Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers July 13/12


HAPPY FRIDAY AGAIN!!!! Welcome to the party!

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 am still out and about on Vacation!!! Until I get home, I am going to leave the flower flaunting to you guys! I will, however share a special “weed." I have been growing this particular variety now for about 13 years.


This particular weed goes by the pet name “Duch” or “Duchy” (pronounced DOOCH….or DOOCHIE) …(as he’s called around home)

On July 10 1999, I became a mom for the first time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUD!!! YOU ARE OFFICIALLY A TEENAGER!!! (UGH…I don’t like the sound of that…ha ha)

My Bud has been the love of my life since the first moment I saw him! I am so proud of all that he has done and at what a great kid he has been. (mostly…ha ha)

I am lucky that he is usually around to give me a hand whenever I am desperate enough to ask…and hugs when I need them. He is a good kid…smart, athletic and best of all he’s mine!


He has grown up so fast!!! Like a WEED!

I hope your birthday was wonderful! I can’t wait for you to come home and have a celebration with me! Arizona is nice…but mom’s place is HOME.


I am sure he has that look on his face right now as he reads this sappy stuff!

Love you Baby!!! xoxo

I also want to wish the two crazy “gnome-rs” my mom and dad…(a.k.a Grampie and Grammie)…


…Happy Anniversary!!! Without you…neither Me or my Bud would exist! We love you loads…and are lucky to have you! Did you find the gnome I put in your yard to celebrate the 11th of July…Your special day!

It is pretty bad when this is the only photo I have of you guys standing together …taken while I was laying under a shrub across the street, watching you discover all the gnomes I had hidden in your yard! ha ha! Love you guys!

ok…there is this one too…


Maybe some up to date family photos are in order here???? Perhaps some that include all of us with smiles??? At least one where Grammie isn't making a face would be fabulous! ha ha! uh huh…that is me in the photo with them!

This brings us to the end of my slightly unusual flaunt for this 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!

Wishing all of you hugs, 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!

*)*)*) to my three special winks….If being crazy means living life as if it matters, then I don’t mind being completely insane.
