A Seed Stash

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Seems I have another secret stash! This one features hollyhocks, verbena, baby's breath, four o'clocks, zinnias (both green and white), cup-and-saucer vine, poppies, morning glory, castor bean, sunflowers, love-lies-bleeding (green and red), cardoon, basil (purple, green, cinnamon), ageratum, cosmos, love-in-a-mist, and five packets of green nicotiana 'langsdorfii'!! Maybe this is the year that I'll make better use of my stash, like the fabric stash, and create a patchwork cottage garden extraordinaire. I'll let you know my progress. For now, the fun, as always, is in the sorting.

When Spring Turns Cold

What to do when the May weather in March turns to February weather in April? Pick as many daffodils as you can and bring them inside to enjoy.

The little duck planter holds my business cards, and the tray is an old oak-framed mirror -- I glued little circles of felt on the backside and voila! A mirrored tray.
