I've got some growing from spores right now. Weather is almost good enough to plant them out - just waiting for their parent to leaf (er, "frond"?) out to let me know that they'll be fairly happy.

Seaweeds are algae (not flowers, except maybe metaphorically, if you love algae!), and the Sargasso Sea is filled with seaweed.

A photo of one of my fernlings that I'm hoping to plant out soon. I had just spritzed it. Arachniodes, don't know the species.

Where are the asteroid/pull my finger jokes? Rosetta's comet emitting a new jet of gas.
 
Caught in the act - Rosetta’s scientific imaging system OSIRIS has witnessed a new jet of dust emerging from the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Not quite yet to the science orbit.
New Horizons took its first color photo of Pluto and Charon, while Dawn obtained a 20-frame animation looking down on the north pole of a crescent Ceres.
