Seeds coming up---mood follows...

Oopsy, did I start these sweetie peas too soon?
How it gladdens the ole thumpin' muscle to see these sprouting.

Yes, yes I know, too many seeds in each cell....I'll fix that later.
In the meantime, hi everybody!

white parrots fresh from overwintering in my refrigerator

It's hard to see the wrinkly and distorted petals in the photo because the tulips
are white, but they are something to behold.

pretty peas

I don't grow any veg at all, because I can't build a
fence or sit with a shotgun to pick off the rabbits.
Oh, and I don't eat much.  But isn't this the best
picture of peas ever.  From a century ago.  From
the always enchanting blog Spitalfields Life.
