The first daisy of the season bloomed today. Just one bloom, but soon there will be many more. I’ve lost track of what kind of daisy it is but it self sows in “a nice way” and I think it is one I started from seed. I’ll have to go through my old seed lists to see if I can figure it out.
“Self-sowing in a nice way” means you get some seedlings popping up here and there, but not everywhere. You have enough to fill in some blank spots and still give some away.
This daisy will produce a lot of blooms in the next few weeks, and then the rest of the summer it will bloom here and there if I deadhead it promptly.
And here are my first flats of annuals.
I bought these from a co-worker who belongs to an organization that sells them as a fund raiser. I could have bought more, but I had to place the order waaaayyyy back in March, and I didn’t know what I wanted at the time. I’m not sure why I bought all shade loving annuals because I don’t really have that much shade. And the shade I do have is being hogged up by the hostas!
And this is the first evening of Gardening Vacation 2007. I have many thoughts and ideas about what I want to do this coming week, as many ideas as there are snow-in-summer (Cerastium tomentosum) flowers now.
