Garden

Ok so I started my flower/parsnip garden. Usually all I plant are parsnips (yum!). This year I wanted sunflowers too :D I didn't originally like sunflowers, but my Uncle Clarence and I used to plant them when I was little (before he died). Now I like them because they remind me of him. Also the character Sara(h) from Gallery Fake burned her arm trying to save a sunflower painting from a fire ^^;

People gave me seeds/plants, and now it is pretty full. I want a scarecrow though!!!

Not much has sprouted yet, and the only flower-flowers visible are the ones I planted from those pots you can get at nurseries.

So far I have:
Giant Grey Stripe Sunflowers,
The Relay for Life Surprise Mix,
Music Box Mix Petite Sunflowers,
Gypsophila Baby's Breath,
Tempo-Pink Frost Impatiens,
New Look Celosia,
Zinnia,
Snapdragon,
Poppies,
Sparkler White Tip Radishes,
Forget-Me-Nots,
Parsnips

The names in italics are the 'fancy' names of them, and the ones in bold are the common names. I tried to list them in the order planted.

And now pictures XD (They are sorta brighter than usual, because it was overcast and I upped the exposure..)!

Anyway it is raining in buckets yet again ;-; so hopefully my seed won't rot int he ground :( I can't wait for the 'Music Bow Mix' to grow, the photo on the packet is pretty. I planted the parsnips like exactly to directions. I soaked them overnight to shorten growing time, put down fertilizer the day before planting (plus lots of water), I mixed a layer of potting.top soil in with the regular soil to hold moisture more, and then I planted them in little evenly spaced rows at the required depth, along with Radishes (even though I don't really like to eat radishes). They are supposed to protect the parsnip seedlings (it said so on the packet!)...

And yes I have a lot of stakes marking what is planted where XD

Now I'm going to go find out the directions for making a scarecrow, via the RuneScape way X3
