Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers April 15/11


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 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!

It was a busy week here in Central Alberta…as usual. The sun was out and we were all so happy to see the snow slowly burning off and disappearing. It was wonderful to see spring finally coming to our area.

The grass was showing through and we were almost ready to pull out the rakes and try to deal with the patches of snow mold that are left on the lawn…when…


….THIS HAPPENED!!!! Sad smile Sad smile Sad smile

Yep! A spring storm hit us and overnight we got more SNOW! (yep…I said the ‘S’ word!) Hopefully it stops snowing soon…and melts off so we can get back to playing in the mud and driving fast through the puddles!

I didn’t get much time in the greenhouse except to water, as there was a lot of other chores and things to tend to…but I did take a few shots of the progress my flowers are making.


I absolutely love seeing the shelves full of green leaves and new growth!


I have more blooms!!! This one is a purple wave petunia.


This is a blue wave petunia…

I think it’s funny how they call hot pink –purple…and royal purple…blue…but hey…that’s the way it is!

That is all that is new with me…so I am ready to get to the good part! I want to see what you are flaunting this week!!! Inspire me!!! Dazzle me!!! I just can’t wait to see!!!

I’m ready to visit…so link in and share!!! See you there! Thank you all for linking in…and leaving a comment!

Until next time, hugs and smiles…wishes of a safe and happy weekend with friends and family….and of course…happy gardening!
