My garden right now is stuck somewhere between spring and summer, so there aren't too many pick-able flowers around. I'd love to bring in a big vase of lilacs, but the rest of my family is allergic and they would have to be banished to some out-of-the-way corner where their fragrance wouldn't be overpowering. So, although I'd love to fill every room with them, I decided they could be better appreciated outdoors!
This is the first time I've grown pansies from seed and I am delighting in all the cheerful faces that welcome me to the garden every day! There is so much more variety in these compared to what I've seen from plants bought at a garden center.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting IAVOM! I am really looking forward to seeing what others have picked to share this week. I apologize for not commenting on any of the posts last week. It was a really busy week, and now my dog Nellie has 7 sweet, adorable puppies so I'm even busier, but I will do my best to keep up! :)
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading.
