Wow! This is gorgeous! Do you know how great it is to see such a vivid burst of color (especially THAT color-my favorite) in the middle of all this snow?

Thank you all for your kind words!

I planted these seeds for the first time last year and they were so vibrant, they almost didn't seem real. I ordered two packs of seeds this year, instead of one!

I got them from one of my favorite ebay sellers. I always have good luck with her seeds. They are professionally packaged and have directions included.

That was MOST certainly worth the wait! The "Here I go .." shot is almost surreal.

Sheesh, another one for my list. You are very good at enabling, Barbara.
