So in preperation for next spring I have already started planting some seeds. This I find almost as interesting as watching the grass grow and thicken as it becomes established! I cannot wait until my garden looks full of colour!
Livingstone Daisies
Which will turn into...

Black Cornflower (centaurea)

Which will grow into....

Lupinus polyphyllus
Which will grow into...

I don't know if my flowers will be the same colours as these ones here.

And finally these....
These flowers were already here when we moved in and they were gorgeous. I don't know the name of them though... The old plant is still in place and the seeds have fallen of their own accord so will be very randomly placed but I really like that. Makes it much more authentic! Nature is fantastic.

I guess in a way my love of gardening and growing seeds very much reflects my job. Just this morning i brought a gorgeous little girl into the world, delivered into the arms of an incredible mother; her body taking over and allowing her to birth with not even a paracetamol for pain relief. Mother nature looked after her.
