Green Thumb Sunday


Okay, lousy picture but the point I'm trying to make is that there are a few things going right in my garden this spring. Last year I started a Wildflower Garden. I planted bulbs and seeds. These cute little daffodils surprised me with their tiny size. I'm glad to see them back this year. The wild columbine was grown from seed in 2005 and transplanted into this bed. It bloomed last year and was also tiny. This year, the plants are much, much bigger as you can see by the picture. I can't wait for them to bloom!

Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday, visit As the Garden Grows for more information.

Your columbines look very promising and are nice and big. The little dafs seem to like it too in your garden. It's always nice when plants and bulbs return, year after year.

Thanks, Yolanda Elizabet! I love columbine and I especially love growing perennials from seed.

Hi there!

I agree that those columbine look great. Show us another photo, please, when they bloom. It always seem like a miracle to me when plants come up and I didn't have to do a thing (that year).

I've never l lived anywhere that the plants really die back in cold weather and then re-emerge in the spring. I'm enjoying watching it through your camera lense, and thrgough so many other GTS folks! The anticipation ... delightful!
