Heidi asked me about my choice of name for my new blog. Candytuft seeds were some of the first that I sowed and also the first flowers to bloom in a little corner of our new garden. This particular variety is called Fairy Mix and I think that there is something magical about the name.
Another reason was that candytuft also happen to be some of the first seeds that I ever planted as a child when my mother gave me a tiny spot in the garden in which to grow flowers. That was more years ago than I care to remember, but when I saw these seeds agin, I just knew that I had to have some.
Next year, I'm going to sow them much closer together so that they make more of an impact. I want a dusting of fairy magic to greet me every time that I enter my garden.
