Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Aug. 5/11



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 link 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!

It has been a week of fairly nice weather…didn’t see a lot of hail…just some rain in the evenings…I love night rains…that leaves time to be outside in the daylight. However…I have been incredibly busy in spite of the lack of children being around…(and I thought that I would be able to relax while they were away!!! hahaha!) I was going to share the look inside the greenhouse earlier in the week...but lost track of my days....and it's already time to that will have to wait!

Since I am going to be away this evening for a bit, I thought I'd post the party a couple of hours early....I hope you will all link in and participate!!! I am so happy to say that I managed to get around to every one of the players for the last three weeks!!!! Here's hoping that I can keep up this winning streak!

What’s blooming here??? Lets take a look!


My proven winner trials are loving the warm sunny location by the greenhouse….filling in very nicely!!


I just love the new colors!!


The straw flowers are just blooming their hearts out…I can’t wait to see how many I can save…might have to make some shadow boxes…lol


I was worried that the Clematis had died over the winter…it is only 1/2 the size it was last year at this time…Took forever to poke out of the ground…but yay me!!!…it’s blooming!


I have a little bloomin’ action goin’ on in the Datura department…I can’t wait!!! I just wish they’d have grown a bit taller than they did…the Wave Petunias are swallowing them up…


…can you find the Datura in this pot? It’s almost like Where’s Waldo!!! ha-ha-ha


Mini Snap Dragons, Portulaca and some Marigolds…made a nice little pot…LOTS of color!


To end my flaunt I am sharing the pre-view of the Rudbeckia! There are buds popping out all over…I can’t wait to share the open blooms…they are so pretty!

That’s it…that’s all…nothing else to share this day…so now it is your turn…get busy…water –snap - and post! Go! Now!!! I’m Waiting!!!!

Hugs smiles and wishes for a safe and happy weekend to you all….Special thanks to all those who popped over and commented to me this week and to those who also took the time to link up and flaunt with me! I appreciate each visit and love to see what you have to share!

I am also considering changing the name of this little shin dig…any suggestions are welcome!!!

Until next time…Happy Gardening!

*)*)*) to my very special three…here’s your thought for the week: Too many of us are worried about our outside appearance. What we really need to be worried about is our inside appearance. You know who you are!!!
