* Having a butterfly land on my arm and crawl across my back
One of its wings was bent but it managed to fly away after I moved it to this columbine.
*Organizing a plant swap and spending the afternoon with wonderful gardeners
This is a great way to add to the garden as well as pass along all your seedlings.
*Scoring a new shade plant labeled "Native Wildflower"
It's striped wintergreen, a native that grows in dry shade.
*A pot full of wintersown annual linaria 'Fairy Bouquet'
These were the first seeds among my wintersown plants to sprout.
