Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Those Flowers!!! April 8/11


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!!!

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...

IT'S FERTILIZER FRIDAY!!!!! It's time to Flaunt Your Flowers/Foliage!
I can't wait to see what you share!

Another week of spring has hit Alberta Canada, and the snow is slowly but surely melting away. The days are getting longer – and the sun is warmer…things are always better when the sun is shining!

It has been a busy week…full of decisions, drama and hustle and bustle in my house. I managed to squeeze a few hours in to get a little bit of work done in the greenhouse. I wish I had more time to just go and be in there…it is after all…my very special place!

If you have been following my Friday posts, you will certainly notice lots of changes in the greenhouse this week.

Shall we? Lets take a look:


This is the first official bloom of 2011 in my greenhouse crop! It is a shock wave pink petunia. I was thrilled to see it.


I always love to look at all of the different flower blooms up close…They never cease to amaze me.


This is the newest view from the front door. You will notice that things have changed quite a bit….I planted several of the containers that stand on the patio …


…and some of the hanging baskets that I will use around the gardens….


Everything is growing like crazy!!!


The Petunias were obviously happy to get into the hanging baskets!


There are a few more trays that need to get into pots…for friends and family…


The portulaca and snap dragons are popping out of the soil…


More Petunias and some marigolds…it’s quite green in here! ha-ha!


I organized…and cleaned up…


…Finished hanging my sun filter…(old sheer curtains)


…removed the winter floor tiles that insulate against the harsh winter temps…


…and turned the fans up to keep the air moving.

It just seems that there isn’t enough time anymore…I am a little behind this year…but that’s okay…spring is running late too!

My internet provider has been doing upgrades to their system this last week…and my internet has been sporadic at best…I think they are finished now…so I will be all over that linky list this evening…this week’s and last weeks…I missed a few of you…and want to get caught up!

So…without further delay, I am on my way…I just can’t wait to see what you guys share! Maybe I can get some ideas for container gardens!!! *)

I wish to thank you all for linking in, and visiting me here this past week! If you have not popped in on my other blogging adventure Growing 4 Seasons, to take a quick peek….head over…and while you are there…add yourself to the followers list! I just installed it the other day! Leave a comment and let us know you stopped in! There are all sorts of great ideas there…including a month by month posting of greenhouse tasks, and flower shares by Bren!

Hugs, smiles and wishes for a great weekend with friends and family.

Until next time….Happy Gardening!
