hello world!

a few days ago, the day when the sky was clear after days of continuous heavy rains (see my post here), i was giddy sowing different seeds from YATES i got from our local supermarket.
most of these seeds, i haven't had experience growing (except for zinnia and sunflower).

full of hope, i carefully placed the tiny seeds in the tray (recycled ice cream container from our kind neighbor), covered them with plastic wrap, soaked the bottom of the trays in water for a few seconds, and checked them every day to make sure the soil is moist and they get enough heat from the morning sun.

after a few sunrises, these are what i got (^_^)
 the little seeds have awakened from their sleep...saying hello world!
my zinnias in different colors (orange, pink, purple, and green envy)
 cosmos
a little leggy but doing fine
 calendula
trying to open their dainty leaves 
english daisy
getting a little bit of sunshine
 livingstone daisy
a bit crowded but still happy
 clarkia
reaching for the sun and speaking of sun...
here's my sunflower still a little sleepy.

too bad the pansy, larkspur, dill, and impatiens haven't germinated yet.
but for now, i am delighted by this little miracle in front of me.
i am grateful for these simple joys that put a big smile on my face.

All your new starts look great. I do a little winter sowing and am always happy when I see those first ones starting.
