Wildflower Cards!

Someone gave my daughter these cards to plant the other day! They'll turn into lovely wildflowers. Hopefully. My thumb isn't the greenest but it seemed like a cool thing. The seeds are embedded in the cards. You tear the cards, I had to cut, I couldn't tear it, and then you plant them in the ground, and water well. And maybe, just maybe, in a few weeks we'll have a mosaic of beautiful wild flowers.

  1. I saw Sunday and thought what? Holidays always do that to me.

    I had one of those cards. I think it came from the funeral home when my mom died. I was really hoping the seeds would germinate, but it wasn't meant to be. Hope you have better luck.

  17. I have received them as shower favors. I never had any luck with them. Then I got one the other day on a box of cereal. I haven't planted it yet.
    I hope you have good luck with yours.
    Raining here, all the bloomin' tourists will go home early!

  21. That would be really cool to have some wild flowers around the house!

    I was away in my parents village with limited internet access and could not do much with my blog and visiting other blogs. Hope you are having a nice long weekend.

  22. I bought cards like these when my mother passed away. They were inscribed and sent to friends and family in her memory. Flowers were her favorite thing.
