Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Jan 8, 2010

Welcome to the first Fertilizer Friday of 2010!!! This is the beginning of a brand new year, and gardens, and garden tours!
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 are all welcome...the more the merrier!
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!
I would like to add, that if you are not a 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 am not able to share one new thing! I am sharing the same old plants..BUT in a new setting.
I am getting my greenhouse slowly set up to plant the spring crop of annuals, so I had to remove the houseplants that were filling it. They are now back inside the house, (and some not so happy to be there) and FILLING the whole thing!
My living room feels like a rainforest in the evening. I didn't realize how much everything had grown, until I had to remove an arm chair to accomodate them all! Funny how they all fit last
My Banana...
Swedish Ivy-Nicco...(hates it in the living room)
A purple wandering Jew....that we started together from a cutting a few weeks back...doesn't seem to mind the living room sofa table.
My Green wandering Jew...still happy enough -for now.
The sunroom is BURSTING!!! there are three rubber trees, and several hanging is very crowded and live in there...just the way I like it! The room is cool in the winter, so I have to have cold tolerant plants out here. The back door is open and closing all day long, and if I had tender plants, they would die quickly....
My largest Christmas Cactus is still has been blooming now since November! Seems happy enough to be in here! My gigantic spider plant (used to hang in the sunroom) was too large to hang, so she sits now on top of the old stereo in the living room. Remember the seed pods I shared a while back?
I have begun the harvest!!!! Several of you gals are getting seeds very soon!
I have begun the countdown to spring here in Alberta...enough snow...cold weather and dreary skies...bring on the sunshine!
So? what do you have to dazzle us with? Grab that camera and share! Can't wait to see what you all have going on in your zones! Don't forget to link in with the mister linky below!
