As promised: Eye candy

Here are some of the pictures I took of the flowers I was cleaning the other day.

Some of the full of colour baskets

And some more colours

These are all on empty pots on the floor, and watered with a spaghetti system
Some more hanging up in a different greenhouse

Close up of some of the flowers.  Don't you just love the 'pearl' in the middle?

Another colour
These little starts looked like rosebuds opening to me
Doesn't this look like a rosebud?!

The plant after I was done cleaning it
The plant 2 or 3 days after cleaning
The plant about a week after cleaning. All the flowers and buds are back!

This job took me 2 weeks to complete!  By the time I reached the last row, there were so many more flowers and buds on there, that it took me longer to clean a plant every day!  But now we're just going to let them grow, and will sell them in a couple of weeks.  Here's to hoping to good weather coming up in May!

Happy sewing!  (I've been doing alterations this week, and have no pictures to show for that), and happy reading!
