Baby Blue Eyes

The Baby Blue Eyes (Nemophila menziesii) started blooming a bit later this year because of the cold spring.

Bees and butterflies love the flowers and during a sunny day there is a constant buzzing going on.

One of the most reliable annuals I grow and starts blooming early, usually around the midsummer up here in the north.

Each year it is fun try something new. You never know how the new comers will do and how they will turn out to be.

This year I sowed some Baby Blue Eyes (Nemophila Menziesii) seeds. I just saw them on a web site and decided to give them a try. Originally my idea was to grow them in a terrarium but ended up planting them outside.

I got lucky. My babies started to bloom in the beginning of July. The summer has been cool but they did not seem to mind.

The flowers themselves are small but the color is so beautiful and blooms many.

I guess I need to buy these seeds for the next summer as well.

PS. Bought the seeds from http://www.seedaholic.com. Just love the name of the site.
