Purchase plants in spring or start them from seeds sown directly into the garden in the spring or fall. Seeds can also be sown in pots in early spring or fall and set outdoors in a protected location. The exception is Gloriosa seeds.

I wish I was out watering my flowers. Looking at the 5 inches of snow on the ground today, takes me back to the warm summer day that I took this photo.

These are blooming along my property line. This was an early morning picture with the sun somewhat low for lighting. I hope you can see the bee on the right central part of the picture.
