vintage gardening

When we were visiting my parents a few weeks ago my mum offered us a rummage through some of her seeds to see if there was anything we fancied planting.

Little did we know that her seed collection dated back to the 60s!

Just look at these packets (from 1968/69). What they lack in freshness they definitely make up for in design. I might frame them.

My parents really need to have a sort out though. 40 year old seeds indeed.

Oh, and here are some pictures of Jerry, who had emerged from hibernation a few days before we arrived.

He looks a little grumpy. Over tired maybe?
