Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers July 29/11



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...

What a week I have had! Since the last Flaunt I have been a very busy girl! Friends and fun consumed the entire weekend…It was fabulous!

The new week brought with it some drama, including a trip to the emergency room for one kid who ended up on crutches for a badly sprained ankle. She took a bad landing on the trampoline.

The pool was set up in the greenhouse, and my house suddenly became even more of a popular place to hang out than it was before! The gardens were hopping with kids all week long!


I managed to get a shot of the situation when there were no kids…


…and one of two of my own…just swimming away…happy happy!

It is hot as heck in the greenhouse during the day…so they don’t mind the cool water so much…It is actually quite warm after a day or so…the heat in there warms that water right up!

Both of my parents celebrate birthdays this week! Happy Birthday Grammie and Gramie!!! We Love you!

It wasn’t a warm week in my area of Alberta, but it was a very busy one to say the very least!

I have lots to share this week…so I might as well get on with it!


Brenda (my partner on Growing 4 Seasons) asked me what I have growing on in my greenhouse right now…so I will give her a quick look…See?

I’ll share more of that next week girl!


I love the view from inside the greenhouse to the tiny pathway outside the door…


The huge leaves on the Nicotana give my header bed sort of a tropical look this year! yay Tootsie!


It’s a jungle out there!


My big pots are getting nice and full…


My stairway pots are looking so pretty…very dainty in their little pots!


My direct seed beds in the back are looking ok…wish they would just bloom already!!!!


I love the colors in the front yard curvy hedge that I built last year…they just look so bright when you drive up.



I am so excited that my direct seed bed on the front side yard is going wild!!!


It’s Blooming!!!


There are two types of Malva mixed in with the poppies and the other things that are going in there…the Poppy seeds took…but I think they and the Malva crowded out the rest! Oh well…lesson learned!


…a quick view of the curvy hedge from the inside of the yard…


My lupins are blooming!!!!

Well…that is it for today…I could go on and on and on…there is so much to share in my gardens right now. I will leave you with a preview of next week…


I have a Plan….and can’t wait to get a chance to see it through!!!

On this note…I send you hugs and smiles, and wishes for a safe and happy weekend with those you find most enjoyable! Thanks to all who linked in last week and to those who leave such sweet comments that make me smile. I am looking forward to getting around and seeing you all in the coming days!

Until next time…Happy Gardening!

*)*)*) to those special three who make my posts such a treat to share…Be careful the toes you step on today maybe attached to the ass you'll have to kiss tomorrow.
