In a Country Garden......


My gardens bring me happiness.....
I wanted to share some seeds from my garden with friends, so a couple of weeks ago, I made up these little seed packets in which to put them, using a photo of my secret garden:


Thought I was being so creative, then saw a similar idea in the latest Country Gardens magazine today...

I really did think of it before I saw the magazine!

(I actually must give credit to fellow blogger Linda, who had shared some seeds with me in the past, in specially-made packets. I'm sure that stuck in my mind and provided inspiration for "my" seed packets! Thank you, Linda :)

It just goes to show great minds think alike. I love your seed packs. I'd be begging for some seeds if they would grow here. I think Hollyhocks are so 'cottage charming'.

Becca, I have never planted seeds before. I always have starter plants. We have hard clay here and the ground is so hard unless it's wet. The seed packets are a cute idea and you are allowed to claim the idea. smile.

I was checking out your 127 sale finds. I love the romantic things you love. The candy box is awesome. Lucky you girl. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs, Jeanne

Becca,

Thank you so much for your lovely hollyhock seeds. I feel honored to have received some. Can't wait to plant them, but I don't want to open the pretty package.

Your Foxglove seeds are on the way baby cakes.
