This is a mistake...don't know how this got in here.
My zinnias, profusion apricot, will blend with the orange lilies that were here, and also...I thought that they would look good with all the purples in my garden.
Here is the geranium that I picked out. I am going with more purples and apricots this year.
Asters for the back garden.
Well, here goes again. Last year, in the fall, I said that I wasn't going to start anything from seeds this year. We have had a nasty winter and I haven't seen the ground since before Christmas. So, here it is a nice sunny day (but cold) and I have the urge to get my hands in some dirt. I can't go out and garden, my houseplants have been pampered to death, my amaryllis are fading, bloggers in warmer climes are boasting...so after much thought, I decided to plant seeds after all. Yesterday, I went down to the basement and starting getting ready. Joe put a thermometer down there and it registered 67 degrees....since we put in heating vents. I have a big north facing window. I cleared the shelving unit of plants and put them on a table in front of the window. The shelves have fluorescent lights. My seedling trays will be on those shelves. Now, I have to wait for the seeds to arrive. Last year I planted a bit too early, so I will just have to be patient this year. I am wondering how long it takes geranium seeds to germinate? Why did I tell all that I was going to try these flowers? You all will be watching their progress. The pressure is on and the seeds aren't even here yet. Those 10 little seeds that I bought don't know what they're in for.
