March – in like a lamb

Another lovely day –

Another lunch in the garden

And things are sprouting.

In this case Ricinus communis Impala (Castor oil plant)

(The seeds are poisonous)

    Now we all know that my imagination can run riot a bit at times, but I think I may have outdone myself this time. As the picture came up, my first thought was of a prehistoric baby bird! Sorry Karen. I’m sure he’ll turn into a lovely plant.

  4. Now that is a gorgeous photograph. What a welcome sight. I’m thinking about eating lunch outdoors. How wonderful that would be! I love the look of Castor Bean Plant ~ they have such amazing leaves. Now I’m imagining the scent of Daphne. I love its scent. I wish that I could grow Wisteria here. Alas, I can only imagine what its scent must be like.

  6. A very cold lamb so far – and slug free (so far!).

    I haven’t even put any seeds in soil yet. Next week, I will start my ten week things. Kate is right, that is a great shot. Did you manage to do it yourself?

    Don’t you think beans are so rewarding? They come up huge, and grow two inches a day.

  8. Looks like a baby Triffid to me. You can confirm that when it starts walking (or crawling).

  9. Yikes, I’m skeered of triffids! It’s a great photo, for sure, and reminds me that I haven’t yet started anything for seeds. I’m a bad gardener.
