I used to plant pansies as a kid. Now I don't plant anything. This looks like a lot to me.

Snapdragons! I love snapdragons. My grandfather used to plant them for me with an empty space in the center for me to hide.

I love snap dragons and in the south pansies can last all year long if given just a little protection during heavy snow and ice. I'm not sure what we'll plant this year other than tomatoes, guess I'd better get thinking about it. ~ Calico Contemplations

I love petunias in all their colorful variations and have some seeds for this year. I didn't have much luck with them last year, but in 2008, I had two huge pots of them that sat in a stand at one side of our front door. They were just gorgeous.

I love geraniums too, but I've never grown them from seed.

You're going to have a lot of beautiful flowers this year. I've never had any luck with flowers so I leave that to my husband.

I hope you take some pics of these to share with us. This will be my first summer in an apartment. I will have window boxes for sure.
Happy T13!

I can't seem to get the flowers to survive our heat down here. But we did plant tomatoes, zucchini (yellow and green), bell peppers and strawberries this week!!

Man, and here I am, wondering if we'll actually plant herbs. You've got the flowers all mapped out.
