Gran's Johnny-Jump-Ups

Years ago when I started to garden, there were a lot of bare spots as I waited for plants to grow and colonize areas, and one of my favourite ways of keeping the weed population down was to plant theses little beauties from my sister's garden, which had been my aunt's and grandmothers garden.They have seeded all over the place and earlier in the week, taking my coffee outside, I stepped out the door, over the stone step and there they were. Just a few flowers nestled in a sheltered spot.

  1. I don't know this flower - but I love its name! Thanks for sharing about the black box and the scanner - I couldn't have imagined that for myself in years of pondering! What a great idea.

  2. Hi Fiona, thanks and do I hear scanner play time coming up? I love finding new ways to look and see.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
