Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers July 6/12


IT’S FRIDAY AGAIN!!!! I am SO glad 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 the busiest Tootsie in these parts this week. My kids left on Sunday for a full month!!! Getting them ready to go was a big undertaking. Seeing them off was …well…entertaining. *) tsk tsk. *) Look out Arizona!!! Tootsie’s gang is coming for a visit! ha ha

With the kids gone, I decided to DEEP clean my house and get a lot of junk out…so my house is spic and span! Just as I was about to turn my attention to the yard work that awaits me…a huge storm front rolled in and ended all of my good intentions. Heavy rainfall and dangerous winds put me right back inside…and I don’t see me getting out there any time soon to do any of the weeding or mowing…or anything!

I know what you are thinking…”in a couple of days Toots…you will be out there just working like a maniac…” Well…that is not going to happen…because for the first time, this Tootsie is going on a holiday!

The original plan was to head to California and visit a dear friend. Alas, as the departure date grew close, I received word that the plan must change. So…a very disappointed Tootsie is forced to use a back up plan.

I can’t wait to share all the photos I am taking! I am going to be away for a couple of weeks, so if you don’t hear from me…that is why.

Now, with Mother Nature hammering us with her wrath, I haven’t gotten outside to take any photos to share…as everything that was blooming that I had planned to share with you today has become waterlogged…and wind whipped into a state of SAD. So…I am taking a “time out” so to speak. For this week and next, I will not be flaunting anything new. This Tootsie is on vacation!

Today I am sharing the garden I miss so much. It has only been about 8 months since I moved away from it.


I still have this rocking chair. I should really find a place to use it in my new garden…once I get it all built!


Last year was a good year for this area.


I have planted a vine at the new place…I can’t wait until it is as lush as this one was!


I need to find my cement form…I miss my cobble stones!


Can you see the bike in this photo? ha ha


I do hope one day that my current gardens are as successful as these were!

It makes me so sad to hear from my old neighbors, that the new owners did NOTHING to keep up the yard so far…and it looks like a mess. I hear that you couldn’t even tell I had ever lived there right now. I can’t bring my self to drive past there…I would be heartbroken to see all my hard work gone to waste! The neighbors say they miss me!

This brings us to the end of my flaunt for the week. Now it is your turn…bring it on! (keep in mind, I will be away from my computer…and that I moderate all my comments, so with that being said, be patient with me…I will do my best to get online and publish what comments you leave as often as possible…but I will more than likely not be around to drool over your flaunts until I get home.)

What are you waiting for??? Get flaunting!

I wish all of you hugs and smiles, and safe and happy weekend plans! Thank you all so much for dropping in today, 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!
