I bought these Peppermint Sticks Balsam seeds from @bakercreekseeds on a whim. I had no clue where I'd plant them, how they would grow, nada. I'm telling you, I knew absolutely nothing about them. But into a little patch of soil they went, where they got a stunted start (thanks, slugs!), then got moved to a new spot (remember the part where I knew nothing?), then finally, slowly started to grow taller. Two days ago I was marveling at the fact that they had tiny little buds on them, and I still wasn't convinced that they would actually bloom. But NOW, look at them! Those gorgeous, starry, speckled flowers! It's been a bit of a rough start to the year around here, much like the balsam got a rough start. Do you think a flower can be my #spiritanimal or would it be a #spiritflower or a #spiritplant - who knows?! Any which way, I claim it as mine!
