Have you heard the saying, “April showers bring May flowers?” Sometimes it’s true and sometimes it’s not.

We have already talked about saving vegetable seeds, but what about flower seeds? When you see crocuses, tulips, hyacinths or daffodils start to appear, don’t you just want to see more flowers? Spring is here, with summer not far behind, so did you save any marigold, zinnia or hollyhock seeds from last year?

If so, why not ask friends, family or neighbors if they saved any flower seeds of a different variety. If they have, you could trade some of your seeds for some of the ones they have. Of course, there are seed catalogs and magazines that offer varieties for sale or swap. Seed swaps are fun to do.

I also hear that the new fangled internet thing has places to connect to for seeds or flowers. You could make a friend and get some different varieties of seeds.

I save my seeds from year to year to plant or give away. I love to see flowers grow and they really are inexpensive to obtain. So why not start this month on some pretty flowers for your yard, your flower garden, flower pots, or hanging baskets? The results are always worth the wait, time involved, and the small expense.

My thought for the month is: Share the flowers and seeds that you do grow. It will make you feel good.
