Flowers started

Started seeds in trays today for the following flowering plants:

Sunflower Mammoth (Helianthus annuus)
Bolander's Phacelia (Phacelia bolanderi)
Dune Astor (Lessingia filaginifolia)
Western Columbine (Aquilegia formosa)
Catnip (Nepeta Cataria)
Creeping Thyme (Thymus serpyllum)
Cobweb Thistle (Cirsium occidentale)

We shall have to see how the California natives do here this summer.  Should be okay since I am starting them indoors.  They probably won't come back next year even though they are perennials because the winters are a bit cold here.
