~ Fertilizer Friday ~



Welcome to Tootsie's Fertilizer Friday!




After last weekends below freezing temperatures....four { very long } days in a row~

I long for butterflies in our garden, again....




Warm summer days....


Beautiful shades of yellow & pink....


The scent of roses in the air....


Sitting in a pretty blue chair.....


or tea on the patio~



I'm SO ready for spring. Are you?

All of the above pictures were taken in 2009 in our backyard. I don't know if it will ever look like that again { sigh }.....but we sure will try. :)

Y'all make sure and visit Tootsie and all the Fertilizer Friday participants.

Thanks Toots for hosting!

Have a beautiful weekend~ J

I love your blog..and I miss Texas...I used to live in Austin and now live in "enemy" territory--north of the Red River in Oklahoma! LOL. I'm am so ready for spring and your patio and garden border is just beautiful! I can't wait for the butterflies to return. Happy FF. Miss Bloomers/Sonia

Now you've done it....I've caught the spring fever bug from you, lol!! I didn't realize that you had such a beautiful patio! It looks like you have some of it covered too. I'm jealous!

Girl you said it right. I am thinking of warmer days and pure sunshine. Oh and some of those beauties you are sharing today! I love winter but I have had enough already - come on spring.

Beautiful flowers and I'm sure your yard will look like that again this summer. We get some bad freezes sometimes too and most of them snap out of it. Hopefully all of them will for you and for us too - we had a stretch of cold weather and I'm concerned about a few of mine also.

Looks fab! I am so loving these posts - we're almost there!

Jessica

Your garden last year looked great from the photos you have here - and it can only get better each year as the plants mature and send out more and more flowering shoots.

The promise of spring is so lovely.

Jessica, I can't wait for warmer weather either, here in North Carolina we are accustomed to cool weather but it has been anywhere from 15-22 degrees at night, and that is cold for us. I live 20 minutes from Charlotte, NC. Our weather is usually mild.
I read your entry about Cooper and Molly, isn't it amazing how two different dogs can become best friends. Our pitbull and jack russell terrier are best friends too. If you have time come over to my blog and read their story I did for a Metamorphisis Monday. I hope Cooper is feeling better soon and he and Molly will be up and playing like best friends do real soon, Thanks for sharing with us. I always enjoy reading you blog.
Stay warm, Patricia

I stopped by to see if your player was working but it wasn't. Mine isn't either. I was trying to add a new song or two and switch things around. Oh, well. It wasn't meant to be I guess. Hope you're having a great weekend!
