Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Those Flowers June 22/12


HAPPY FRIDAY AGAIN!!!! I am SO glad to see you!
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 has been insanely busy…road trips for passports…yard work, kids, sick kids…and getting ready to be away from home for a few days this weekend have almost sucked the life right out of me! I haven’t even answered all of my emails, not to mention the visits I owe you all. Before I begin the party this week I just feel like once again I need to first and foremost absolutely apologize for not being able to find one spare minute to get around to all that took the time to visit and link in the last two weeks or so. I just feel terrible about neglecting you all!

Today I am flaunting some container gardens. They seem to be thriving in their places in spite of wind, heavy rains and even hail this week. Yep…this area has been just a myriad of crazy weather again this week!


This Gerber Daisy is a little scarred…but still gorgeous in spite of it.


I love the color combination of the coral and the blue lobelia and bacopa.


Marigold and Alyssum and a happy combination.


It is not on purpose that all the marigolds are the same color combo…just happened that way.


This one is going to be gorgeous. They sure do smell good!!! Alyssum has one pretty scent!


Potted Pansy’s are very cheerful on the table top!


Geranium and Lobelia will be a sight to see when in bloom…this window box is bursting with happy plants!


I am not sure I like the look of Thymophilla plants…(did I spell that right??? ha ha)


…I do, however, love the look of the dainty yellow blooms it gives.


The window box hanging on the front step railing…is filling in and POPPING with color!


One last share…not in a container…but just lovely…Bleeding Hearts…just gorgeous and so dainty.


Don’t you just love how intricate and completely unique some of our flowers and plants can be??? Just look at all the details of each bloom and you will be amazed at each and every one!

That is all the flaunting I have today!!! I hope the weather next week is nice enough to get more done in my gardens…it is far too wet to do anything this week…and there seems to be a never ending list of things that need to be done! Not to mention all the catch up I need to play with you all!!!

I wish all of my followers hugs and smiles, and safe and happy weekend plans! Thanks for dropping in and to those that faithfully link in to this party…and who are patient while waiting for me to finally visit you…THANK YOU!

Until Next Time….Happy Gardening!

*)*)*) to my three special winks…sometimes you need to step away from someone to see who they really are, and when you look back you realise you made a step in the right direction. HUGS!
