@ShelleySnyder I showed him this picture and he said "the flowers are so tall!" Lol. However, I'm pretty sure he's grown just as much this summer! 😉

The #smellsofchildhood 💕 Can you tag what your favorite flower was as a child? I'd love to see! #alyssum grew on a hillside of my grandmother's house in Hawaii. It always brings me fond memories when I smell it. Now, passing on down to my son... ☺️

@tinaaune I was big into rock gardens as a kid... But more because I love rocks. Lol. That made me remember that I loved popping the seed pods of impatiens back in Hawaii. They explode, which I thought was pretty cool as a kid. They were prolific even in rock gardens!

@susanhumphrey333 I had no idea what I was missing out regarding sweet peas until @daisy-jane sent me some seeds this year. Incredible smell! No year will be without from now on!

Simply sprinkle seeds in the soil bed and lightly press them into the soil. Keep the soil evenly moist and they will germinate within one week. Plant alyssum tightly together in groups spaced only 6 inches apart to create a quicker flowering carpet effect. Keep alyssum well-watered during hot, dry weather.

comment
joy4todd

@jennlamaye: You and I are thinking alike as I am starting to make notations on my plants and hopefully to make notes 📝 on each and everyone one. I have been realizing that when someone clicks on your plant that there should be some good "FYI" along with cataloging it. It's just my perspective. Have fun. 🤗❤️🦋

@Racheltheredhead I planted seedlings last year, and they self seeded this year. I noticed sometimes the parent plants come back too, which was surprising! I can collect seeds for you to if you would like to try again. 😊

Carpet of snow is an appropriate name for this. Your grandmother's yard must have been stunning! I love white flowers at dusk.

@piratedeathray it was a stunning hillside in Hawaii, full of alyssum and lantana. Definitely where my love of flowers started! :)

I lived in Pearl City for a few years! There was a plumeria in my front yard as big as an oak tree and a mango in my back yard, but it was so tall, I never saw any fruit until it fell, rotten, for me to run over with the lawn mower. :p Beautiful place. How fortunate for you to visit your grandmother there and form such wonderful memories.
