Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Jan 17/14

 Welcome!!!   Today is the first Fertilizer Friday party of 2014!!!!   Isn't that exciting!?   

 Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me really…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
I would like to invite each and every one of you to join in and share your photos...

This week I am celebrating EVERYONES birthday, by sharing this cute little thing I found while looking online for interesting and new flowers to plant in my yard this coming spring!  I decided that today was as good as any to share it...It isn't my flowers, but I haven't any to is winter here!   So...I am sharing each month in flowers. 

Traditional Birthday Flower Guide.
You have all heard of birth stones...and you have all heard of the traditional gift list....but have you heard of the traditional birthday flower guide? If you have is your lucky day!
I found this online at a site called homestead garden.

Since it IS January...and we have a full year of birthday's to be ready for, I thought maybe everyone would enjoy seeing what the flower is for your birth month.

In Gem stones, I am an emerald...and in flowers I am a Lily of the Valley...(darn!  I wanted a better flower than that!  lol)    What are you?


April--Sweet Pea or Daisy
May--Lily of the Valley




I hope you enjoyed seeing which one you are! (at least no one is a Dandelion)

Until Next Time....Happy Celebrating (if it's your birthday!) :)

*)*)*)... Its not what you say, But how you say it..The tone of your words affect more than the words itself..

Hi sweet lady...

My friend, it's so sweet to have you for Sunday Favorites this week and this was a great post to reshare! I didn't know that there were birthday flowers like this...what fun! Wow, mine couldn't have been sweeter...Gladiolas for August! Whenever I see Glads, I think of my dear, sweet Grandma! Girlfriend, she grew the most fabulous Glads that I've ever seen! Ohhh...and the colors of those Glads were just spectacular!!! youngest daughter was born in April and daisies have always been her favorite flower! I always get so tickled with her because she always tells her husband that she would much rather have him bring her a few hand picked daisies than a box of roses! Hehe! I can't wait to tell her that daisies are actually her birthday flower...she'll get a kick out of that!

Such a fun and interesting post, my friend...thank you so much for sharing it with us today for Sunday Favorites!!!

Have a super Sunday, Darlin'!

I have not seen the birthday flower list in a long time! Thanks for sharing! Thank goodness my flower is not Pointsetta! I saw enough of those growing up with Christmas birthday cakes! Ugh!

marilyn said...

Yes, I remember a birthday flower list from some time ago and the morning glory was the flower for September on that list. Only the morning glory stuck in my memory, probably due to the fact that September is my birth month.

What a fun post - - - I'm December, Narcissi are nice. (Don't know if that is the plural or not - - - but I LIKE it that way. Hehehehehehe)

BUT - - - I find myself WISHING my month's flowers were lilies of the valley. I just LOVE those. One house we moved into had them nestled all around the north foundation of the house - - - and before I could TELL my husband how PRECIOUS they were, he had mowed them all down. Very sad day.

Lona said...

Now that was a fun posting. I have heard of birthstones but not flowers. Hey Tootsie, I always knew I was a sweetpea. LOL!

squawmama said...

I am a January baby so I guess that is why I love the carnation so much!!! Thanks for the fun post...

That was pretty neat Toots I did not know which flower was mine, now I do. I love chrysanthemums too. They are a pretty hardy flower.

deb said...

What a great reference. I knew I was Lili of the Valley but now I have a guide for everyone elses birthdays.
Thank so much!

linda may said...

I have seen this before, lots of lovely traditional flowers in there. I need to turn it upside down in the southern hemisphere with our opposite seasons. Hahaha.

Andrea said...

While you can't have flowers during the winter season, you can just come to our perennial flower presence because we have them all the time. That will keep you warm, and stay safe and well. Those flowers are the analogy of the birthstones!

Well, looks like I am a Mum. : ) Thanks for hosting!
