Socks in Bloom!

Remember the socks we planted as an experiment? This is one experiment that has far exceeded any expectations I had for it! There are at least five different plant varieties in the planter. The grass is no surprise. Neither is the zinnia, as I had a bed of them last year, so I am sure some seeds found their way to the ground. There is also another plant with a white blossom, clover and one or two I can't identify.
We started in late March, and this is what the planter looked like in May:
The planter is surprisingly attractive and I am leaving it by my front door. This has been fun to watch and is something we may do again next spring.
