They all came from an old bucket




The Flowers.
  
They were long forgotten.  The Seeds.

They showed up in the Barn, during Spring cleaning.  They must be more than five years old.

Mr. G said that he had an "open spot" next to the peppers and cucumbers.



He threw out the seeds, raked them in and they grew.

And they grew.


So, so many of them.

  
 Thank you, Mr. G.
You're Awesome!

Gina

  1. A real riot, zinnias and cosmos and the one or other blue flower!
    Such unexpected delight, and what perfect spot. Love how the tableau you created to showcase them.

    A wonderful weekend to you and the holder of just the right place to plant a few long lost seeds,
    Merisi

  2. Dear Gina - Each photo invites you to step into it - the flowers, the table, the garden setting, and how lovely that old discarded seeds should produce such a wonderful riot of delicious colours.

  3. Dear Gina,
    A picture post card .. The whole setting of your table, the fruit and the flowers in the background, your fantastic roses so full in bloom.
    An easy way to grow such a beautiful array of different varieties of lovely flowrs.. Just throw them around, the outcome is spectacular.
    Happy weekend Gina.

  4. As an ignorant gardener, I wonder if any of those flowers will re-seed themselves for 2013? If not, I trust that you all will find more seeds to allow another colorful curtain of flowers to grow and grow!

  6. Lovely setting for a nice snack of brie and wine, perhaps? Mr. G and you, Gina? Very inviting. The backdrop is divine.

  7. My faux-pas - champagne, not wine! I saw it in the bucket and then promptly was mesmerized by that heavenly-looking cheese with the grapes...

  11. What a beautiful and peaceful place to sit and enjoy the great meal.

    I will come to your place in a minute and stay there till you kick me back §:-) in Sweden.
    Honestly, I love every inch of your table.

    Adorable,

  12. Dear Rosemary, I was very surprised to see those old seeds. Didn't think that they were still viable. Mr G found the right spot for them. I will have plenty of seeds for next year.

  13. Dear Val, I only have a few rose bushes that survive our cold winters. And I make the most of them by plucking the blossoms whenever a new one opens.

  14. Dear Frances, Some flowers volunteer easily, such as Asters. Often it is best to collect seeds late in the Fall, after the first frost, and keep them in a dry and cool place so that they don't mildew. Then broadcast them out in early Spring.

  15. Hello Cherry Kay, so nice to see you here. Thanks for your visit. I believe in serendipity, it has served me well at times.

  16. Dear Mary, Yes, champagne it is. One does not need much more, a bit of crusty bread and some well ripened cheese completes the menu.

  17. Hello Regina, All seeds need is some judicious watering early in the year. Why not give your "old" seeds a chance.

  18. Hello Tess, Thank you for your lovely compliments. I found the champagne flutes many years ago at T. J.ax.

  20. Hi, Gina - Your posting reminded me of that special vault somewhere in (is it Scandinavia?) where they archive all the seeds of the world. Isn't it amazing how seeds last and last?

  21. Dear Gina, This is what I call magic - those long-lost seeds that became such a beautiful fairy garden, and how you have created a welcoming and idyllic dining area in the midst of it. I've just realized what I must have known all along – you and Gene are magicians!

    Happy weekend, dear friend.

  22. Dear Mark, I know there is such a vault in Germany. I watched a doumentary where they continuously test older seeds for viability.
    A great idea, don't you think?

  23. Dear Georgianna, I even like thinning seeds and weeding in between. I imagine then how it will look when mature as I recognize each little seedling. They didn't disappoint this year.
