Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Oct. 14/11



I am so happy you stopped by!

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...

I have been on the run …even more than usual this week…seems that the schedule is getting tighter and tighter lately, and I haven’t even had the computer on, much less post anything…BUT…I have made progress with plans for the move and things are soon to be posted on. Stay Tuned…

It’s fall in Alberta…and that means the temps are cooling off more each day. I have seen several frosts come and go…it is surprising how warm it still has been…and even more surprising is my gardens…Let me show you what I mean.


The leaves are turned…and falling like crazy now…


All of the usual sights and smells of fall have arrived to delight the senses…


I have removed all the garden decor…and all the container plantings have been discarded….Fall has arrived…and things appear to have wound down in my gardens…right????…………………WRONG.


The craziest thing about this season in my garden…is that the flowers seem to have escaped the frost!!! I stopped watering at the end of September…and yet…….All of the flower beds are still doing great!! There has been a bit of frost damage…and things are a bit overgrown, and not as lush and pretty as they were a month or more ago…BUT…


This Tootsie still has flowers in her gardens…and that is all that matters. I am grateful for this extended time in my gardens…it seems almost like the garden is having as much trouble saying goodbye to me…as I am.

Thank you all…for faithfully stopping in to say hello…and for the sweet supportive comments…and most of all…for hanging in there beside me in this crazy and difficult time. I feel so bad that I have not been around to thank or comment much…or at all…and am grateful that you all have not abandoned ship because of it. I WILL be there…with bells on…as soon as I get a few minutes to myself…with which I can dance the internet with glee!

Hugs and smiles and wishes for a safe and happy weekend to you all…

Until Next Time…Happy Gardening!

*)*)*) to my very special three…in time people don't really change they just show who they have always been. I can honestly say I am proud to be me. It is not how many times you have been brought to your knees, but how you brush the dirt off your knees that makes you successful.
