cindy said...

Wow! thats alot of seeds! I know NOTHING about growing flowers...I spend a small fortune buying little pots of flowers and have my "gardening" friend plant them in big containers for me.....So are you telling me that you grow that beautiful garden of flowers of yours from seed every year?! (they dont just all pop up on their own every spring??!?) Wow!

OK, I am a total cheapo- that is a ton of money!! It is time for perennials!! LOL...I am pretending that I don't spend that kind of money every year as well. It is called plant nursery denial. It is still January and I want it to be spring SOOO badly.
I can't wait to see all these flowers in your yard. It will be a happy explosion of color and scent! : )

Hi Tootsie,

Wow!!!!! What a variety. I'm very happy to see that 'THE BUG' didn't get you, I was worried.

I've been very sad :( I had this Ivy Vine, grown in Canada, that I've loved for years. I must have over fertilized it and now it's dying little by little. I was so proud of it, it never got any kind of bugs, like most of my others did, and now there is very little left of it. On an up note, my vibes about losing it, must have gotten through to our daughter, she ordered an Ivy for us for our anniversary this week. What a surprise !!!!!! But it's still not as nice as the other one was. I have no doubt that your garden will be beautiful again this year.

Hi Tootsie Wootsie! Oh, my goodness! What a list of seeds! Do you have room to grow all of these from sratch? I guess that's not what you call it! You're the best and I'll be waiting for spring to go inside your greenhouse and take a little peek!
Thanks for the visit and hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

I am sure you are having a blast. Are you sure all of those plants are going to fit in the greenhouse?? LOL I can't wait to see your garden. I am backing off on the potted plants this year. DH doesn't want me dragging the hose around because of my shoulder injury. I think I'm going to go through withdrawal. I hope everyone is feeling better.
Hugs, Terrie

YaYa's Funhouse said...
