We Begin Again

Hello 2015, the grow season begins. The Grow Center has been scrubbed and bleached and today impatiens will be seeded to the germination tray. It's been a cold winter here in Minnesota, but we've been lucky with only a normal, manageable amount of snow. We'll see what March brings. Until we start to see some green, here is a picture from last summer.

 My first attempt at growing Billy Buttons. 

You can tell by the Heavenly Blues that this photo was taken late in the growing season. Here is a link for more information on the origins of the flower.

The effect was a little disappointing so last fall the planting bed was tilled up and tulips were planted in this space. The orange tulips are now waiting for their chance to welcome Spring to Minnesota.
