Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Sept. 3/10

Before I begin this weeks flaunting party, I first want to apologize for not getting around to visit each and every one of you…especially those who link in each week. This week was especially difficult for us all in my house, as my oldest baby- Miss Poo (our beloved dog) passed away unexpectedly. I have spent the better part of my time consoling three very sad and confused children.

Second…I would like to thank you all for the heartfelt condolences that you shared with me as I posted with my broken heart the sad news. Without fail the blogging community came to my aid again and prayed for our healing, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Okay, with the intent of visiting everyone this week…LETS GET FLAUNTING!!!


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!

Today as I was wondering endlessly around my gardens looking for something new to share…I was noticing that the Dahlias were looking especially perky. At the same time I noticed how different each bloom was…and thought you guys might like to see some of them. I know my photos are nowhere near as wonderful as the ones my greenhouse sister Bren takes...but at least I try! ( I will be doing a post to introduce you to her very soon! I am so excited to share our new project that I can hardly contain myself! stay tuned!)


Rain, wind and cool weather, along with some frost has taken a bit of a toll on many of the blooms…but they are all beautiful none the less.


so cheery!


Grammie!!! this is your favorite one by the garage door.


this one screams innocence.


so simple…yet so pretty…and just about perfect! (almost looks fake!)


check out the little fame stealer…such a diva -this bee…the same one pops up in several photos…a few of which made it here today.


even not open all the way they are gorgeous.


love this color.


this one shimmers…


this looks soooo soft!


this one reminds me of a baby softness.


even though this dinner plate dahlia…is more like a miniature…it will be gorgeous when it opens all the way.


so intricate!


isn’t nature beautiful?


again..that DIVA! If I try to get a photo of a bee…I can’t..and when I don’t want him…there he is! MEN! ha-ha.


ha-ha mister bee….beat ya!


clusters of pretty dahlias all over my gardens


I love how the colors just blend into each other on this one…like Darla’s tie die t-shirts. have you seen her gardens??? oh well if not…click her name to visit…you won’t be disappointed.


I wonder if Larry grows lots of different dahlias…and if so…does he create new types?….another place you have got to see!!!


And the last for today…the color of sunset just beginning, and the beginning of the fall season.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today, and that you will link up to flaunt with me this week. Again…I do intend to do my very best to get all the way around this week. It kills me that I have not visited…especially when you are so kind to stop in and say hi to me!

Hugs and smiles along with wishes for a safe and happy weekend to you all…until next week…Bye!

and to my three very special winks…thank you ever so much for stopping by so faithfully and so often (you know who YOU are!) *) *) *)
