Magnolia Susan changing and growing

Magnolia Susan

This was taken on the 28th of May 2012, there was still a few flowers left on the tree. But because i had an injury on my right hand I couldn't use the camera for awhile, I didnt capture the change, as much as I would off liked. 

These photos I took of Magnolia Susan 30th of April, 2012

This is a few weeks after I planted the Magnolia, as you can see I have phlox subulata McDaniel's Cushion and stones in the pot.

On the side of the pot we planted phlox subulata McDaniel's Cushion so it would spread and the pot would not look so empty and boring, I also put a few big stones that i brought back from the seaside. It is always important to add a little something if you are growing a tree in a pot.

These photos I took of Magnolia Susan blooming on the 2nd of April, 2012

Cerinthe major purpurascens my first year trying to this plant from seeds.

This is the post from 1st of May, 2012

Cerinthe major purpurascens is one of more of my favorite plants, the big one was grown first, as it was the first time this year i was sowing seeds by myself, i messed up and killed alot of them, only one survived, so i decided to sow again, in one big pot all of the seeds and results were much better. As you can see other pot contains more then one plant.

Growing and blooming in June

Spring 28th of March 2012

Lilium Red Black

My small garden on the roof terrace. A small garden in a very big city.

'Demon Red' Chili Pepper sprout and 'Darselect' strawberry

Bouquet Dill 

Avocado sprout and chili sprout, I put the avocado seeds after using avocados and they all grew, which I didn't expect. At the beginning of June I planted the chili sprouts outside. 
The radish [Raphanus sativus] were grown from the Duchy Original seeds, they grew very well, but because this is my 1st year growing by myself, I will only have a few radishes, but you live and learn.

My garden is growing, very slowly...

I do not know the name of this Lilly, as i sent the package out to my grandmother as there were 3 bulbs per package. 

Magnolia 'Susan'

Pitcher Plant and on the right Ficus Ginseng

An orchid and Tillandsia

I wish I knew the name of this plant, as in baltics the pagan doctors, by that I mean people in the countryside like my grandmother, use this plant as medicine. I will try to find out.

These are seeds i sowed some time ago, I just started my garden, I realized I should off put names on the pots. Until they grow abit bigger I will have no idea what plants they are. So if you start a garden adnd sowing seeds first year will always will be learning.
