Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers April 22/11

Before  I begin the Friday Flaunt, I would like to take a moment to wish you all a very happy Easter.  Today is Good Friday, and I do wish to remind us all to take the time to remember what this weekend is all about. 


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!

This was a week of hectic activity and running around for me.   I haven't even had the time to post since last we met!  I didn’t get time to  go to the greenhouse but to water this week…and today when I was in there I took a minute to stop and take note of the changes since last week.  Things are moving along quickly around here…(take a look!)…


The colors are popping!




I just love how Petunia comes in so many different and vibrant colors.


The first Geranium bloom of the year!  Salmon is quite a pretty color!


Hydrangea is still blooming!


The hanging pots are getting bigger every day!!!  They are ready to go outside!  (Just waiting on Mother Nature to get her act together  hint hint )


The house is filling up!


I love how it smells in here!


The shelves are filled with plants of all kinds and sizes now. 



My passion flower is just loaded with bloom buds!!!  I can’t wait to see them all open!!! 


Even as buds they are beautiful…


…just so delicate and intricate…I can’t hardly wait…maybe next Friday!!!!


Most of the pots are planted up.  Just a few more to go before I’m done.  Most everything is ready…except…


That pesky little thing called SNOW!


YA!!!  There’s still some on the ground!!! 

I am hoping that by next week it will all be melted off and the ground will be warm enough to at least fluff up the grass.  The snow mold is thick!  I wish I’d had time to do some this week…but…alas…there was no time to play!

I wish you all a very happy Easter…and leave you with one last photo:


Isn’t this just gorgeous?!?!  

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 Easter weekend with friends and family….and of course…happy gardening!

Stay tuned…this is going to be a summer filled with all sorts of announcements for me…and in the next few days,  I plan to make a big one right here!  I do hope you will join me!
