Well, it isn't last year's army of 30 milk-jugs, but it's better than nothing. My winter-sown seeds, from left to right:
New England aster (or some other purple aster, collected from a playground thicket)
marsh violets (collected from a sunny, moist location)
violets (from the ones in Gabe's Garden)
To my dismay, rosa rugosa isn't native, so I'm not sure what I'll do with them if they grow. But I was on the fence about those thorns anyway.
The staghorn sumac isn't something I intend to plant in the yard. I'm just starting it for fun. Maybe I'll grow one in a pot. Bonsai, perhaps?
