Nothing much has happened in the past week since I last posted. The weather has been wet and cold. Not very conducive to me staying awake and doing work so I haven’t bothered. Not the best thing to admit but there you go. Honesty counts for something doesn’t it?
So just what has happened? Well… A few things…
I bought a set of solar powered dragonflies. They were on cheap and I was bored waiting for the wife’s (late) train to get in. I then put them up and they worked! lol… Bit crap but I like them. B-)
My very established Aquilegia has started to put out a few flower spikes. Not as many as I would like but there are more pushing up under the foliage that you can’t quite see yet.
My Cherry has put out a load of green growth… No blossom though… Does the blossom come after the green or before? Maybe it needs to be established before I get blossom and fruit. Answers on a postcard to the usual address, thank you.
The strawberries in my vertical gardening are setting flowers already. Barely any green and already flowers? What is this madness I see? O.o
The Tulips in my bulb pot are opening. Windblown and cold battered already but they are there, so yay?
My Rudbeckia “Black Eyed Susan” has started to push up. only small starter leaves but they are there. I’m glad they survived the winter. Although I must admit that there doesn’t seem to be as many growth points as last year. That may not be a good thing.
The Geraniums I saved from work last year are already starting to put flowers out. Not even got them outside yet and some are racing off!
Also… Finally some of my tomato seeds have germinated! About bloody time. I must have planted at least 3 dozen seeds at various times so far this year… Only these have germinated. I hate growing from seed at times. >.>
And finally…Speaking of seed germinating. This… The wife was cutting up one of her Pink Lady apples and found a couple of seeds that had already germinated! O.o
After a look on Google I found that while it’s not a common thing, it does happen! It’s a lot more common with peppers and a bit common with tomatoes from what I read but any seed can do it. Also… They look wierd!
