Thought I'd finished up my seed orders when I got a Spring Season Preview from Renee's Garden. And, just as you thought I would, I'm going to see if I can add to my bursting at the seams seed box to include just a few more gotta-hav'em seeds. Last year I did a number of her tomatoes and was pleased with the results. I particularly like her combo packages that come with colour coded seed - for someone like myself with a small patch to give over to vegetables - it's nice to get 3 different varieties in just one package. She sells one of the largest selections of Sweet Peas - unfortunately with our spring that seems to last about 3 hours between Winter and Summer, they really don't do that well for me. Too bad, the colours are so lovely.
Got word from Stokes that my seeds are in the mail - should have them early next week - Hooray! Like to start my Browallia now, so they're a good size by the time May rolls around. Took lots of cuttings from my neglected Alternanthera 'Royal Tapestry' - don't think anything is going to take. I've never seen cuttings collapse so quickly. The fuchsia on the other hand (fingers crossed) looks fine so far.
It was -21C this a.m. When the wind was at our back, felt just fine. The sunshine was absolutely brilliant. Loved the little wisps that were dancing across the lake.
Wind was just fierce on the way up the street, but just had to pause and take a photo of these lovely fake flowers - who says we don't garden in Canada in the winter?
