Doesn´t this look like a flower bud? If it is my nektarine will flower for the first time :-) Perhaps I can show You pictures og nekatrines in summer then :-) A nectarine isn´t really hardy enough to grow here so ythis is kind of unique. I sowed the seed six winters ago and it has grown ouside since then. Hold Your thumbs (or cross Your fingers as You say in english) so I can get at least one nektarine :-)
I sowed a lot of seeds this winter and now two of them have started to germinate :-) One really thorny bush that I woun´t even try to write or even remember :-) But I know it´s a close relative to the common Aralias that grows on the american continent. The other one is a yellow larkspur that grows in Persia. It can survive here if it grows in sand and the soil in my garden is mostly sand so I have high hopes that it will stay.
It´s going to rain for two days now, but already on Good Friday sun will come and so will the warm winds :-) I really hope that we woun´t get any more snow now, but one never knows in April.
The swedish name for Good Friday is Long Friday and not to long ago everything was closed that day. Children weren´t supposed to play and have fun that day. If Jesus suffered, so should we :-) I don´t think that the Church of Sweden really understood then that this day isn´t a day of total sorrow. But I think that other churches understood better, that´s why it´s called Good Friday in english I think.
The flower buds has started to come on the potplants too. This is a begonia
Now I´m going to read Your blogs and then it´s time for bed I think. I can´t remember being this tired for a long time. So have a great day and see You Thursday.
and in swedish it´s called an Angelwing begonia because of it´s leafs. The reminde somewhat of angelwings. There is a species that has the exact same leafs but much bigger, they are called Pigs ears begonias :-)
