Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Feb.17/12


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...

This week I have been super busy doing lots of errands and finalizing the sale of my old home. It has been a tough week for me and the kids, and I have been away from the computer much of the time. My share this week is going to be a blast from the past. I am missing my greenhouse…and aching to see spring…and all the crisp green leaves sprouting and the promise of blooms to come. Looking through the photos of my flowers in past seasons, I started to get excited… started to dream.

I am dreaming of …


Calibrachoa. It always makes me smile…the vibrant small blooms.


Dahlias in every color imaginable are a very nice sight to see. They are so regal and intricate.


The Passion Flowers with all the intricacies of their blooms, make this gardener stop and just gaze in amazement at the wonders of nature.


Geraniums in a myriad of colors in abundance filling the beds and containers are a delight! In early evening the bright colors seem to almost be electric with their glow.


Colorful hanging baskets with heavenly shades of blue flowers…Bacopa, Pansy, Lobelia…all just so delicate..


Huge containers loaded with Wave Petunias… just so wonderful…


Foliage plant such as Coleus…look so pretty and almost touchable!


Osteospermums sitting pretty in pots and plantings…looking like princesses waiting for prince charming to come.


Maybe a “forest” of Malva and Lavatera…to fill a flower bed…or just a few to add height to a garden…


I can’t wait to get my greenhouse filled with tropicals that bloom…


…and lots that don’t. Just leaves are enough for me…as long as it’s green…I am a happy girl.


I just can’t wait to have a space where I can sit…and let the garden excite my senses and ignite my imagination, and awaken my creativity.

Starting Monday morning, I am getting my plant on and starting to seed my annuals for this coming season!

What are YOU dreaming about for your gardens? I can’t wait to see!

Until next time…Happy garden dreaming!

“Creativity is when your spirit gets a chance to play and express itself. So whether art, dance, making music, writing, or creating a garden, let yourself go…”

*)*)*) to my special little fan club…sometimes life puts you on a path you didn't want to be on but somehow at the end of the path there's opportunity there that you would have never discovered before. Every flower that ever bloomed had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there.
