Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Seeds Germinating

As I posted earlier, I finally planted the wildflower seeds I'd collected from my yard last fall. I was concerned that they didn't have the required cold dormancy and moist stratification needed for some to germinate. I'm happy to show the results of my sowing.

Taking the easy way out, I planted several varieties together--my theory is that they will all be growing in the same conditions in the meadow. Most are perennials with only one annual (Erigeron sp.), if memory serves. The annual will bloom this year and can help mark the place of the perennials.

Here are the pictures I took as they began to germinate:
