Today I spent an hour or two between rain showers to walk around our larger meadow sprinkling somewhere between 5,000-10,000 wildflower seeds here and there. I made sure to only sprinkle them on exposed dirt and some of the larger seeds I pushed into the earth. The thing that's a shame is that these seed are very old. From 2007 to be exact, so I doubt that many of them will sprout. I hope that a few will though, and what a colorful surprise that will be! Tomorrow I'll be sprinkling shade-loving flower seeds around the trees in our smaller meadow and planting a whole bunch of (currently soaking) morning glory seeds near some fencing. Wish us luck! It would be so nice to have some new wildflowers to appreciate! :D

It's been raining all day on and off, so I decided to take pictures of the beautiful jonquils which pop up right next to our display of daffodils. They smell sooooo nice!!! Such a strong, sweet smell, I just love them! I also took a picture of our orange-cupped daffodil which fell over last year and needed to be snipped and brought inside for pictures! :) I was so happy to see that now there are TWO of them! :D
