Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Dec 4/09

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 will be...since I have ZERO to 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!
Today the picking is slim for blooms in my area. I am sharing the Christmas Cacti that I have in the sunroom. I have shared the buds a few weeks back, and today I am sharing the blooms!
I put the three pots into one bigger pot for a better statement.
Pink, red and white.
the white has a hint of pink...
And that's all I have to share. These photos are not the greatest...but at least I have a real bloom that's current! Now it's your turn...take some shots, post them, link in to the mister linky below. I can't wait to see!

I love your Christmas cacti - I'm going to have to get one and see if I can get it to bloom! I could send you a pic of frost bitten geraniums on my porch (kid you not, they've been fine 'til this morning). I'll see if I can bring them in and give them CPR. PAM

I love the XMAS cactus. So pretty mixed all together too.

You are so creative, I love the three different colors together. It's a good thing there are creative people around that I can get ideas from :)
The frost has gotten us here the past three mornings.

Just gorgeous! I bet you smile each time you walk by ;~) Putting the three together worked very well
Have a great day!

I am so jealous of those cactus...I've tried them once and the dog ate them!!!

I meant to say that doing old pictures of our flowers is a great idea. I was wondering what everyone would do through the winter! Good thinking. I have lots of those blooming!!! ;-)

Hi Tootsie, it's been awhile since my last visit, but I'm determined to get caught up again. I love looking at your plants, I have one Christmas Cactus and it's even from last year. :) I travel all summer, so I gave up on plants. I did buy a couple for the porch, but I don't hold much hope for them this summer. I have a new address, so when you get a moment please drop by for a visit.

Hi Tootsie,

I can't believe that we still have a few Clematis in bloom out back. Maybe it's because of all the rain we've had. We did get frost last night, so I'm sure that's the end of them.

Can't take pictures, still waiting for my camera, Pentax is sending me a new one, just wish it would get here soon. :(

Take care, my friend.
