N for ABC Wednesday



 
Naissant: nascent, rising or coming forth

The word appears far too large for these tiny green shoots that are trying to grow into cilantro after being planted indoors last week in emptied K-cup coffee containers. I'm sure this is the easiest part.

It snowed here again today but it didn't pile up. Several dozen of these tiny green things looked outside and were happy to be indoors. Me, too.

This is my first experience with indoor planting and I have to say my garden lives only in my mind. How about yours?

I like a lot this word, it's a feeling of new start and hope!
Nice one!

Yes, I feel the same way about the word -- new start and hope -- it's how I feel about my move that's coming up soon! Great post for the N Day! Love seeing the little things trying to grow!! Have a wonderful day!

It is a great word. I'll have to use it :). And I'm happy to be inside right now too, though I don't have any sprouts to keep me company.

my yard and forest are also white, every morning (3) fresh snow that melts throughout the day....
lovely to see your wee plant.

Another great word. My garden is in a bit of a mess at the moment. Must sort it out.

Great N word for this week. And my garden? Well, we had hail this morning! Can you believe it? We're having a cold spring and everything seems to be behind, and if the blossoms come out, they get frostbitten! Let's hope for a nice summer and a long fall. Good luck with your indoor gardening!

Perfect N-word for spring!

Q said...

A nice nibble is nudging its way out into the world. Your sprout has found its niche while Spring snows fly. Had it been outdoors it surely would have been nipped.
Hopefully warmer days are nigh.
Very fun N day.

I agree with you about that word!
My windowsills are full of all tiny plants.

Christine said...

We were late this year, I guess we'll have to buy all our plantings. I haven't looked outside yet to see if my rhubarb is poking out yet. Lovely post.

Meryl said...

I love your take on "N". And I love the spring as the bulbs shoot our of the cold hard ground.

Paula Scott said...

LOL! Yes, the garden in my mind is far better than the one in my yard! What a great word (again)!

Great choice for N - I have a few nascent pots sitting on window sills too, - and glad to be indoors when the odd snow shower descends uon us.

Ann said...

what are the white stuff?

I hope it does get cold again, otherwise it might be a waste of time sowing these cilantros.

the French word "naissance"means "birth"and the word French word "naissant"means "beginning. Interesting to see that you didn't need a Napoleon to adopt French words in your language. Far before Napoleon Great Britain was ruled by kings who only spoke French, like William the Conqueror and his descendants. English is an interesting language and thanks to bloggers like you we discover more and more that it is a very rich language too.

We ar 27 today here in Taiwan and is really into late spring already. Always like your choice of words.

Carver said...

Great words. My garden is a wild and wooly mess.

Joy said...

Wow snow, had too much this year. It is wonderful to see everything growing and the frothy blossom. We are having an unusually warm April, its warmer than the Mediterranean here at the moment, yet we are still having a touch of overnight frost.

Friko said...

Much against their will I am keeping pots of geranium seedling and shooting tubers of dahlias under lock and key for another week or two. They are well beyond nascent, pre-pubescent is more like it.

Someday in the future I would love to have a garden. Right now we live in a highrise condo, so I have to be content with a few houseplants. But I do love to watch things grow. Lovely post for "N" day!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a wonderful day!
