Just wanted to let you know I didn't forget about the give away! I will post the winner in the next day or so! I've got to get some things done around here first! You know, Husbands to cook for, babies to care for and all that. Lol* I appreciate all the comments and really kind compliments. Your guesses were incredibly flattering. I have nothing too grand to share unfortunately, and my Dad and I even joked that you might all be very disappointed! LOL*
I've been a busy gardenin' gal over here. I should warn you that now since it's officially spring I've got plants on the brain and will probably inundate you with lots of garden pictures. I'm really excited about this winter sowing business and have been trying to recruit some converts but until I have plants to show for I don't think my argument is very convincing. I have now 4 hollyhock sprouts in that jug I showed last post. I'm really hoping to have more soon!
Here is my winter sown/spring sown list so far:
hollyhocks (black/dark purple)
Here's some of the new bulbs I planted this year. Last fall I put in over 100 daffodils...
Here's the iris's from Dad's house...transplanted them the day before yesterday...I hope they bloom!!! Iris's are one of my favorites.
Things I sitll want to sow or buy from the garden center for 2009:
large hyacinths (last years bulbs were eaten by bugs)
