My Darling Little Spring Blooms…

Okay I have to show off these containers today.  They just look that darn pretty.  There are two of them at my garage doors and I try to keep something pretty in them all year long.  I can honestly say they looked good all winter, not that we had that much of a winter this year.  But the pansies bloomed almost non-stop.  Recently I added the gold tipped euonymus for an evergreen, “Carmel” Huchera, Purple Emperor Sedum, Red Hen and Chicks and from last fall an iris that I have no idea what color it is!  They are full, but as things get too big I take them out and place them in the garden.  But what I wanted to show you was my things from SEED!  
Just look at this Virginia Stock!  I absolutely love it! 
It is such a great filler and it came back the 2nd year from seed for me.  I love that!
Here is my other little darling blooming in the same pot.  Five Spot… isn’t it cute!
It is a tiny little thing, but I love the little purple spots, don’t you?
But it is the stock that I am crazy for… can you say more please?  Yes, indeed!!

I could photograph it all day...

Again, this is Virginia Stock from seed planted last fall. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
