Thank you for your kind words. I served 22 years and I would gladly do it again if I was about 45 years younger.

My main garden consists mostly perennials but this past year I added a good number of Zinnias, Vinca and Marigolds for some late summer color and the deer don't seem to care for them. I don't have any photos of my main garden on my phone, but here are two that added this year.

Welcome! @PCCUSNRet and thank you for your service Thank You! Your beds are lovely.
Don't you just love collecting seeds and rooting plants, I certainly do!

@bxncbx. good variety of seeds, Elena.

Just collected some Iris x norrisii and then sowed them...they are like the orange blackberry lily but in pink. SALL20 sent them to me in 2016 and they flowered this year.

Love to trade seeds with you if you have too many Whistling

Betsy, my biggest problem is collecting the seeds, putting them in a bag and then not labeling it! I come back weeks later and wonder, what in the world is this? I did better this year in labeling some seeds but there are still some mystery seeds I may never figure out!

Rolling on the floor laughing I've done this more times than I care to admit to. Since I don't save many seeds, at least I have a halfway decent chance of figuring some of them out.

I label the bag or envelope as I go to collect a seed variety.
NExt winter I will clean them and put them in glassine envelopes.
