Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers March 23/12


IT’S FRIDAY AGAIN!!!! I am SO glad to see you!

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!!!
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.

So....I would like to invite each and every one of you to join in and share your photos...

Today's party is starting a little earlier than most weeks, as I have to be away from my computer for a day or two and didn't want to miss out on seeing what you all have to share!

The new week brought with it a HUGE snow storm. We got almost 18 inches of snow in just a few short hours…it was nasty. That storm didn’t stop this Tootsie from playing in the greenhouse a little bit.

It may look like a fresh new winter has begun outside…but inside…the reminders that spring is on her way are everywhere!


I finally found my chains…so I hung my metal rods from the rafters.


I then dug out the hanging baskets and got myself busy!


I planted them all up with flowers that are ready to move. I did several different color schemes in them this year.


All of these ones are sold to friends. I can’t wait to see them flowing over the rims of the pots and start blooming!


I used 9 trays of flowers to plant those 31 hanging baskets. I made this much room for more planting!!!


Unfortunately for me, I ran out of soil to use to make more cell trays…so I had to play around with these plants instead! There are so many great changes each day…


The Geraniums are getting their second set of true leaves!!!


Baby Bacopa is sure cute all bushy in the pots.


The Dahlias are doing great!!!


I have never planted Castor Beans before…I know they are highly poisonous…so I waited until now to plant any. I don’t have any outside pets…and my kids are old enough to know better than to eat them.


They seem to be doing very well…already getting their second set of leaves.


I also started a few new house plants this week.


That about covers what I have to flaunt this week. I have been busy in the house too…but don’t have anything to share yet…as there are a few things left unfinished. Hopefully next week I will be able to share!

This is your que to get busy and dazzle me with your spring gardens!!! I can’t wait to see what you have to share!

Hugs , smiles and wishes for a safe and happy weekend with friends and family from Tootsie and her gang in Zone 2 Alberta Canada!!!

Until Next Time…Happy gardening!

*)*)*)…a quick note for my special three…We choose how we see people. When we want to like someone, we can be so tolerant.... When we want to be irritated by people, we focus on their faults. It’s not other people’s behaviour that determines how we feel about them- it’s our attitude.
