It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

With all the rain we have been having I'm starting to see a few sweet pea sprouts. A little warm sunshine and they may even bloom Whistling Thumb of 2011-04-19/luvsgrtdanes/d2159e

Well done gals on the seedlings!

An observation-
I have a narrow bed that runs along between driveway and house. Its the south side of the house so it warms up more- this I knew. A Sunflower I grew there last year dropped a lot of seeds, despite many visits from goldfinches Thumbs up . Sunflower seedlings started up weeks ago and have been happy thru all the ups and downs. I am trying to get one good one in the spot just below the eye hook that DH put up to tie last years stalk to. Twice I have dug a good seedling from another spot and planted it there. Meanwhile I also started a couple big striped seeds from birdseed to try and get a seedling for one with one big head. Bottom line, the ones that sprouted themselves and have not been moved are still looking much better than the moved ones or the started ones. Not sure if this reflects my lack of attention, or indicates how much stress they get from moving and then these swings and strong spring sun.
It IS making me feel more in favor of planting earlier than you might think, in place, and letting the seeds give it a try. After all seeds (most) are so cheap.

Sal, I plant them in a bed that has such good drainage and gets so much sun that hardly anything will establish there. Whether I plant the seeds early or late, they prosper. They do reseed everywhere.

Sally I've noticed the seeds that plant themselves or the ones I can get to early always do better that the transplants . I always want to put some in in the fall and then never get to it. Hoping to get some in today.

Hmm, the critters plant plenty of them in the fall. I've never thought of doing that. But then I never have any problem getting them going. They all grow big and tall and the dryness and sun over there are relentless. The only other thing that prospers there are Hollyhocks and Daylilies. Even the coneflowers can't take the sun & dryness there.

pshaw when you're up there, you are taller than the ears. Even I see that when I'm politely sliding off Whistling Actually the best horse I ever met let me ride her. Of coursely I eventually fell off cuz I was gawking about and she went left when I went right but after I fell off quite ungracefully (OOFPH) she actually came over and nuzzled me. I like to think she was being kind; although maybe in retrospect she was just checkin to be sure I was really, truly dead Rolling on the floor laughing
