Fertilizer Friday

Hi Girls!! First I have to say thanks to Tootsie for hosting Fertilizer Friday and for allowing us to recycle pictures from last summer. This does my heart well because...you know...it's not really pretty here right now.

How much do I love crepe myrtles? Just can't even begin to measure it. I remember sitting in class in high school and looking out at the crepe myrtles that were as big as the two story houses. Ours don't get quite that big here because the winter is colder. However, they are beautiful!

This was planting day for that little basket. She was happy all summer!

Pentas - another favorite of mine. They stay happy all the way through fall.

Now this picture is one of my faves for sure - oak leaf hydrangeas.

Katie was soaking up the sun. She follows me every where in the yard. Just wish she could carry a pile of leaves out when I need her to.

Yes, it's my porch basket again. It's in the garage right now. I've never tried to save the plants before. Hope it works.

This basket was from the pond tour. The lady planted it with miniature plants. Isn't it pretty?

This is on the pond tour also. The people had a small lot but made every inch of it beautiful.
That's it for me today. I hope you all have a nice weekend.
Remember, Spring will come!!


  1. Loved seeing the flowers once more...the sunshine today has been like a vitamin for me.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Such pretty flowers...
    Is Katie the one you had a shower with that time?? tee heee...I have laughed about that so many times...

  6. Your post has me drooling Stacey and wishing it were Spring already. Right now, we are bracing for up to 2 feet of snow with more to come on Tues. Can't take much more of it. Baaaaaa! Hey, that there music on your blog is from one of my fave movies. My oldest daughter and I watch it together all the time. Love it!!! Have a great weekend Stacey!

  7. Your flower pics are beautiful, but your title -- Fertilizer Friday -- had me howling! LOL!


  8. Beautiful little taste of spring
    Thank you!!
    Love that porch basket!!!

  9. I haul stuff into the garage every winter; most of it makes it, a few don't. Hold on, because spring isn't far away now!

  10. Stacey~~~

    I didn't know we could post old pictures. I have been waiting for spring to come to the Midwest! lol!! I'll be in next week, Tootsie!!!

    I love your crepe myrtle. I have only seen it in pictures because we don't grow it up here. It's beautiful. I love your little wagon filled with plants. too!!

    Are you getting snow? We are. It is miserably cold and windy. Ugh. Glad I don't have to go anywhere! ;-)


  11. It's so comforting to see your sign that says there are 43 days until spring!


  12. Oh Stacey,

    Those are some great pictures of your flowers and gardens! I can't wait either to get outside and see some green grass and flowers blooming..until then we have our pictures!

  13. So beautiful Stacey! I can't wait for the the Springtime.

    We are under a tornado watch right at this moment. Yikes!

  14. Perfect timing - this post!

    You know I posted pictures of our ice storm. After seeing your post, I am ready for spring!

  15. it may not be pretty right now...but it sure was last year!!! Can't wait for summer to see more of this! I also would like to give that big old puppy nose a big kiss!!! she doesn't look too much like a diva or anything! what a beautiful baby!
    thanks for linking in today!

  16. This post made my day! Spring is coming even though that is a foreign thought today. I like that you shared these beautiful flower pictures from last year. You are a master gardener!

  17. Oh Miss Stacey, I love seeing your flowers...and I LOVED seeing that Spring count down at the top of your blog...42 days...WOOHOO!!!! HIPPIE!!! I Can't wait!!!

    Hope you are having a great weekend! Nancy

  18. Thanks for the Spring preview! This has been such a hard Winter for everybody. I think we are all counting down to Spring. :)

  19. Can't wait for spring! These beautiful pictures make me long for it even more! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

  20. I adore that basket, Stacey! You must resurrect it for spring and show it again.

  21. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I am glad you stumbled upon it. I love the warm sunny flower and garden photos you posted. I am so ready for Spring even though I live in the south. It has been extremely cold and wet for us this year. I see in your snow pics that you have a pond. We do too and ours has been frozen a lot this year.

  22. Hi Stacey, wow, these are lovely. I must say, even living in Florida, I am looking forward to spring!

    Barb ♥

  23. You're making me yearn for Springness! Look at your little fuzzy face soaking up the sun!
    You're so right - I'll be traveling. Oh, I was telling my daughter how much I enjoyed your snicker doodle recipe and she made me some when we came to see her. I ate them and bragged on them but they were not nearly as good as the ones I made from your recipe! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  24. Stacey, Your pictures make me long for spring! The little iron wheelbarrow is adorable! And the happy basket is spilling over with joy! You have a lovely way of putting plants together. Thanks for the "green", I am 20inches deep in white snow!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Your photos really make me miss summer, will it ever be here again?!! Looks like you all are having yucky weather like we are. Stay warm and keep dreaming of spring!!

  26. What beautiful pictures and we are all dreaming of these springtime pleasures. Gosh, your pond is so amazing! I'm totally jealous. Is it difficult to keep through the winter with all the cold weather you have been experiencing? Love Katie, I have a big black one, Bailey. Wish I could teach her some gardening tricks too!

  27. As much as I love flowers and ponds, you know my favorite photo is if Katie! She's so pretty. I just want to grab her by all that labbie skin around her neck and give her a big hug!

  28. Great post...I love the flowers...and Katy...She is a cutie! Hi, I'm Meme from Screaming Meme...it is so nice to meet you...Stop in anytime for a visit! BTW I love your banner...So cute...Not to mention the name of your sweet blog!
