A couple of years ago, my friend Jennifer sent me a package of Sweet William in honor of her son, William. Those who know Jennifer, know the story of her sweet baby who now resides with Jesus.
I planted the seeds in a cute little pot right away but for some reason, the seedlings didn't thrive.....maybe because it gets so hot here.
I over planted the pot last year with some clover seeds. They promptly came up and lived right through the winter....see?
I decided to take a photo of the little gnome in the pot, surrounded by the soft clover.
Imagine my surprise to find a Sweet William poking its little head out of that pot!
Today, there is just one bloom........for Jennifer's own Sweet William...but I am happy to see that there are several others getting ready to bloom within the next week or so.
What a wonderful surprise!
