My carnation seeds have started to sprout! Nothing else in my flower seed tray is showing signs of life, but I’ll take what I can get. So far I can see seedlings in two of the five cups. I am beyond ecstatic. 🙂
Today, Eva and I went to her grammy’s house to plant surprise pansies. We spent a couple hours outside preparing the area and planting. Eva slept through most of it.
I took the liberty of surrounding her mailbox with flowers. She never plants anything there, and I don’t know why. I love the look of mailbox gardens.
While I waited for Eva to wake up, I googled information on Mexican sunflowers. My mother-in-law gave me some seeds, and I wanted to research the proper care. While doing that, it dawned on me that I could try planting regular sunflowers, too, using some of my mom’s birdseed. I found some black oil sunflower seeds in the basement and stole a handful.
I’ll plant these guys later tonight. It’ll be cool to have some ginormous flowers in my garden come summer!
Before ending this post, I’d like to share a picture of my Tete-a-tete daffodil. It’s still blooming, but the leaves have spread out quite a bit. I hope that’s not a sign of trouble. I’d like to keep it as an indoor plant if possible. If I can’t, I may have some daffodils it could join out near my shrubs. Something’s coming up out there, and I’m pretty sure it’s daffodils. I think the guy who sold us the house may have planted flower bulbs. 🙂
