this is the first year i have planted an entire garden worth of flowers by seed. as spring started to creep in i was really worried that things would not come up because i had planted them too late or too early. i don't really have any hardcore gardening friends that live in my area so i couldn't consult with anyone about their garden and what was blooming. well, much to my surprise and happiness i now have a garden overflowing with nasturtiums, sweetpeas, larkspur, hollyhocks(these are not blooming yet but are getting big), and lots of other things returning from last year or newly planted this year, not from seed. here are some of the beauties blooming now--this will be a series of posts over the next few days.
