Surprises from seed.

Everyone knows I like a bargain. When the garden centers begin to make the seasonal markdowns I will visit often and head straight for the discount shelves.

I especially love the bulk wildflower seeds. I am usually pleasantly surprised years down the road as some of the perennial plants mature and begin to bloom.

Along the street I have had oxeye daisies and a few wild day lilies. Last year I sprinkled a pack of rudbeckia and as they have bloomed I have been pleasantly surprised. A few even bloomed during our mild winter.


I seeded a large path from the front walk through through to the lawn. They should be amazing as this patch is about 5 feet wide and 20 feet long.


I also seeded lance leaved coreopsis , too. They are just coming into their prime blooming season!


The oxeye daises are finishing up their season so once the seed heads dry I will hit them with a rake to shake out the seeds and cut back the dead bloom stalks.


And the cycle of the seasons continue…
