Today is another one gardeners' day when we show what bloom and grow in our gardens. First of all these are crocus, hyacinth and Leucojum, here they are:
They are so lovely sprouting among dry leaves and grass. When all around is brown these small vernal flowers are bright blue, white and pink.
Although flowers pleased me I was upset inspecting roses. Some of floribunda badly wintered and I found their stems with black spots and dead. I've cut them so long until I saw live stem. Now some of roses look like this:

Despite of dead ones there are groundcover roses that are alive and have green branches. Here is groundcover "Swany":
Then I went to see berry bushes, it's a treat to see that small leaves are up from their green buds.
Meanwhile seedlings are growing well in my greenhouse, two weeks ago I had made some cuttings of Impatiens and sowed seeds of annual Dahlia. They both grow fast on sunny shelves. One impatiens has already roots and started to bloom. What do you think - have I to leave this nice flower or better to cut it?
I have some tomato seedlings "St. Pierre" variety and I sowed celery in plastic glasses. I'm not sure if I have to plant these tiny celery seedlings in bigger pots or not, what is your experience?
That's all for now. What is growing and blooming in your garden in mid-April?
