  1. Great shots, really like the last one and best of all, no nasty bugs.

    1. Yes, Pat, still finding only one bug a week on average now. I think we're finally ahead of the game!

  2. Nice. New growth for spring!

  3. Up close and personal beauties....oh the hyacints....one of my favorites, their scent always reminds me of Easter..I have a Christmas catcus with just one flower on it..you too, wonder what causes that? I've always heard they are the kind of plant which will flower and light dependent to do so.

    1. Faith, hyacinth is one of my favorites, too. Hard to believe a little flower can put out so much aromatic joy! I don't know for sure what makes the Christmas cacti bloom so long after Christmas, but I'm certainly not complaining! :)

    1. Yes, CameraGirl! New hope and joy for spring!

  5. it is nice to see things grow. .) I think I saw a hoya somewere. One of mine is in bloom right now. :)

    1. My new hoya is just a baby, Monica, so I'm not sure how long it will take to bloom, but I'm certainly ready whenever it happens!

  6. I am so JEALOUS! :)

    What a wonderful plant collection - you obviously have a super green thumb!

    Could that mystery plant be cosmos? Or maybe cornflowers? It looks familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it. And sage vs. thyme - it looks like thyme to me.

    It's high thyme we had some spring weather here in Wisconsin. Enjoy yours! :)

    1. I don't know about a green thumb, Sue, but I sure do love seeing the new growth. And flowers make something very happy explode with happiness deep down inside.

      I don't know if I have planted any cosmos, but it certainly will be welcome, I guess no matter what it is. Now that the seedlings are getting a little bigger, I see the ones I featured here are sage. They have textured leaves. The thyme, which is not growing as rapidly, still has those thyme-shaped leaved. I just couldn't remember which one I planted in which pot!

      We don't have spring quite yet; seven inches on the forecast for tomorrow. But oh, how we need the moisture...

    2. Oh, and the spices at the top are basil! Couldn't remember what I planted in that pot, either!

  7. Thank you for all this green :).

    1. You are very welcome, Neferi! I could do a Wordless Wednesday like this every Wednesday for the next three months and never get bored with all the growth!
