I am impressed with ordering flowers during winter. I make lists but don't order unless I can see the spaces in the garden appear.

Pretty picture.

Not planning on anything here except to buy some annuals locally and of course my veggie plants in the spring. Not going to do much or any mail order, maybe just some tomato plants.

I have lots and lots of leftover squash seeds from the past few years and will be starting many varieties of summer squash in the spring.

I order morning glory seeds straight from Japan sometimes and have had pretty good luck. This year I bought seeds of my favorite color. Smiling

Gorgeous! I love a true blue, which is not found in many flowers......I do like the blue salvia which does well in my herb garden, but delphs just die off for me, & lupines will NOT grow for me at all Sad

We have always had trouble with lupin. When we used to take our daughter to camp in Maine we would see tones of the wild ones. Very discouraging.

Thanks Pixie. It has taken 2 years to get this order. HYDES is supposed to be a good company to deal with but last spring the bulbs didnt come. Their problem, some mixup on the export certificate.

Celeste I love the morning glories you picked...are they from Ebay?
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Love the smell of Lilies in the yard but they are too strong for me in the house, I can't cut them and bring them in Shrug!

She has nice selection Celeste, wish some of the others weren't out of stock...cripes not that I need anymore Whistling
