A Gardener's Generosity

Last week I received a box full of seeds/seedpods from the mail. It was from my friend and my fellow lily enthusiast Mike of Arcata California. In the box were seven packets of lily seeds of his own crosses, a medium sized packet of mixed poppy seeds and eight bags of Russell hybrid lupine seedpods he labeled painstakingly with their individual colors.















Being detail oriented, Mike even emailed me the above photos of plants where he collected the seeds.

These seeds will be wintersown. The lupines will be good companions for my lilies and the poppies for my iris. The lily seeds will be sown in winter together with the other lily seeds I have.

(Thanks Mike for generously sharing these seeds with me.)

How fun for you, Lily. Thing come back a hundredfold. This is good karma for your generosity to me. Can't wait to see your spring GBBD. Your garden will surely rock.

ps. Allium still not germinating but I'm not giving up yet.

Wow!!! Lupines! They are so beautiful! My brother-in-law sent me a pack of Lupine seeds from Austria...and I can't wait to see them germinate! :) But I'm in the tropics so it's very unlikely for them to germinate. hehe.

Positive energies always generate its kind. You are a good soul, you attract good souls too, others with some negativities will come for grounding and balance, haha! Those are lots of seeds to manage, but they are in good hands. Congratulations for having friends like your seed donors, it's so sweet of him to send the photos too. I am excited to wait for them grow.
