Bursting!

(It goes ping when its finished!)


I can't wait for Spring. I'm busy planning what I am going to grow this year. What's on your list?

fantastic photo! I've got an entire hillside to re-do! I talked to a landscaper today. He's bringing in a bunch of dirt to build up an area that slopes, and I will need to plant shrubs - or something - to hold the dirt in place. My mind is spinning!

I haven't really planned a whole lot of anything yet, other than I'm going to put nigella all around the borders (it dwindles after a few years here). Reading other people's blogs is inspiring me, though.

Wonderful photo. I've had alliums self-seed regularly, which takes care of those. But as for planting, this year I'll be thinking trees and shrubs – and clearing lots of space to give them room. In 2010, I'm starting afresh with the big stuff.

Aren't Allium seedheads wonderful??

I planted lots of Purple sensation this Autumn and cannot wait for them to comeup!

Very exciting.

Exciting photo! cracked seed casings... like comets ... a whorl... great movement. My ideas of 'which to grow ' have not quite germinated.... I am always late! Drat! ;-)

What an exciting Allium seed head explosion! I'm redoing a flower bed in the front of the house. Since it's in shade and partial shade should be an interesting challenge, especially since I'll use mostly annuals.

I have some new Alliums to plant. Is it wrong to hope that some of my plants might have died during our snowy winter. I am that desperate for extra space.

Great shot of a seed head. I think I will just go with the flow when the mood takes me.

Gotta love the line: "seeds dreaming beneath the snow..." Beautiful shot of the seed head!

Anna said...

That great photo shouts out ping! No definite plans here yet other than I must finish sorting out my seed box then I will take stock :)

Carrie said...

oh god don't you love Allium seed heads!!!? I have two vases of them in the dining room from last year I just adore them, oh and there are 3 stems behind me too. x

That is what i call AWESOME! Great photo! ...and you reminded me of my once-upon-a-time-favorite Kahlil Gibran. I recall "you have to be patient with the caterpillars if you want to be acquainted with the butterflies"! thanks for that picture, you enduced me to regurgitate and recapitulate, and further dream!

nice photo!
-- I'm ready for spring too. I'm planning on doing lots of pruning this year. Just got some bottle-neck gourd seeds and I'm planning lots of red flowers for the hummingbirds!

Amy said...

That is a really cool photo! I just read it is allium. I wasn't sure what it was and that's what I like about photos so close up. It makes them interesting!

Perfect title for a beautiful photo!

Excellent picture.
Looks a bit like a choreographed explosion of popcorn.

Carol said...

Lovely picture

Lesley said...

Fantastic photo-in fact all your photos are!

Less what I am going to grow-in the sense of something new. More what I am going to do with what I have got already-edit, move, rearrange!

Best Wishes
Robert

A splendid poem to match an equally stunning photo. Seeing everyone so excited, ordering seeds for planting, I have sowed some in my garden too. Hopefully they germinate into healthy blooming plants.
