Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers August 6/10


Hello Bloggers/ Gardeners/ Friends!!!! 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 a lot of changes in my gardens this week…here are a few…the rest…well…you will just need to wait. I am in a renovation kind of mood…and I have been…and will be busy! My gardens take a back seat to the rest of the obligations I have lately, so please overlook the weeds…haha


This Dahlia is supposed to be a dinner plate dahlia….ya…


needless to say I am NOT impressed that they are far from it…dinner plate? maybe for a tiny fairy…It’s still pretty…but very disappointing.


A day lily I got for my birthday is in bloom…I love this color.


My Mandevilla is blooming a little bit…


I am so proud that not one but all three of my hydrangeas are blooming…and that the blooms are HUGE!




This one is a breast cancer campaign one…I can’t wait till it is all the way open!


The hydrangea bed…that columbine in the middle is getting a big divide…and move…the pink hydrangea will be moved to it’s place…the garbage and the weeds will be removed and all will be right!


The new wavy bed at the front of the house…the hedge is coming in nicely (even if you can’t see it in this photo)



Those little sparrows LOVE my vines. They play and roost and mess around in there all day long…


My rose bush in the front yard- and now….for the surprise of my season!


I did NOT plant these MALVA this year…In fact…I didn’t plant ANY malva this year!!!


Yep! I did plant petunias and geraniums and Dahlias and portulaca in this bed….in just a few days…they sprung up…and managed to get a lot taller than they were supposed to be! 044

I had intended to transplant them into a different location, but did not get a chance…so they are where they are…I think next year I won’t bother to plant anything…just shake out the seeds into the bed….and let em go!


I did plant this bed!!! ha ha


Finally, I have moved out to the alley again. I had a couple of peony plants given to me…and a three car parking pad out back that looks very deserted…so…I have begun a tootsiefy of the area…two peony plants are just the beginning…mwuahhhhahahahaha! (evil grins and giggles)

Okay…you have seen my offering of the week…so now it is your turn!!! Lets get sharing! I can’t wait to see!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend…see you next week!

and to the three biggest fans…hugs smiles and wishes of ____ well you know …. *) *) *)
