Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers August 2/ 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...
I managed to bugger up my lower back pretty good this week…but have no idea how I did it…so…I have been a little under the weather and definitely out of commission for most of  the last few days.   It is feeling a bit better today, and I am able to walk about a bit, but earlier in the week it was horrible!  No sitting, no standing, and no laying down…What’s a girl to do!
Well…she does a little photo shooting.   There wasn’t any weeding done…that’s for sure!  haha
Take a look at the things this Tootsie sees when she actually is forced to sit still for a bit:
This little guy seemed to follow me everywhere I went…I think he was posing!
There are dozens of Dragon Flies in my gardens right now…not all of them are so still!  haha
I spent a little time looking up close at some of the blooms that we take for granted…there are some gorgeous combinations of color and intricacies that without a little attention being paid, we would never REALLY see.
Beautiful color combinations…
Each flower has it’s own characteristics…
There is always something going on in the garden:
This little guy sure is working hard in the monkshood blooms.
…soft and delicate (hosta bloom buds)
…delicious smells (heliotrope)
The way every flower compliments the next is exciting.  Going in for a shot of a pretty white Dahlia and getting a surprise visitor in the mix… is priceless!  I had no idea he was going to land!
That brings us to the end of my flaunt. 
SO??…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…also…it seems there are not enough hours in a day anymore...THANK YOU!

Until Next Time... Happy Gardening!

I love this time of summer with the birds and blooms and hosta flowers are beautiful when you view them at their level.

Am so sorry to hear about your back. Hate when that happens. I'm surprised you were able to take these awesome photos of flowers. When my back is bad I am not able to do anything. Here's hoping it is much much better by now. Hugs!

Donna said...

Hope you feel better and take advantage of lingering in your garden without working much...fabulous pics of those moments.

Hi Glenda/Tootsie. Thanks for hosting. It has been a great summer for working in the garden, a gardener's dream for me. Hope you feel better soon. Love seeing the red dragon fly and your incredible flower photos.

Your hydrangeas, lupine, dahlias, and hosta flowers are all really pretty. You captured great shots. Good to see the wildlife too!
