I was inspired by Sue at A Corner Garden, one of my absolute favorite garden blogs, who was inspired by another garden blogger (isn't that the way it goes?) to do a summer/winter photo post of some of my garden areas. I took all of the winter photos this morning, and the others are from June/July 2009.
I purchased some seeds to winter sow today! Got a tip from Garden Web that seed racks were out at Home Depot...and sure enough they are. I picked up some empress of india red nasturtium and some classic red poppies. I think poppies are becoming one of my favorite flowers. Next to Iris's who's blooms are short but pack such a powerful punch when they unfold.
