New Header Photo

I bought a flat of yellow violas. Miss Billie said to always buy yellow violas for the winter garden. I could have used 4 flats, but they were kind of shopworn so I just took one.

They had formed seedpods, which I deadheaded. When I finally got them planted despite the 'help' of the cat, I clipped off every blossom to give them a chance to form roots. My new header pic is a scan of the blooms.

I can hardly wait to see violas blooming in the Chicken Rose bed.


  1. You did a bang up job on the new header photo. It sure looks great. Happy 2009 to you and may it be your best ever.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
