21 #SoAnchorage Holiday Delights: #16, Dreams of growing things


Guess what just showed up in the mail today with the gas bill and the Christmas cards? My first seed catalog. I’m a novice gardener, and our new yard is scary, but I have big dreams. So there I was, as the sun went down just after 3, sitting by the Christmas tree, thinking about these (carrot porn!):

And these,Β which I discovered last summer. My favorite flower of the garden. (Should I grow them from seed?)

What are you thinking about planting and where do you get your seeds?
