Fun With Seeds

I have accumulated an awful lot of seeds over the years, a lot of them old packets, so as I had a patch of garden I cleared last year I thought I'd give some of them a chance. After preparing the ground, I slung all the seeds in an empty yogurt pot, stirred them together, and sprinkled them over the garden, except for the Sunflower and the Nasturtium seeds, which I sowed in shallow drills at te edges. Raked it over, watered it, and now I shall wait and see if anything other than weeds comes up.

They are just lovely! But there's always something striking about white flowers.

I do, too. I am trying to refrain from purchasing any more because I'm about out of space for them, unless I dig up some of the (extra) dayliles/irises.

Yay for seedlings! I am trying to figure out what I've got that's weeds in my garden. I know the grass is - it creeps in from the neighbor's yard.
White flowers are wonderful, especially at night. They glow. I'm partial to yellow flowers though.

I think I'd keep the daylillies and Iris, I'm sure the tomatoes will fruit well.

I'm so excited! It'll be such fun trying to figure out what they are. Just make sure you're something is a weed before you pull it up!
Yellow is my favorite color. I have some gorgeous yellow irises, though I don't like yellow daylilies as much. Do you have four o'clocks? I love yellow four o'clocks - and tie-dye four o-clocks.

Oh, yes! We have a lot of frond-y, fringe-y things coming up now from the wildflower seeds I tossed down.

Mine too, although it looks terrible on me so I don't get to wear yellow unless it's trousers or a skirt.

Wow, they're gorgeous! No, sadly I don't have any of those but I'll make a note for future growing. Definitely something I'd like to have in the garden.

Frond-y and fringe-y sounds fascinating! The weather's been so chilly here the last 10 days or so mine haven't advanced beyond seed leaves yet. Next week should be a bit warmer, I hope.
I have been told I look best in (a) Bright Blue, (b) Royal Purple and (c) Teal. I still wear screaming, see you coming around the corner yellow, 'cause it's my favorite color!

I need to plant four o'clocks here. I had all sorts of colors in Florida. My BFF would go looking for them, collect seeds, grow them, then plant the bulbs in my yard.

Mom and I were eyeing the fringe-y/frond-y things today when we came home. She thought she saw a baby zinnia. I found a volunteer tomato - bringing the tomato count up to 17. :D
I wear mostly blue, black, red, and pink, all colours I like, but sunshine yellow is the most cheerful colour there is.

Shame you couldn't have taken them with you. they're a gorgeous splash of multicolour.

Zinnias are gorgeous, and yay for the tomato! My seedlings are still too small to identify, but there are more of them and one looks like grass... I did sow a pack of ornamental grass seeds so I must remember not to pull it up as a weed...
I like black, too; and have some neat shades of browns (they make my eyes pop and brighten my skin tone). For work, I have a lot of blue t-shirts - disappointed that the company doesn't use the YELLOW for their logo for t-shirts often enough.

I wanted to take a lot of stuff with me that got left behind in Florida.

My irises are popping open now and I'm so excited. I need to replant one of my Siberian irises as it's not getting the light it needs. It has never bloomed in about three years now.
Black is so very versatile, and it goes with everything. I used to wear a lot of brown, but less these days.

That's the trouble with moving, especially over a long distance. You can only transport so much stuff.

Yay! Bet they're a beautiful sight.
I am very fond of black. :D

I left far too much in Florida when I moved.

They are!
The only downside is that it soaks up the heat in the sun. I burnt my legs wearing black trousers once.

Some of my seedling are developing Aquilegia leaves. Yay!
It does soak up the heat. But it looks so very classy.

Oooo! We think we have some zinnias coming up volunteer from last year.
Nothing is classier than black.

Yay! I've got the A's and you've got the Z's, lol!
Yup. Classic black and white always looks sharp.

Hee! We'll have to figure a way to share pictures!
I'll definitely be posting some online once there's something to actually photograph. Right now the seedlings are too small and I'm still not sue which are plants and which are weeds...
There is always that issue...
