Here are some pictures of art projects I've been doing with the preschool kids--it was time to take down the Valentine hearts and the chilly winter-time pictures.
Also picture are my new helleborus plants (one white, one pink) that I acquired at Seedy Saturday and have since planted in my garden.
I've grown to love helleborus as they flower as early as January and look nice all year long.
Also acquired at Seedy Saturday (an enormous local seed-swap): seeds for red poppies, nigella, zinnias, Siberian fritillary, scabiosa (looks much better than it sounds), clarkia, sunflower, calliopsis, and yellow and pink hollyhocks.
I hope I actually get them all in the ground this year. I tend to concentrate on already established perennial plants and I haven't been very talented at nurturing flowers from seed. But I try every year, and by Gum! Sometimes they come up!
