Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Aug. 23/13



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...

Frost has threatened Alberta this week…it is WAY too early if you ask me, but Mother Nature has her mind made up that our winter is more than likely going to be another LONG one.  Sad smile

I made it into the greenhouse…and FINALLY got my baby cleaned up a bit.  I still need to go in and pressure spray everything down and make sure it is all clean and sparkling for the winter, but that will wait till I am ready to put the insulated floor back in. 

The plants in there didn’t seem to mind that it was in a state of disarray for the last while…they are doing very well.   It seems that they love the new fan that I put in there last month.  Take a look:
Things are a little bit like a nice little jungle in there…I love being surrounded by plants…don’t you?
All my tropicals seem to be enjoying life…inside and outside the greenhouse.
This is the new fan. It is doing a much better job of cooling the greenhouse in the midst of the warm afternoons…When turned onto HI… This baby will blow your skin right off!  (well not quite…but it is strong)
My Banana that I started from seed is getting nice and big!!!  Yay!!!
That Swedish Ivy Nicco is all full and lush…I have had it for years, and always worry about it getting old…I might need to start a few new ones from cuttings just for insurance.
Lots of hanging plants…some which need to go to new homes…any takers??   Aunty Laura?????
My pony tail palm got a little bigger pot and didn’t skip a beat…it’s happy!
I am happy to see that the fiddle leaf fig is FINALLY over her tantrum…and is going to decide to live.  I had threatened to toss it out if it didn’t start to
I added some tropicals to the garden this year…the spider plants seem happy growing in the petunia pots…
…I also added some to the bacopa pots in some places.
Even the seed Banana that I started for outside is happy…in spite of it’s “bestie” that hangs out under it all the time!   That’s Ginger…she is one of our household pets…
She has SUCH a hard life.   (I often have to lift her out of the way so I can water!)

Well….that’s it for me!   It’s your turn!

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!

You can look like a million bucks on the outside…but if you have an ugly heart, that is all that anyone will remember…  Just sayin’!
