Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Dec 11/09

Welcome to Fertilizer Friday!!! Today is the day we all get together and flaunt our flowers!
Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors!
Now...if you are not familiar with the winter rules here...you will be...since I have ZERO to share...my gardens are bare...I (and other gardeners in similar climates) are sharing our favorite photos from months, gardens, years gone by, or the current indoor gardens and houseplants that they have. Those who have real live beauty to share are doing just that!
So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
I have absolutely NOTHING new to share today...NOTHING. Why? Funny you should ask...
THIS is why. This photo is of the flower bed in my header photo. We got a foot of snow here one morning last week...it is currently -15F here...that's -27C for all of us Canadians...The day we got this dump of snow...we also got all the way down to -37C overnight and I was scared that my greenhouse would not survive the night. (hey Justine...do you see the orb? I took 3 photos of the same thing and that orb -no it is not a moon or a garden object- it only appeared in 2 of them....the first and the third!)
She made out just fine! My little gas heater worked overtime, but the plants inside are still just as alive as they were for the last few months! WHEW!!!! The cold weather did however make one of the large windows crack badly...and now I am redneck mending...with packing tape until it is warm enough to replace the first panel on the long side....again.
Today I am taking a look back at the header bed...the top photo of this post is the current state it is in...
This is what it looked like in 2006. My current greenhouse sits where that little one is now...and then some..lol
This is the same bed in 2007
You all know this photo...it is the header photo for my blog...this is 2008And this is 2009.
Oh how I miss the summer!!!! Shoveling 4 foot drifts when the wind blows...BLOWS! It is snowing again right now and is expected to continue tonight...we are expecting almost 4 inches tonight!
Now....you guys know what to do...DON'T FORGET TO LINK IN!!!! Let the other gardeners see your glory...or ( in my case) daydream of warmer days!
Blogger is very slow this week...I will be there as soon as I can!
