Plant and seed shopping

I went to Eenrum again today, to my nursery "De Kleine Plantage". Mainly because they sell my cards and lot of them were sold out. I never leave empty handed when I go there. They have so much pretty plants and things. But no big buys today, even though it was their Roses and Clematis weekend. I want a peach coloured rose in my front garden but didn't find one that was good enough. Most of the ones that had nice flowers grew on shrubs that were too low for the place where I want it. Other roses with great flowers (gorgeous even) were ramblers. Also not what I need right now. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere or just alter my plans, go for something red instead or something.
Anyway.... I did buy some plants and some seeds. Here's what I bought:

- Agastache "Black Adder":

- Foeniculum vulgare "Giant Bronze" (had it for years and love it):

Wow--lots of pretty things you got there. I'm so ready to get out into the garden and plant some new things. We dug up some old plants that were getting sort of past their prime, and I'm ready to plant some new perennials with annuals mixed in. You'll inspire me, Sigrid.

It is so easy to get crazy buying seeds. I am happily plating several trays of flowers when I am supposed to be focusing on vegetables. can't help myself.
