Last year I had a Black Eyed Susan flower that looked like a Muppet because several of the stems and flowers grew together. This year it's the Foxglove. I planted these Foxglove Seeds in Dec. 08.
Just look at that stem and flower head....
I also planted Hollyhock seeds in Dec. 08 and have some buds this year...yippee..my Dahlias have buds on them too. It looks like May will be spectacular in the garden..(hoping the rains don't beat everything down)
Today I am Thankful I did not give up on seeds sown in 2008..
