I sowed them where the vegetable garden used to be. Got rid of two raised beds in the middle, leveled the ground (to the best of my ability) and prepped a spot for a small fire pit. And in the raised beds along the perimeter -- planted wildflowers.

I'm in USDA Zone 7b and sowed the seeds on April 19. I thought we're past any danger of the frost, but there were a couple of close calls when the overnight temperatures suddenly dropped. However, they never went down to below freezing, and there were no seedlings yet.

Well, today is the big day! Here they are, the very first ones:
They could probably use a bit more sunshine--they are in partial shade (that's why vegetables had to move: not enough sun)--but so far so good. I have a feeling they'll do well. Wildflowers are pretty tough. Cannot wait to see them all in bloom!
