It's a handmade adventure!

A Sprout!




Carnation Sprout

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.  🙂

  1. Yippee on your sprout! I agree with you, mailboxes are cool when surrounded with flowers.
