These are a couple mums from my Valentines Day bouquet. (Thanks hubby :) They remind me of a beautiful mum my parents grow (Chrysanthemum Sheffield Pink) that I'd like to have in my garden. Since I found a bunch of milk bottles in my neighbor's recycling bin today, I think I'll mail order these seeds (and some other perennial flowers) and set up a few more winter sowing bottles.
- Oops, looks like Sheffield Pink doesn't breed true from seed. I'll have to see if my parents can divide theirs. For the bottles, I think I'll sow dill, thyme and rudbeckia.
