Fertilizer Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers!! June17/11



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 has been a busy week…full of decisions, drama and hustle and bustle in my house. I spent a lot of time at my children’s school this week, as I have had to deal with a bully issue that my oldest daughter has been having for quite some time. This has been ongoing, and I have been trying to work with the school all year long regarding my daughter and the issues she has been having. Today…Tootsie had enough. My oldest daughter has been pulled from school and will not be attending one more minute of grade 5 this year. The police are now involved as is the newspaper and the school board. I don’t plan to be a total stink maker, but I do plan to see some results!

The rest of the week has been equally as dramatic and busy here in Tootsie’s World…but that is just a regular thing these days…lol

I was originally planning to take some photos of the vine on the front of my house when it was dusk, so that we could “ooh” and “awe” at how nice the lights look in there…as well as the other places in the garden that I have added some lighting…but…it was pouring rain most of the evening and into the wee hours of the morning this morning, and that is not my idea of a fun time in the garden…so…you will have to settle for these instead…and wait with baited breath to see those photos next time! ha-ha-ha!

Here’s what you will have to settle for this week:


A very windy overcast day…and it’s started to sprinkle…so the photos are taken in a rush…lol

This pansy/marigold pot is doing great! These are left over Pansy’s from the planting I did with my youngest daughter’s kindergarten class this year for Mother’s day…


This seems to be my favorite photo spot this year…I am loving the way the perennials all came in and are doing so well.


These colors pop in the light at dusk…almost glowing…


Here is a daytime shot of the vine I wanted to share in the evening!!! Oh it looks very pretty when it’s dark!


I love how all the colors and types of flowers seem to live in harmony in my gardens…I so wish people could be that way…we are so complicated sometimes!


…but such is life…if it were all black and white…how boring would that be!

I close with hugs, smiles and wishes for you all to have a safe and happy weekend. Thanks to all who have linked in, commented and visited me this week. I am sure that some of you already know, I have been trying to get around and through the list of comments to answer and ooh and awe at your posts too!!!

I consider myself a fortunate gardener to have so many wonderful followers…so if you are not familiar with some of my blog list blogs…check them out…you won’t be disappointed!

Until Next time…happy gardening!
