Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Jan 22/10

Welcome to Fertilizer Friday!
Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors!
If you are new to this party...WELCOME!!! If you are a regular...WELCOME BACK! Anyone can post plants of any kind...you are all welcome...the more the merrier!
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!
I would like to add, that if you are not a fertilizer...you may still join in. The name Fertilizer Friday actually was coined to remind those of us who like to feed our greens, but forget! Fertilizing is not a must...but the flaunting...IS!
So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
Today I have but one flower to flaunt for you....BUT I do have some shots of my favorite room...almost ready to plant!
This is the 7 year old Geranium that my kids gave to me for mothers day...she is full bloom again...and healthy as a horse...
The shelving is all set up...and the trays and cell packs are ready to fill...
Pots all lined up...and waiting for someone to set some roots...
The heat is on, the fans are blowing...
oops! the water cans are 1/2 empty...but that will change...
The mini blind is ready to be cut into small pieces to make plant markers...(much cheaper and more efficient than wooden labels...)
The soil is thawed..
This is the first four bales of seedling starter mix...I use between 7 and 8 by the time everything is all potted up.
And the best of all?????
MY SEED ORDER ARRIVED THIS WEEK!!!! WOOOOO HOOOO!
Dozens of packages holding hundreds of beautiful seeds...blooms to share and show...to enjoy and admire....
FOCUS TOOTSIE!!!!
NOW...next week is the biggie...on Monday I will officially begin the planting of this year's crop of annuals. But, if I get some time, I will for sure take the opportunity to start a little early...
I have had a lot of projects on the go this last little while, and I have taken a bunch of photos.
I will be planning a big week for next week...including photos of the projects, updates on the planting, AND...A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!
Are you as excited as I am? I hope you will stay tuned for the details of what's coming up...
It is safe to say that I am excited for next week...but not nearly as excited as I am to see what you have to flaunt this week! Throw the tea on guys...I'm on my way!
Please do not forget to Publish the Fertilizer Friday Logo at the top of this post, and link into the mister linky list below. If you do not do this, you may not get as many "tourists" visiting your Friday post.
Wishing you a safe and happy weekend...
Toots!
