Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers March 5/10

Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors! After an incredibly busy and stressful week, it is nice to know I can relax and take a peek at some of the loveliest blogs-and the gardens they showcase....
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!
Please 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.

This week I have had 6 whole hours to plant!!! I go out to the greenhouse while my lovely assistants are at school. (the loveliest goes in the afternoon only) So, after I drop her off...I run like a maniac to get home....and plant.
Here's where I am as of this week:
The trays are filling up...soil, seeds and water...I have started to run out of space already, so....
My 'senior' geranium needed to move to the garage for a bit. She's way to big!!!
Lots to water every day...especially when the sun is hot!
A view of the other side...
I can't wait till there is a wall of green showing in the photos!
It's filling up fast...
I transplanted the loufa plants...can you believe I have 21 of these??? I am offering some of them to the school. Around these parts people don't know that loufa sponges grow on vines...they actually think they are sea creatures!!! I am an educator now! haha. (your educational post is still in the works)
The Geraniums are growing along. I was a bit saddened when I went to the local greenhouse and saw that theirs are a bit bigger...but that is what happens every year... Mine are always nicer in the end. SO THERE! HA!
I love to see what I have sown popping up...there's nothing like it...
ahhhhh.....Success...(pansy seeds are popping up)!
okay...what ya got? I can't wait to see!!!
hit the garden, photo archives, greenhouse or whatever, snap some shots...and dazzle us with your flaunt!

Have a safe and happy weekend blogging friends and remember:
"there's no point in getting your panties in a knot, it doesn't solve anything and makes you walk funny.

Hi there, I am back for the second Fertilizer Friday! I am a gardener at heart - it soothes me. I love your green house, what a wish come true if I will ever have one!

Hey girl quite a little cottage industry going there - fab to see all those trays just bursting with growth.

I've participated again this week - came home with such aches and pains after getting ready for Mother's Day preps as its on 14th March here in UK - and those aches gave me the inspiration to write!

Hi Tootsie.

Once again, thanks for hosting this party. It has made winter seem a little less drab and a little more green.

Your plants look like they are doing great. Don't let the nursery geraniums get you down, I bet the nursery folks are green with envy of your loufas!

Make sure and stop by and enter my giveaway, it's right up your alley.

And I promise, I won't get any knots in my panties.

Autumn Belle said...

My dear, you are making great progress with those lovely babies! I am posting bread flowers today.

I can't believe you plant so many flowers. My DH use to also, but now nothing. He did grow loofa once and it was such fun. I made a ton of bathroom baskets as gifts. I can't wait to see all your gorgeous flowers in the yard. Hugs, Marty

The Japanese Redneck said...

Your post reminded me to make myself a note to start my tomato plants.

Soon your yard will be bursting at the seams!

Becca's Dirt said...

Good morning Tootsie. I did my first Fertilizer Friday post. I know I didn't link like everyone else but it is still easy for anyone to click and go straight to your blog.

I love what you have going on in that greenhouse of yours. Everything is coming up nicely. I also love to see those little pretties breaking the surface. It makes me smile.

Love the new background. Real nice.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

How exciting to have so much going on in your greenhouse! I bet by next week they'll be even more green in there.
(I keep forgetting to put your logo in, I'll try and get it added to my post this morning.)

I am so thankful to know you dear Glenda. Be sure to check out my video I put together for Fertilizer Friday. I found the perfect place to put my crown you gave me till the snow melts.
YOUR GREEN looks amazing!

Hi Tootsie,
I see you have been a busy gal! Look at all those pots waiting to turn green and lush! I have been so busy trying to clean my house in anticipation of getting our kitchen remodeled that I don't know if I will get anything planted inside this year. I know where my little expandable pots are, though, as I found a bunch while cleaning.

It is currently 57 degrees, the warmest it's been since the first of December. Our grandson just went to sleep, and now, I need to resume some cleaning out. We did spend some time outside today, though.

I put a post up Thursday, then forgot to come here to tell you. I sent people to my sidebar to find you this time.

Hi Tootsie!

Thanks for your advice - am now following Designs by Gollum. Exciting! I think I have my work cut out, but it's great to have inspiration and encouragement. Thanks x

Hocking Hills Gardener said...
