    Just keep an eye out for vermin (deer, rabbits, groundhogs, and so forth). Deer, in particular, are a major issue for many people in my region.

    Look forward to seeing yours in bloom!

    I live in the middle of a city and have never seen any wildlife around here. Except for a fieldmouse or two per year that the cats bring into our bedrooms for us to enjoy :-).

    Nice label.

    just a suggestion, maybe you could have a picture of the bloom beside the label. I do this now, so as to know what kind of bloom are my babies when they are not in bloom. Or else, its really boggling guessing which is which.

    or maybe you love surprises.

    Well I do like surprises :-D, but in this case the pictures are on the backside of the labels :-). Perhaps best to be able to choose your surprises anyway ;-).
