Karen came into the office with a shopping bag full of flower seeds. Said she got them from the president of her garden club. I ended up picking up forget-me-nots (always loved those), morning glories (to go with the sweet peas on the chain-link fence), rose-colored alyssum (have never seen that color before), evening primroses, vinca (love vinca - I have some periwinkles in the back yard already), and candytuft.

Even if most of the seeds don't germinate (some are very old), it'll still be fun to see what comes up. Some of the best treats I got from last year's gardening adventures were the products of two and three year old seeds that my cousin mailed me out of the blue.
