Gardens & Parks, Spring feelings, Sirkka Jalava

I told you about sawing seeds for three days ago. Now the seeds have grown a little, I can see small, tiny sprouts come up from the soil under the canopy top (a dictionary word). You can also see plants that were rooting in water in their pots for growing up. Later they will be outside in the garden. I have more of them, but I can´t draw them all.

The sun is shining so I have  hung out the laundry I washed,

  4. That's quick!....you must have *'green fingers' Sirkka...(* a phrase to describe somebody who is good at growing plants). It's so nice to see a glimpse into your part of the world with your paintings.

  5. I love your "at home" wonderful garden paintings here! Love the idea of sowing your own seeds to plant outdoors; and hanging laundry out to dry. My mother had a clothes line outside when we were growing up and the dried by the sun sheets always smelled so good. Lovely paints as usual!!!

    1. Thank you, Lynn. I guess you dont need to so any seeds to plant outdoors, you can saw perhaps directly outdoors. Here it can be cold nights untill to the beginning of june, so the plants which needs a longer time before flowering must be sawn indoors first. One of the good things with living in countryside is that you can hang out the laundry to dry! And yes, clothes smells so good after that!
