Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers April 1/11


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 be garden related, and 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!

This is once again a very busy week here in my house…the kids are off for spring break until Monday morning…and I have been so busy I haven’t had much time left to blog or run around blog land! I can honestly say I can’t wait for a slower week around here…I am POOPED! lol

I am so glad to have had the chance to share my bedroom posts this week…and thankful for all that have linked in, or commented this week!

I have some very good news to share with you:

I think that spring has finally arrived in central Alberta Canada!!!

We finally got to see the sun come out and some of the snow melt away. Last year at this time, I had the lawnmower out and was getting ready to power rake the grass….funny how different this year looks here…


I can see my patio stones that I made for the front of the greenhouse…and even some grass- so at least it has started to melt away!!!


The plants in the greenhouse are loving that we finally got some sunshine! Yesterday these were very small…not much different than last week’s flaunt…but when I walked in today… BOOM! They had grown a LOT!


Looks like spring to me!


I had not just one…but TWO banana seeds sprout!!! YIPPIE!!!


I managed to get about 1/2 of the hanging baskets planted…they too have taken right off!


Just look at all the spring in this pot!


Everything seems to be happy about the sun shining!!


Got my shade hung…(sheer curtains…which may not be enough…will see…) and about 35 trays planted…look at the little forest that is coming along over there…


The Marigolds always remind me of a little forest when they are in trays. They were sown last Thursday…and Friday morning there were some already growing!

Things are doing very well in my greenhouse…I can’t wait to get planting the rest of the hanging baskets…and container gardens!


So? What are you flaunting this week? I hope spring has arrived in your area too! I just can’t wait to see!

I am going on a little road trip this weekend…Grammie and Grampie are going to go junkin’ with me!!! I am so excited…you have NO idea. It’s been a long while since I got to junk- much less get Grampie to share his goodies with me! *)

Until next time…hugs, smiles and wishes of a safe and happy weekend…see you next week when I share my junkin’ fun…happy gardening!

*)*)*) to my special three…I love to see you think of me so very often!
