Several sprouts a sprouting! Plus, GRAND Social No. 298 link party for grandparents

Several sprouts a sprouting!

Not long ago, I shared with you photos of James getting my seedlings started for spring sprouting and eventual transplanting. I promised updates along the way.

As promised, update No. 1: Several seeds have sprouted!


Such starts may not be a biggie to some, but to black-thumbed me, that many sprouts—plus others I didn't photograph—are a sure sign of good things to come.

Gardening wisdom in Colorado goes that you wait until after Mother's Day before putting any plants in the ground or outdoor containers as many our worst snowstorms historically happen in April. So wait until Mother's Day I will. Which means, I hope, I'll have even scads more seedlings for sticking in the ground once it's safe and sound to do so.

GRAND Social No. 298 link party for grandparents

Now for the real reason you're here: the GRAND Social link party! Thank you for participating!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment, even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
