I saw it first!

I am stalking my own plants and flowers. I love them, I call them "my green babies". For me, they are silent pets: lovable, quiet, understanding, full of life, moody, different in preferences and personality.
Each time one of my silent pets is about to bloom, I'm stalking it day and night. I can go check up on it every 10 minutes (maybe something has already changed!). When I see the first bud, it's a national holiday in my home. And when the first flower opens to the world, I give a baby shower :))))




The delicate muscari bells look like little gnomes who bring the secret signs of spring on my tiny balcony.

  2. I feel the same way about my plants! I've been waiting for my pink jasmine and gardenia to bloom. They both have tons of buds and I keep seeing them grow. I know it will be a while from now until they finally do bloom though! I'm also waiting for four buds on my orchid to bloom :) Thank you for sharing your beautiful plants!

  7. Wonderful photo of these beautiful Spring bulbs. When we lived in greece, these plants were to be found growing wild all over the hills of the countryside. Incidentally, their bulbs can be pickled an eaten!

    Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos.

  14. I love how you put words to describe your silent pets. I too just don't stalk at them but also talk to them and I could swear they can hear us. ^_^

    1. Thank you, Kim, plants can surely understand what we are trying to communicate, they are very sensitive to our feelings :)

  23. I'm slowing killing all of my silent pets. I think they may need to start talking to me soon.

    Gorgeous periwinkle color.

    1. Cheryl, take one hour and read on the internet about what kind of condition each plant needs. You're bound to find some solutions! In my first summer here, I killed all my plants, because the south facing balcony wasn't suitable for them.

    1. Thank you, Ewa, maybe I should be ashamed that I stalk my own plants, but I can't help but be amazed by Mother Nature's miracles.
