Winter Sowing Update

Spring has finally arrived! I was happily pruning rosebushes in the 70 F (21 C) sunshine today. Another container has germinated: Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa) that will be planted in my new Butterfly/Hummingbird garden. And my lilac bush is covered with buds. Life is good.

That looks like a great list! Have you grown Cosmos "Seashells" before? We are tying it for the first time this year.

Marc, according to my records, this is the third year that I have grown it. I posted a picture of it here for my very first Green Thumb Sunday post!

What a lovely list, there are many of my favorites on it. Why am I not surprised? :-)

Today in my front garden I saw that one of my snapdragons (that I'd sown last year) was in flower again. It's a white one with a lovely scent.

I'm looking forward to seeing your snapdragons in flower when their time has come!

Yolanda Elizabet, snapdragons have a scent? I can't wait to smell them when they bloom!
