    Beautiful!

    Thanks, S. Le! I rarely try for macro shots, and was thrilled at how these ones turned out (like, cropping out over 80% of the photo!).

  3. “come towards the light!”

  4. lavenderbay says:

    Yes, Stephanie, it’s all an evil plot to increase the planet’s Brussels Sprouts!

  5. Seabrooke says:

    Yay for sprouts! Peppers, brassica (Brussels sprouts, from your ID in your comment)… basil and oregano? Exciting to watch everything come up. My first trays are doing great, and I just planted two more I’m eagerly watching for signs of the first green heads poking up.

    Great photos Lavenderbay. New life. The greening of the garden is starting. Yay!

    i love baby plants!

    The photos have rollover tags, Seabrooke. You’ve got the first two right. The others are Butterfly Weed and Wild Bergamot, which I tagged in Latin. It’s fascinating to me what variety there is even among cotyledons! Glad your seedlings are off to a good start.

    Thanks, Livingisdetail! Yes, the greening has started, and even the harvest — this morning at 0500 the deer munched all our tulip shoots to the ground. Are you sure you want some new pets?

    They’re so full of innocence and promise, aren’t they, Goodbear?

  9. livingisdetail says:

    Ohhh, the deer can get in your garden. Oh no! I just had the idea that they trotted around outside on the council land. I’m sorry to hear about your tulips. Maybe I’ll reconsider my position on deer…

    Great close up shots, nice & sharply focused. I am guessing the 3rd is basil & the last looks like a cucumber maybe….

  11. lavenderbay says:

    So far, Livingisdetail — knock on wood — the deer have stayed out of the backyard, but they have open access to the front, which is where the tulips are/were. Oh, and they also emptied the front yard bird feeder this morning. I moved it. But don’t let me dissuade you; lots of Saint Johners would love to ship you some White-tails. (Mmmmbwahahaha!)

    Two of you have guessed basil for the third picture, Tony; I’m gonna hafta plant some seeds soon, you’re making me curious! The third and fourth photos actually show wildflower seedlings. The cucumber seeds will be planted this weekend; maybe some basil, too!

  12. Wow, rollover tags, cool. Some nice native plants coming along there! I just have boring tomatoes started.

  13. I wonder what it means that the first thing I thought when I saw this title was, “Down The”.

    Isn’t it funny how all baby things are cute – even ones with no faces!

  15. lavenderbay says:

    I dunno, Barefootheart — Brandywine, Cherokee Purple, Green Zebra, White Wonder, and Nebraska Wedding don’t sound so boring to me. (Remember, we bought the same packet of heirloom seeds.) 🙂

    Lol, James! I was thinking yesterday about doing a word-association game as a post (can’t remember what word started the idea).

    That must explain my wincing when I have to thin them, Alyson. I pretend that it’s economically practical to use fewer seeds and spread them farther, but maybe it isn’t my head that’s dictating practices after all.
