Suddenly you can see the grown plant in the seedling

Even though it’s not -quite- spring yet here in England, there’s still lots going on in our kitchen (currently our bay window is a makeshift greenhouse) and every morning I rush downstairs with the children to see if anything new has germinated, and note any changes in the seedlings.

My favourite thing, is when you can suddenly see the grown plant within the seedling – such as this beautiful microscopic version of a grown dill leaf that you can see within these tiny plants this morning.


    1. Thank you for stopping by my little site 🙂 It’s funny you should say that – because last year I had lots of trouble, as something kept eating my dill seedlings, munching both leaves and leaving just a stump of a stem … so this year I’ve got them on the kitchen windowsill, until they are nice and robust and well past the seedling stage x

    1. I have the opposite problem, filled with enthusiasm – we planted some cucumber seeds on our windowsill two weeks ago and now they are huge, and threatening to take over the kitchen … and we have until Mid-May before the frost is gone and we can pop them outside 🙂 I think I’ll follow your example and plant a second batch later on, so we have a longer crop.


    1. Thanks for stopping by – I really enjoyed your post on wildflowers – we’re about to scatter our own wildflower seeds here too 🙂 We have two large buddleias for our butterflies, getting mainly Red Admirals, Cabbage Whites and Peacock butterflies in the summer … I hope the dill will entice some different breeds …

      1. Sounds great…have a fun planting and then watching the visitors to your gardens. We don’t have the Admirals or Peacocks…not even sure what the Peacocks are…will look them up. 🙂


    1. Thank you so much 🙂 I was looking at the pics of your garden on your website this morning, it’s beautiful. I’ve definitely been inspired to try and decorate our garden a bit more – I love your pic of the tree with the candelabra!

    1. You’re very welcome, it’s a lovely site, and I really like the candid photography of the people you meet on your travels. Definitely agree on checking on plants many, many times throughout the day! 🙂
