Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers May 13/11


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 has been a very windy week here in Alberta. High winds have taken their toll on my spring flowers…and on me in general. It was hot…and windy the last three days…and the winds can sure tire out a girl…much less her flowers!

The kids and I have been very busy…running our little heels off all week long. It has been just nuts here! We are having so much fun getting things done…going places and being a family that we hardly even remember that it’s already the weekend! There has not been any time for online chatting…or blogging…and that is not good. I can’t wait until this busy time of the year has passed and we all can just relax and play around a bit.

I spent the entire day (on Thursday) celebrating my birthday…even got to do a bit of junkin’…and I was so distracted by the whole birthday thing, that I did not have a chance to snap any photos…So…since I am celebrating my 40th birthday, and Tootsie Time is Celebrating 3 years of blogging…I have decided that I won’t post any photos…but just bask in the glory of yours!

Thanks to all who commented on my last post…your sweet words brought tears to my eyes a few times and smiles every time. I appreciate you all stopping by and leaving a note, linking in and just being followers!

So…what are we still sitting here for??? We have gardens to tour…flowers to flaunt and inspirations to find!!!

See you all next week for the reveal of the sweetest little birthday treasures…and a few how to posts …yes…this Toots has been a very busy girl!

Hugs and smiles…hopes for a safe and happy weekend to you all…and until next time…happy gardening!

*)*)*)…you know who you are…and I love that I am always on your mind! mwuah!!!

Finally Blogger let us post. Happy Birthday to you. The weather has been warming here and today was humid. We are going to get some rain for the weekend so can catch up on the housework. V

Det är skönt att blooger fungerar igen. I Sundvall/Sverige är det grått väder och massor av regn. men vi slipper blåsten. Önskar dig en skön helg! Zinnia

I'm slow joining in this week. I left a post for Blogger to automatically put up while I was in hospital having knee surgery but it never happened. And now I see it twice in my list of posts. Good grief. Hope this one goes through on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

I'm with you on the 'way too busy' I didn't get out and get any pics, but it's still early here. My Magnolia tree bloomed and the tulips bloomed. Lots of new growth, but I'm still waiting on the color. I don't see my time opening up any in the next few weeks either, but I'll be back to check things out here. Good thing you have your header :)
