Fertilizer Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers Feb. 25/11


Good Day! Happy Friday!!!

Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me…there is no one else here…lol) It’s a big deal because it means it’s PARTY TIME!!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day of the week than an ELITE group of gardeners from all around the world get together, snap photos, link up and Flaunt Their Flowers!!!

Before we begin I feel that I need to re-state the pre-requisites for this little party. There isn’t that much, but it seems there has been some confusion amongst a few participants.

If you are new to Tootsie Time and Fertilizer Friday, I just know you are asking yourself…”How do I join?” Well…it’s easy really. Here’s all you need to know to become a part of this great group of gardeners, bloggers and friends:

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!

All I ask is that: Your post must include the logo above and/or a link to Tootsie 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!


It has been a very cold week here in Alberta.


The snow melted some last week during the chinook we had, but this week is a very different story. Lets go inside the greenhouse where it’s warm…almost like spring!


I haven’t killed the loofa yet…but it’s not the happiest plant I have. Perhaps the gloomy skies are the reason. It hasn’t been too sunny here lately.


The little Geranium seedlings are doing VERY well…


…and there are a lot of them!


The smaller colorful pots are the Petunias I planted yesterday. Can’t wait till that whole wall is filled with GREEN!!!


Green like this!


I still have a few established plants in the greenhouse…which seem happy to be there. I moved most of them inside the house until after the spring seedlings get planted out in my gardens.


I found a good spot for my Orchids…and while moving them I realized why they are so intimidating…


They have huge fangs! ha-ha


They look like they are going to bite!


I wonder if there is a reason for it…or if they are just beautiful, and I have a good imagination. hmmmm *)


One of my Christmas Cactus plants is in bloom.


This is one of the first ones, and there are dozens on the plant still to open.


Although it’s been cold and dreary most of this week…my houseplants are doing well in the sunroom, where they are basking in today’s sunshine…I just can’t wait till spring. (and not just because my house is bursting with plants waiting to spend the summer in the greenhouse! haha)

So…? What do you have growing? Do you have a greenhouse/sunroom that you grow in?

Will you take my invitation and link in this week? I can’t wait to meet your flowers!

I am still catching up from last week, it’s been busy here again. Sick kids, work and other mommy obligations sometimes makes Tootsie a bad blogger! I will get there…

I have also been working on a bit of a makeover on Tootsie Time…please be patient with me. HTML is NOT my friend. There are still a few kinks to iron out.

Thanks for stopping by, and to those who link in…I appreciate it! Now lets get busy and start the Friday Flaunting!

Until Next time…hugs and smiles, wishes for a safe and happy weekend to you all…and ….

Happy Gardening!
