I Just Couldn't Resist!

As the snow was falling outside, I ran into the store for a pair of jeans for the baby. I came out with jeans, but spent most of my time looking, and salivating at the seed packets. I just had to buy some. I came home with 8. I had been looking for the Candy Cane Red on White Zinnia and I found it!! They get huge and I love the color on them.. So different. Spring is around the corner, even if it is snowing today.
I bought the cosmos in honor of Jack (see below), he always had a grand Cosmo garden.

You made some lovely seed choices....that red/white zinnia sounds wonderful. Is the sunflower on the right in the first photo Strawberry Blonde? I am trying that one this year, too. :-)
I didn't know it snowed in Georgia... I am you got to enjoy it, even it is short lived. We have had several snows and melts this year!
