Go green in March

It is March and we still have a snowy and cold winter going on here in Stockholm. (Yes, you can actually go skiing outside my house in the middle of the city almost). BUT the plants are starting to wake up due to the more hours of light – thank heaven! And I am taking flowering shoots from almost all plants in the house. Figue, orange tree, myrsine (my new favorite you see in the pic below next to the tête a tête) – I take shoots from them all.

Elephant ear and figue.
If you like to read books about gardening I can really recommend the one you see above – The secret gardener” by Elin Unnes (not so secret any more). Still after some years it is really readable and I learn new stuff about plants and gardering.
