Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
Kim spends more time writing at The Shake these days.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Kath and Andrew often join in as well, although Kath has been quite busy lately and unable to join us.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm continuing with some photos of my new vegetable beginnings.
remember this from a few weeks ago?
look at those lovely red stalks.
They're only a couple of inches long, it will be a couple of years before I can safely harvest any.
I also have mini tomatoes, (cherry or grape I can't remember which) and mini lettuces in mini peat pots, but nothing is happening with those.
Possibly the seeds are too old.
I have newer ones, I'll try those if nothing happens in the pots by next week.
Just to top things off, I've been seeing butterflies this spring. Lots of butterflies. I went to the mailboxes one day last week and there were half a dozen of them all lined up on top, but I didn't have the camera. I did manage to get photos a day later of one on my front table and again yesterday on the front door.
I followed him a bit as he learned to fly...
almost forgot, my neighbour Pat watched me plant the seaside daisies last week and offered me some seeds of a dwarf sunflower. Naturally I said yes....
See that blurry red shoot with the seed still attached to its head?
Dwarf Sunflower. I can't wait for these to bloom. Pots of sunshine.
