After our first batch of runner bean seeds failed to germinate (we did use last year’s seeds), I bought new seeds and they are just now starting to raise their heads above the compost.
The way they lift their ‘heads’ suggests it is a great effort . . .
The broad beans are also germinating as are marigolds.
The sunflower seedlings look a bit happier than they did several days ago . . .
Out in the garden itself, the comfrey is just about to burst into flower. The bees love these . . .
. . . and a small holly seedling, that really looked quite bare in the winter, is really putting on new growth . . .
It’s a marvellous watching everything emerge, stretch and grow in the garden.
