These gorgeous seed packets came to my attention via, and is the cool product of the wonderful guys at Hudson Valley Seed Library.  Since it's seed season, and this  art is prettier than anything I've seen since Victorian plant packets, I thought I'd hijack them for my reader(s).  Feast your eyes, then order some and plant 'em!

The gorgeous photo below of forced muscari in a teacup is not mine, but I must share with you.  Sans kind permission of the wildly informative and touching blog "Spitalfields Life."  These grape hyacinths are from the Columbia Road market, London.
