Lately we’ve been ‘polar-vortexed’ (that’s a new expression); another term that went around was ‘winter in the spring’…all not too happy words, at least for gardeners. But relief is in sight – temperatures in double digits are expected by the end of the week!
So, it is time for the annual spring photo-shoot. Soon, the more advanced youngsters from the germinatrix will go outside (they have become impatient and a bit pale from lack of sun). Just one image from the many I took yesterday.
Come close together – Say cheese!
From the very early germinated and already grown up Capnoides sempervirens, Iris dichotoma, A. pachypoda fo. rubrocarpa and Scabiosa caucasica ‘Fama Blue’, to young babies like Podophyllum delavayi and P. pleianthum.
Among the very new and exciting, Paronychia cephalotes and Silene jailensis, are looking well; good hope for nice grown plants by the summer!
And so many more…(hover over the images for the species names)
