Tuesday I finally got to starting my seeds. I’m always so excited when I do this. Almost every spring I try to grow flowers and/or veggies from seed; sometimes inside, sometimes outside and most years both. Although I don’t always have as much success inside as I’d like to I rarely miss a year of trying.
|Almost ready to get started.|
Waiting for the seeds to sprout reminds me of being a little person and how thrilling it was back in kindergarten when we all grew seeds as a science experiment. I can remember racing to school each morning full of excitement to see what my seed had done through the night. I still feel this way; only now I dash downstairs to see what’s grown through the night.
I wasn’t disappointed this morning – my first seed has sprouted. WOO HOO!!
|My first sprout - come on little guy!|
I have another tray to start this weekend (after I buy another few packets of seeds), but so far so good!
This tray contains:
- Pink pampas grass
- White pampas grass
- Purple cone flowers
- Holly hocks (that’s what has already sprouted!!) J
- Red peppers
- Yellow peppers
I still want to start:
- Morning glories
- Sweet peas
- White cone flowers
I love spring!!!
P.S. I also bought my first few pansies of the year. I’ll get them potted this weekend.
|I love the soft colours of these pansies.|
