Up, Up and Away

This made me very happy.  My first seeds of the season, Cosmos ‘Purity’, have germinated, the sight of which bought me great joy.  On reflection, it was a slightly disturbing amount of pleasure.  I may have double fist pumped.  They look like groovers at a seedling disco, throwing some fine moves, so happy to be growing.

After a few stern words, or perhaps inspired/shamed by the cosmos, the cucumbers and courgettes are also making rumblings.  About time too.  Slackers will not be tolerated!

  1. Oh my! You said ‘seedling disco’!
    We actually use that word to describe a few plants that are contorted as such. For example, a group of Joshua trees backlit by the lights of a distant town look like a ‘tree disco’.

      1. Do you have a word for a hybrid of Washingtonia filifera and Washingtonia robusts (or any two closely related species) that mingle when they shouldn’t? We know them as ‘bastards’.
