your beds!

Fabulous, gorgeous, stunning, inspiring -- there just are not enough superlatives for the results of your Green Thumb!
Have a lovely green weekend!

Teresa said... are on your way to having a garden even better than your garden last year and I didn't think that was possible. Looking Good! Have fun with your garage sale.

Come and do any yards! You always have such wonderful creations, it's a pleasure to see.

Suzy said...

Your garden is beautiful and neat as a pin!

Troy said...

I'm waiting patiently to see where the infamous Loufahs appear...

Your yard looks great, do you cut the grass one blade at a time, with little scissors? It looks better than the fake grass they put in football statiums!

Debbie said...

Your yard is absolutely beautiful. How ever do you keep your beds so neat and clean? I wish that not only my flower beds were tootsifed but also my grass. All I can say is WOW!! Stunning!

Alea Milham said...

Your gardens are lovely! I look forward to watching them fill in this summer!

Autumn Belle said...

Your garden is so beautiful now, full of gorgeous blooms. I only have green leaves today.

siteseer said...

Your bike basket is gorgeous!! and remember when you thought the window box on the fence was 'ugly'? Not anymore, it is full full full. You are not resting at all. Beautiful!!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I'm laughing about what Cass said about weeds being afraid to venture into your beds. Things are beautiful in Tootsie-ville!

I want to come to your garage sale. Actually, I've been keeping myself away from garage sales for the most part, but right after I linked in this morning, I looked at the ads, and found an estate sale that has a bird bath that I am probably going to go to. They may have other things to put out in the bare spots. Oh, and they have wash tubs. ;o)

Lynn said...

Everything looks great, really lovely! Good luck with the garage sale-have fun!

Susan said...

Tootsie, there is not one little bit of your gardens that I don't like. Everything is just so pretty. I love the pansies in the old metal tub. How pretty.

I'm here for the first time for Fertilizer Friday. I hope I did everything correctly. I did link up, so... well, we'll see.

Have a bright and sunny day,

Linda @ Linda's Lunacy said...

Your gardens are so beautiful and creative! I want to build a garden bench like yours. Thanks for all the ideas!

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Tootsie - That front entrance is stunning! And the rest is - well - okay..... NOT. Everything looks wonderful.

marilyn said...

Everything is beautiful!! Hope you're singing it.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Your blooms are so gorgeous and everything looks so neat. What a beautiful place to visit!

Millie said...

It's all looking beautiful...oh, so neat! Well, now I'm going outside to do some weeding! (you inspired me)

Awesome! Love everything(-: Especially that bike!!! Whoot!!! Yup I signed up this week but my garden is not nearly as beautiful as yours.(-:

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Looks great there! I love all of your baskets and containers. My grass is pathetic next to yours. Yours is so green and nicely edged and weed free.
Good luck with your garage sale, wish I could come by for it. I bet you have some great stuff.

Lona said...

Everything looks so beautiful Tootsie. I love your bicycle bed. Is that Fancy Dress petunias in your bike basket? Mine did not look like the pictures of them at all.

deb said...

Your gardnes are gorgeous and manicured to the tee!
I keep forgeting to say how much I love the "cobble floor"!

Maureen said...

Everything looks absolutely fabulous! All so nicely put together. Love, love the bench and the way that you arranged it.

Rainy Day Gardener said...

Your grass is just emerald green! Wow! And, I love all the creative containers you have, adds such a nice feel..the bike it my favorite :) Good luck with your garage sale ~ I'm sure all the shoppers will delight in your pretty flowers as well! Cheers ~

Your grass is beautiful, Tootsie!

How I miss the bright green grass we enjoyed at our cottage, until just a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately, this intense heat has turned the grass quite brown in areas.

I would love for you to visit the cottage and link to one, or all three, of my linky parties.

You can get the details here:

Each party runs for six days, so come on by!

Hope to see you there!

Your gardens look great... and to think,you had snow not long ago! Larry

deb said...

Hi Tootsie ☺
The blue is Love in a Mist (Nigella damascena). It's an annual and usually reseeds itself in my Zone 9/10 garden. Easy to grow and dainty looking.
Have a great weekend!

Unknown said...

wow! I love your blog--soooo pretty! Thanks for inspiring this little ol' black thumb to try again...LOL! I found you through Sandy aka Doris the Great. I love her garden as well.

Bella's Rose Cottage said...

Hi Tootsie ... Everything is gorgeous! and growing soo fast! Your bicycle basket is already spilling over!
Happy Gardening!

The JR said...

I don't know how you do it all. Everything looks so fanastic.

I need a full time Tootsie around my house.
