The Survivor

Posted by Magrat (Nordhausen, Germany) on 21 April 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

I'm far apart from being a complete gardener... Some weeks ago I planted some flowers into my flower boxes. But frost came back and my poor begonias were looking like wilting spinach... After a week or two I found this tiny begonia leaf peeking out of the earth...

Welcome to my Aminus3-photoblog!

Please look around and leave a comment, if you like what you see.

Thanks and wish you all the best!
Sincere regards. Magrat

klick, klack.....Guten Abend Magrat,
endlich bin ich zu Ihnen durchgedrungen. Ich bekam keinen Anschluß zu Ihrer Seite. Es ist genau, wie das gestrige Bild fantastisch in Darstellung und Farben. Der braune Hintergrund läßt die leuchtenden Farben im Vordergrund großartig zum Ausdruck kommen. Es ähnelt aber nicht der angegebenen Blume. Aber es gefällt mir trotzdem. Farben bringen Freude und Harmonie. Es ist schade, daß der Frost einige Ihrer Blumen zerstörte. Am besten fangen Sie immer Ende April mit der Pflanzzeit an. 5 Sterne *****
Heute Abend hatten wir wieder einen fantastischen Sonnenuntergang. Die Leuchtkraft der Sonne war so stark, daß ich bald eine Sonnenbrille brauchte um alles weitere zu beobachten. Ich wünsche Ihnen und Ihrer Familie einen schönen Abend und freue mich auf die nächsten Bilder. Danke für alle Ihre netten Kommentare. Liebe Grüße, Christel

I saw you connected to me on Flickr ;) You should look what I put up. ---Hey good for you on the Begonia! If the weather threatens again set a cup over it for the night to keep it from getting frostbit.

What a perfect fly and happily in your picture - not on an edge of my table ;)
I was looking at your earlier photos and they are wonderful!
I hope, your flowers will flower well in the coming summer!
We have still a little snow here and last we had - 4 degrees Celsius, no summer flowers outside yet :)
Have a happy day!
