Seedlings


Coneflower seeds.
One of the awesome things about being a gardener is that I get to witness how 
the little seeds from the above  became these tall plants full of pink flowers below.

Coneflower at my garden,  from 2010.



I planted these seeds back in September, it was time to put them in their own little pot. 
Then I will plant them at the garden where they will go to sleep in the winter to 
wake up  sometime in the spring,  when weather gets warm.


Oh, my life in the city! Most of the things I do, I do them inside my cage. 
We around here call it fence, got to have it, it also comes in handy for the picture's backdrop.



Cutie is always around helping me, where would I be without him!



 Have you ever wondered how long are the roots of a 2" seedling?



Being patriotic, 2010

Poor guy, he works so hard that he passed out in the middle of the job!
