Roses Started Developing Early

 

Before the authorities ordered to stay at home, I was in the garden. What an amazing spring this year! After a warm winter, April came with daytime temperatures +7 C + 10 C. Roses delight me with their healthy appearance. They are one month ahead of past years. Green stems have many red buds, young leaves will appear soon. 



Rose bushes were sheltered from the winter cold, and even new leaves grew on some roses under the cover.



I pruned this rose very much in the fall because it was sick. I'm glad that buds appeared, it means it will grow well in the spring.


 Sure there are many new growths in your gardens. 
 How are your plants this spring?

The other day I bought three lampreys fish. The fish were ready to eat, fried with spices. I cut the fish into small pieces and warmed it up, added some onions and fresh parsley.
Some people do not familiar with lamprey. It lives in the sea or in rivers that flow to the sea. 
Do you love eating fish?




Take care and stay healthy!

  1. Your roses are looking great Nadezda, and they are much earlier than my roses. Here it's belov 0 degrees almost every night.
    I look forward to see them in bloom!

  2. I have never had lamprey, but we eat fish quite frequently. Will probably have some for dinner tonight. Stay well, Nadezda.

  3. In Poland, we have almost summer temperatures and plenty of sun this week. My roses even have young leaves. We need to water the plants abundantly, because it is very dry.
    In view of the limitations in our lives, I am glad that we have a garden, because except for going to work, to the store and with a dog for a walk, we are not allowed anything.
    In Poland, people were even forbidden to enter the forest and cemetery under a fine.
    Dear Nadezda, I wish you a lot of health to you and your loved ones.
    Hugs. Anita

    1. Dear Anita,
      thanks for your kind wishes. Our lives are similar to your, we have to stay in self-isolation. What saddens me the most is not to see my garden in spring.
      Take care of yourself!

  4. Lovely photos. Here in Poland in my area now is 21 degrees. It is so sunny, we need rain a bit. My balcony is starting look like a garden. There is no many flowers, but more and more. :))
    Warm greetings, stay safe and happy. :)))

  6. Preciosa primavera en tu jardín querida Nadezda. La Lamprea aquí en Asturias es un pez que no se puede pescar, pero si muy apreciado en la cocina. Un beso y mucha salud.

    1. Hola, Lola.
      No sabía estas cosas sobre la Lampea en España. Por supuesto que te gusta la comida con este pescado.
      ¡Cuídate!

  7. Dear Nadezda!
    Your roses are in excellent condition. I understand, you miss your garden very much. Unfortunately, there are restrictions and bans throughout Europe.
    I have never seen and eaten this fish. I love Atlantic cod. It is very expensive but very tasty.
    Be safe! Hugs and greetings.

  8. Good evening dear Nadezda,
    I can imagine how exciting it is to see the roses making a start. And now the time of waiting starts to enjoy to see it in bloom! It's called patience!! (lol) a thing I don't have.
    And the crisis is a big thing also overhere. Specialy when a face comes with the word corona. A brother of my best friend, only 54 years old and healthy, is fighting for his life now on the intensive care of the hospital.
    But I also read the positive story's about the virus. 2 ladys, more then the age of 100 got healthy out of the hospital.
    Have a wonderful day
    Stay safe in good health

  9. It seems like all plants are ahead of schedule here Nadezda. I had already set out my tropical plants because it has been so warm. I had to bring them all back inside today because they are predicting frost this weekend and possibly snow next week! What crazy weather.

    1. The weather is strange, I agree Lisa. We had warm winter and it's dry spring, sometimes with snow. Sure your plants are well and wait for warm days.
      Hugs!

  12. Mi jardín se está poniendo precioso y como está en la casa puedo estar en él. En España se come mucho pescado y a mí me encanta, la lamprea se come mucho por Galicia y es muy apreciada, pero está protegida por que quedan pocas. Espero que pronto puedas ver tu jardín y que las rosas sigan bien. Un abrazo y salud.

  15. Hello. Spring has come to us quickly, but unfortunately the garden is not around the house, I just have to go to it for about 15 minutes and I can't see what's going on there now. You have to be at home. Unfortunately, I only like some fish, e.g. cod, sandwiches. Greetings.
