gardening on the windowsill

the last amaryllis - in soft orange
the lemon tree recovering from the frost - looking good
the aloe vera almost getting ready to go out on the patio
three large branches of forsythia from Y's garden, cut this afternoon for me, almost flowering
and in the glass box where R starts his seeds:
ten little pots with sweet peas - they will be planted out in a few weeks
one small pot of basil - the first of many
one small pot of parsley - the first of many
a first lily shooting up from seed

  1. o how lovely. we were counting seeds to plant in their peat pots...then under the covers to spout and wait for a warm earthy day.
