Yesterday I gave a talk on Winter Sowing to the Master Gardeners. Winter Sowing is one of my favorite things to do. One of the members brought this beautiful bouquet for the refreshment table and I got to take it home. Isn't it full of sunshine? The yellow flowers are cassia, which I think I should include in my yard when I do some more planting.
If you are interested in Winter Sowing, there is quite a bit of information online. Here are the web sites that I shared with them.
