Today I went out in the brisk sunny air to do some planting. First came the garlic that takes up an entire bed in my garden. Then it was on to plant Pacific NW native wildflower seeds that I ordered from Steele Acres. I marvel that some seeds need the harshness of winter to flower in the spring. Perhaps we do too.

While planting I noticed a some delightful tiny groves of mushrooms and a miniscule very late violet in the very right side of the last picture. You never know what you might find out in the garden…

One thought on “Planting Seeds in Winter”
Very astute of you to notice, “that some seeds need the harshness of winter to flower in the spring. Perhaps we do too.” I like your sketch, too. 🙂
