BUSY AS A BEE
I have been busy as bee, Bumble bee that is, and this evening saw this little guy keeping busy enjoying the great weather we are having. The flower he is on is a Zinnia I started from seed called "Purple Prince". It's more of dark pink than purple, of course the seed packets never really get the correct colour on the picture. It's amazing what a little photo enhancement will do to sell a few extra seeds. But still, love starting plants from seed. It's a lot of fun and very economical. When I was thirteen I use to start Cinerarias from seed and bring them up to a finished 6" pot and sell them to local florist shops in the area I grew up in. I guess I've had the garden bug in my blood for a long time. There is something so special about seeing something start from seed and watching it grow.
To this day I still have the same excitement, and I know it's something I won't out grow :)
