ORANGE.COME

clear skies, bright moon

It was an exceptionally clear night last night and very cold.










cold cocoaBy this morning that lovely chocolate covered cocoa shell was covered with a sheet of white frost.











Excitement on the Pip Challenge front;....they say patience is a virtue and look what I've spotted today........orange seedlings



orange dream

Now I very much doubt if I'll ever get a tree like this; but it's going to be interesting to see if I do mange to get a decent sized plant over the course of time.



And maybe one day................squeeze me

The freebie grass seedlings I found the other day and potted up have really taken off. Two are Stipas and one I think could be Fescue. I've got them inside at the moment to give them a head start but will have to harden them off and get them outside once they've filled the pots with a little more root.

I actually did this several years ago! And I did manage to get quite a nice little plant out of it. Sadly, the cats liked it too... sigh.

Ohh, Ruth, it's so nice to see plants sprouting out of the ground. It will be awhile before that happens over here I'm afraid.

We've got about a foot or more of snow out in the garden!
