We have had entirly too much rain and are expecting more....here are few pretties from yesterday.
This is the only Camellia bud ...maybe the below temps for two weeks didn't agree with her.
A little color around the mailbox..there is actually some new growth on the brown Clematis vine on the post...I think a trim is in order.


Do you have any seedlings sprouting? If so, mention it in the comments, I would love to see them.

No seedlings yet...too early here in N WI, but Oh, do you give me hope.
It was such a thrill to see some green sprouts...thanks for sharing...
stay warm to Darla from Darla

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Darla first congrats on the Silver Medal winner at GGW. I loved your picture of the ice drops.
You have a good start on your seeds girl. Looking good!
I love the yellow bird in the picture although I do not know what kind it is.
It is fun to see new things growing again.

Darla said...

It's a puffed up Goldfinch HHG. Blogger will not let me edit today..sorry!

Dave@TheHomeGarden said...

It's definitely time to put out some seeds! I'm hoping once this snow melts to put some spinach in some beds. For now I'll just have to work indoors!

fairegarden said...

Hi Darla, wow, you have some magic going on there with sprouts so quickly! Thanks for the link love. Your garden is going to be fabulous. Most of my seeds are outside in milk jugs, etc. ala Monica's winter sowing method, including seeds from you, my dear friend. Too cold and too soon for them yet, we have crunchy snow on the ground still, what a rarity. Our best seedlings are those that were sown in October in the greenhouse, dahlias and salvias. A lesson to learn from that I believe.
Frances
Did I congratulate you for the photo silver prize? If not, well done! :-)

Lois said...

I love it when the birds fluff themselves up like that! I saw a bluebird pair in my front yard yesterday when I got home from church.

imac said...

I'm seedless at the moment too.
You are doing well over there Darla.

Dani said...

We have seedlings! WOOHOO!

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ Looks like your garden is off and running. Sprouting seeds are one of the major joys of gardening, don't you think? To get a tiny green thing out of a tiny brown nut, nothing short of miraculous.

No mention of your beating heart. All is well, I hope and pray.

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

The seeds and seed pods and flats brings back a lot of memories. I tried to do that and did it for years using florescent lights like they use these days to grow marihuana plants. And it worked but not like these look.

bennie and patsy said...

I want have seedling until March just to cold here yet.Love seeing all the others with them.
Patsy

tina said...

It's so exciting to have seeds sprouting! We are under 6 inches of snow and I simply can't wait!

mothernaturesgarden said...

You have a head start for sure. Each sprout fills me with hope and visions of what's to come.

Becca's Dirt said...

I am still babying the lettuce and broccoli. Just got the shelving unit put together so now I have a little bit more room. I will be putting more seeds this week.

Dorothy said...

I don't have any seedlings to show you, but I lilke seeing yours! You will have so many good and pretty things growing in the yard before you know it!

Gail said...

I so wish we could order the weather! Maybe our great-great-greats will have that ability! In the meantime we soldier on~~Your pretties are wonderful and it's good to see the seeds popping up! gail ps

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

I think that I am going to hold off a little longer before starting my seeds. Last year the sunflowers were over 2 feet tall, and it was too early to put them outside.

Your seedlings give me hope, that soon it is going to be spring, everywhere.

Tom said...

I saw this post and all the seedlings and I was reminded of this poem...

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells,
and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

You have lots of work ahead of you... but the results will be beautiful I'm sure Darla

Amy said...

Looks like you have a great start. I am planning on growing tomatoes. I am starting out small and I will gradually add more...we will see how it grows....:) I like the purple blooms around your mailbox.

Grace Peterson said...

I'm glad to hear it, Darla! Keep up the good work, er, potassium!

VW said...

Those seedings are looking good. I'd better not start mine for a couple of months or they'll get way too big before the last frost date of May 15 here.
And it was nice to hear from you at my blog - thanks!

Tom - 7th Street Cottage said...

I've got lots of seedlings too. Blue flax, siberian wallflower, rudbeckia, malva zebrina, a couple hollyhocks, some hibiscus (seems early), and several others I can't remember. I need to get out there and sort my sprouts from my non sprouts. A few more weeks of growth and I'll be planting out the hardiest perennials. You can do that when you wintersow and leave them outside from sowing through planting. Starting seeds indoors is almost a thing of the past for me. I'll be showing some more of my seedlings tomorrow. Looks like they made it! Sorry Barry Manilow.

Deb said...

love your header...pretty birds...great sprouts...

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Darla: What a cool show of the growth and the birds. Just keep your Rooster away from the plants.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Looks like your seeds ARE sprouting and doing well, Darla. We have some bulbs popping up---but they probably will turn around and go back into hiding now that we are covered with ice and snow. ha ha

Love the Goldfinch... He's so fluffy!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

How exciting to see all those seedlings! You're going to have fun filling your garden this year. How neat to have so many seeds from so many gardening friends. I hope you're feeling well, and taking it easy!
PS Thanks for the very nice comment on my post today :)

Meems said...

Hi Darla,
Cute little fluffy bird. Trying to stay warm I suppose. I've still got veggies growing and new seeds sprouting, too... lettuce, radish, greens, cassia alata. I start almost all (except tomatoes)of mine right in the ground. That is quite a set-up you've got.
Meems

Tootsie said...

woooo hooo!!! my seeds are sprouting in Darlas beautiful yard!!!

KarenSue said...

I need to get working in the yard. You have inspired me. Hey, thanks for your sweet comment.
Happy day!

Julie said...

The only seedings I have are getting big now...my collards!!! I planted back in Dec. I believe! Yours all look so promising and fun! Good luck! I think I might like to plant some sort of cactus seeds and see what happens!!!
xoxo- Julie

Noelle said...

Hello Darla,

No seedlings, except for the apple seed my son planted. How exciting to have so many different plants coming up from seed. I especially love Shasta Daisies :^)

Jake said...

How exciting! Some of my seed have started to sprout as well!

Jake

Bangchik said...

Lovely sight indeed to have seedlings sprouting, a sure sign of snow thawing and leaving... ~bangchik

Skeeter said...

I promised the Saint that I would not start anything inside this year. I have the worse luck with seed starting and they also look tacky in the sunroom. Plus the cats can be an issue. I so am tempted after seeing your seedlings though! You might have “slim pickens” but I would be happy with those picks this time of year! The cold birds are so fluffed up and yellow. I assume Gold Finches?

I am grateful for the views out my window, even though soggy...

Jan (Thanks For Today) said...

No seedlings yet. I planted some last year and had some success, so I may try that again. You are surely making progress with yours--that's great;-)

If you'd like to participate in my garden bloggers sustainable living project, I'd like you to. There's a give away, as well. Jan

Matron said...

Haven't planted any seeds yet.. though you have just spurred me on to get myself into gear. I'm sure I could get a few early peppers and chillis into the heated propagator in the greenhouse. It's still below freezing here at night though! brrrr

Alea said...

You have a great headstart! I am praying the groudhof was wrong and going to start some seeds indoors this week. I can't wait to get outside and play in the dirt again!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Look at you! Already getting those little seeds going!
I'm so jealous.
That little yellow fluffy bird is adorable!

sabahat said...

Darla congrats about GGW. Your work is always marvelous and much helpful for each and every individual who is in japanese flower delivery business. I really want to thank you on their behalf.
