Hello everyone, I have finally got a digital camera and have gone through the process of getting the pics. on my PC. I know nothing about photography, and am a new WS'er so wanted you to see what I've been doing:
These petunias were WS this winter using seeds I collected from a bought flat last summer:

Northerner,
I really enjoyed looking at your flowers.
They are just beautiful. Congrats on your WS success!
I will be WS for the first time this coming season and I can hardly wait. I've been stock-piling supplies, info., seeds, etc. Such fun to do all the planning.
I had a duh! moment when you said you collected seed from the plants you bought last year. I never thought of doing that before! Going to have to give it a try this year.

Welcome!
Stephanie

Yes, very pretty. They look happy. The colors are gorgeous. The poppy is a beaut. WS is really fun, isn't it?
Steph, keep on reading and checking the forum. You'll have a great time this winter. Watch out for seed offers too, so you don't have to buy.

All so pretty! That poppy especially .... you've done wonderfully, newbie or not!

Stephanie, you're gonna start eying every plant you see and figuring out how you can get the seeds!

You've done a good job with the photos. Very pretty blooms! I had a poppy once that resembled that last one and it was called Tangerine I believe..not sure if I am forgetting part of the name. I think I got a plug of it from Green Mountain Transplants and maybe they still offer it on their site? No photos there though.

Thanks for posting. :-)

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. It seems all the hard work is paying off. I am enjoying winter sowing and I feel so fortunate that I 'fell' on Trudi's article while surfing the net. It has changed my life. I sowed more than 70 containers this winter - mostly perennials - so I should have some great pics. next summer.Have a wonderful summer.

Very pretty...I love the poppy. Maybe it's a double form of Iceland Poppies. I can imagine sitting at your table having a glass of wine with the johhny jump up centerpiece ;-)

Hi Trudi:
You can imagine having the glass of wine and that's about all I can do , too. We're having horrible weather, very cool and very wet recently - the thunder storms have virtually destroyed my little centre piece!! I'll keep hoping!
