Sprouts & Flowers

Hello! How is everyones week travelling along so far?
Ours is still soggy! (With bursts of sun & rainbows!)
I finished up three shawls today! Wove in those evil tail ends!

A few more sprouts have broken through the surface of the soil in the hothouse!! I get excited over these little wins! I hate this part of the season when I think nothing is going to grow for me! Waiting waiting!
The above sprout is a silverbeet seedling. (rainbow chard)

Some of the transplanted lettuce seedlings are looking less dead. Others… well… they are looking mostly dead! Not sure about the outside ones!! Will go look tomorrow

This was encouraging! The portulaca seeds have germinated! I had no idea what to expect with those. My sister Rosemary introduced me to this great little plant and showed me how to collect its seeds. I might add they are SUPER tiny seeds!

But hopefully they will survive and turn out like the ones above!

Nearly time to make a decision about where to transplant the rocket to!

Baby onions!
A few more thyme sprouts to keep the first one company

And then a speedy trip around the garden to enjoy some colour before the rain started up and I went back inside to my cosy fire!

A lot of granny bonnet plants springing up

Onion weed – pesty but pretty
Lots of liliums showing

Enjoy your day!
