Fertlizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers July 12/ 13


Do you know what day it is???

It’s Friday !!!!

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 gone by super fast for me.   My kids are away for a couple of weeks, and I have been trying to manage my body. I have had some big pain this summer….seems I have thrown out my entire body and let me tell you …it hurts.  I have siatic pain in my legs a lot of the time, my hips are out and pushing on the nerve, and I have still got pain from the blown shoulders I suffered last year.  My arms fall asleep and that is not fun.  The only feeling I have in my hands is searing pain! 
Since last we met, I have been getting treatments for these issues, and trying to take it easy and keep a low profile.  I have not got too much new to share, so I will just show you a few little shots of what’s going on in my gardens today!
I finally got the nerve to trim my hedge that I planted last year.  It is getting nice and full!!!
My beds are filling in…with flowers and sadly, weeds too.  I just weeded last week, and I am already needing to go at it again!
Do you spot the new additions in the front yard yet???   Keep lookin!!  I will share them in a post next week if I get a chance!
Things are going great in the back yard!!!  All is growing nicely!
The very warm dry weather is taking a toll on my lawn, but for the most part it is filling right in according to plan!
Feels so calm by this bed!
Cheerful…to say the least!
LOVE my window boxes that I added this year!!!
There is a new addition to the back yard too…I KNOW you can see it right away…I am excited for it to be all finished up so I can show it off!

That is all I have for today!   That means…I can’t wait to see what you have!

Well…what are you waiting for???


Get your flaunt on!!!

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…I am having LOTS of issues with pinched nerves and it is difficult to type or move the mouse right now.  If I do a little at a time I get by with only a little pain, but too much and I am OUT of commission for a long time!…also…it seems there are not enough hours in a day anymore...THANK YOU!
 Again, I feel just terrible that I haven’t had time to get around to everyone lately…I miss seeing your shares!

Until Next Time... Happy Gardening!

Oh my friend I hope you are feeling better soon. I know how frustrating it is to want to get and the garden and be held back wanting to care for it. Thank you for hosting..Hugs and blessings, C. (HHL)

Wow and Wow again! I love your style of gardening and all the bright colors and flowers. You are doing so much and yet are in pain which is sad. I hope your treatments are successful. I started taking Flexamin (Glucosamine Chondroitin) a few days ago hoping to heal my sore hips and back, plus gentle exercise in a pool. Maybe these would help you.

It sounds like it was definitely time to stop and take care of yourself. I hope you get everything sorted and start the recovery process soon.

Your garden is looking fantastic. You must be pleased with how everything is going. I just adore the look of your back yard, and wouldn't mind plonking myself on one of those rockers and just sitting for a while. The colour out the back is fantastic.

Well I also have to say, the front looks fabulous too, with all those window boxes and beds filling out.

Nerve pain is no fun! Sure hope your feeling better soon, altho I know that siatic can stick around a while. Numb arm sounds like pinched nerves too. I have a pinched ulnar nerve in my elbow so when I type I have to have a small pillow under my arm or it goes numb down to my fingers. My 22 yo is going to have surgery to remove a ganglion cyst from the top of his hand and also check out his carpel tunnel too. Surgeries will take over our Summer. My oldest and his wife are having gastric bypasses, her is next week his 2 weeks later. My 22 yo old may need to have his tonsils removed and trimming of his esophagus due to sleep apnea. Yep, paying for the Drs vacas again!
Trial is suppose to happen on August 12th. But I'm not holding my breath :(
Take care girlie, I'll be thinking and praying for you xoxo

Feel better soon . Thanks for sharing . Have a good weekend !
