I wandered into the conservatory after a long and busy day, and a smile was brought to my face. I spotted through the moisture of the yoghurt pot little green leaves, so I peeked inside and saw my little sunflowers shooting up. I find that Activia intensely creamy yoghurt pots make excellent individual covers. Especially as the council here don't take them to recycle.  So nice to find yet another use for them. My gorgeous yellow happy flowers are on their way.

After some excited clapping I popped out to the small 3 tear greenhouse under the kitchen window to see what was happening with my other little seedlings.  Much to my delight more little green shoots were appearing through the soil.

My red salad herb mix that I brought a year ago from Jekka's Farm has lots of shoots. I was really excited to see so many seeds had sprouted as I'm not great at keeping my seeds in the best conditions. I will have to thin these out at the weekend I think to make the most of them now they have struggled to appear.

Like wise my Cosmos have done really well. Again these were seeds from last year and will now need some tlc over the weekend. I'm really looking forward to having these in the garden later in the year. Cosmos always remind me of an amazing holiday Bongoing through France and bring a smile to my face. And yes mum mouse some will be coming your way, and to Keynko if you want some to go with your beautiful new path. 

Only one little row of green leaves met my now rather smiley face as I looked under the cover of my multiple salad leaf tray, no cress, lettuce or spinach. Just the rocket pushing through and showing that some little seeds no matter how poorly stored can bring leafy goodness.  

Sadly no tomato leaves popping through the soil yet maybe they just need a bit more sunshine - fingers crossed. 

So all in all a rather exciting day on the growing front with lots to celebrate and also things to learn.  Just the way I like it nature is such a wonderful thing.
