Seedlings-2020


Despite on human problem with new virus the nature pleases us: the sun, blue sky, new leaves and young plants. This April the seedlings delight me, they want to grow and bloom. They sprout well on the windowsill, bathing in sunlight through the window glass. The first photo is Brachycome, that is new to me. Last year I liked Brachycome ampelous little daisies. In February I had sown white and blue ones, now there are many thin green plants in plastic glasses.

Brachycome

Aster

My favorite late summer flowers are China Asters (Callistephus), I sowed mix of them. Asters grow well, are healthy and I hope to have many nice red, white, blue flowers in the garden.

Impatiens

This is one of three pots of Impatiens 'Tom Thumb' variety. I love them because they're strong and very colorful, having double flowers between leaves. The only one condition they need is to be plant in a shadow place.

Hellianthus

The last one is Hellianthus, 'Teddy bear' variety. I'd like to plant them in a large tub to have bright yellow  bouquet. 

So here are my plans. But nobody knows when the world situation gets better. 
What are your plans for this spring and summer? What about your seedlings?

Stay safe and healthy, friends.

  1. Nature continues regardless, Nadezda. In fact I am sure that the absence if humans has been very welcomed by many creatures, and ecosystems are probably doing well without humans tramping all over the vegetation.

    1. David, perhaps you're right. Nature takes a breath without the crowds of people, tramping all around.

  3. Hello Nadezda, your seedlings look wonderfully green and healthy. You will have plenty of happy colours in your garden.
    Thank you for your comment today. I didn't know or remember your son lives in the US. These times are especially stressing if loved family members live far. But this too shall pass. And we that can enjoy our gardens and nature are the luckiest ones.
    Stay safe and well!

  4. You have so much to look forward to on your window sills. I looked up Callistephus to see what it looks like. I love those little flowers. You are right about nature saving us through this difficult time.
    My blog is still messed up. Mine isn't the only one. It seems that Blogspot is having difficulties. Thanks for stopping by.

      I learned that some photos in my next post disappeared too. I think it's a problem with blogspot. So I downloaded photos once again.

  8. Your flowers promise to be beautiful. You have a lot of knowledge about them. I'm impressed. We sowed vegetables in our garden, so we have to wait for the results. As for flowers, only peonies, hydrangeas and flowering shrubs and trees.
    Stay healthy, my dear.
    Hugs, Anita.

  20. Muitas flores vão crescer logo... no seu jardim.
    Por aqui estamos no outono plantei camomila
    parece umas margaridas brancas;
    Enquanto o covid não vai embora temos que continuar produzindo.
    Abraços.

    Many flowers will grow soon ... in your garden.
    Here we are in autumn I planted chamomile
    it looks like white daisies;
    As long as the covid doesn't go away, we have to keep producing.
    Hugs.
