Here’s a picture of the Vincas I was talking about in my previous post. Like I said, they were by far the most hardy plant I had all summer. They are still in their containers right now blooming away, even after being scorched in a hot car, and frozen outside in the Minnesota cold.
Oh, Alyssum. How do I love thee? These tiny little flowers never fail to give me a great showing every summer. I started them from seed, and although they looked very fragile they toughened up a lot once they were put outside. I must say, I was really impressed with myself as they were one of the few seedlings that I didn’t kill.
