I still have some

Blackberry Lily seeds

Yucca (Adam's Needle) seeds

Rose of Sharon seeds

I'll be glad to send to anyone that wants some. Especially if you have something to trade :)

Yeah, but the ground isn't frozen, so you can still slip some seeds in there :)

I'm sure you're right, Sherry.  The last time I looked we still had violas blooming.  One year they lasted until Christmas which was freaky.

For some reason, I've just never been comfortable with trusting things to grow if I sow them outside, although some certainly do it fine on their own.  The lambs' ears we dug up reappeared a couple of years later and I pull most of my forget-me-nots every year.  I hope I didn't overdo it this year because I am going to try them at the cemetery.  They move around in the same bed here, but don't invade anything else.

Am I just paranoid about that Burt's Bees and the "wildflowers"?  I looked and they don't say a thing about what they are.  I have enough invasives and DH has been known to drag them home from his mother's too.  I don't think lack of plants the bees like is the problem anyway. 

Thanks, anyway, Sherry, but I don't even think I had anything to save seed from.  I do have to make notes so I remember things to do, like take those forget-me-nots to the cemetery.  (Nah, they'll disappear this year!)
