Seed Shopping . . .

This morning I woke with thoughts of this year’s flower garden to be.  Perhaps it was the image of these strawflowers last night before I went to bed.  The apricot to orange hues of the flowers transported my thoughts to warmer days ahead, and set my creative mind in motion.

I “caved”.

On the way to 34th street are Strawflowers. . . Apricot Mix via Floret Flower Farm .

I visualize them dried and tucked here and there around the house for late Summer into Fall house dressing.  They can be gift embellishments. Gosh . . . lovely strung onto natural twine.

Erin’s site inspires me.

Teaches me.

How to Grow
Start seed indoors in trays 6 weeks before last frost. Seed requires light to germinate so do not cover. Bottom water until seedlings emerge. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.

6 weeks before the last frost . . . a reminder we are nearly half way to the next season.

Feelin’ warmer already.
