Signs of Spring

A few photos to brighten up your February morning and give you some hope that spring is around the corner!

Yes, I planted the first two trays of seeds yesterday. Actually one and a half trays….the Echinacea tray is half-full. Or half-empty, but I’m an optimist, so it’s half full.  I planted perennial seeds yesterday: yellow Missouri primrose, mixed Columbine and Oriental Poppies, traditional Echinacea purpurea.  And parsley. Why parsley, you ask? Because butterfly larvae eat it.  I plan to add it as an accent plant in the butterfly garden this spring.

Nothing is growing yet….but in a few short months, those Echinacea may look like the one below, which I also grew from seed.
