No space is too small to enjoy the pleasure of homegrown somethings sometimes.

Urban plant still life

urbanplantstilllifeSpring has arrived – tentatively, but percebtible. Still, you have to look closely to find its traces in the city streets. This little flower is one of them, sheltered by a house wall, surounded by the snow’s gravel and the city’s garbage. And yet, it made my day.


Come up!

chilipepper2003Just in time for spring, this tiny chili pepper made it through the soil. Now, all we need is a lot more sunshine (and the weather forecast looks promising, indeed)!

Hello, first signs of spring!

soon_soonIt would be too early to celebrate the arrival of spring, but the first green leaves in my flower pots assure me that spring will arrive eventually. These fleshy leaves are from the sedum that is a newcomer to the balcony and will experience its first spring here. So far I am glad it made it through the winter and I am curious to see what is going to happen.
