It's finally happened!
Year after year, I'd go home (Rhode Island) to visit, and to collect the dried flower heads of Queen Anne's Lace. I'd bring them home to Texas and try my hardest to get them to grow. Year after year, failure! This was really frustrating to me. I love a good garden challenge, and this was one of those plants I could not get to grow. Heck, up until this year I couldn't even get them to sprout. This time things were different for me. I scattered the seeds in a flower bed outside our bedroom window. I certainly didn't have any high expectations, but when all the seedlings popped their heads through the soil, I couldn't stop smiling!
To a lot of people, these are just weeds, wildflowers.
They are one of my favorite flowers, and I missed them.
They don't grow wild here, at least I've never seen them.
I would check daily to see how these guys were doing.
Last week was another milestone.
Little flower buds!!
A few more days of sunshine and showers and this is what my little flower bed is looking like.
Finally, I have many of these...
Life is good.
