Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers Feb 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 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!
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.

So? What are we waiting for? Feed your flowers/ houseplants...gardens...snap some photos, link in and Flaunt with me!
I am making progress!!! On Saturday of last week, I noticed that there were a few of my Geraniums popping through the soil! This is what they look like right now!
So far, the germination ratio is fairly good. I don't see a lot of duds...maybe a few late arrivals, and a few no shows...but over all...the germination has been great!
Some seeds may have been a tad deeper than we are waiting to see...if nothing else...we still have plenty to go around. Soon I will be transplanting them to larger pots for the rest of their stay in the greenhouse.
My Mandevilla is doing very well in the greenhouse this winter. She is the very first of her kind to ever grace the plant population here...I quite like it and may have to try for another one.
And.....the most exciting part of this post.....
My LOUFA is sprouting!!! I didn't think I'd have too much success with these....but LOOK!!! Trailrider did good girl! Thank you! I can't wait to see how these grow for me! guys know what to get busy and I'll meet you there eventually!
