This time last year I was a in the throes of moving house and home from Toronto to Montréal and had no time for my usual late winter activity of planting seed. This year I'm making an attempt to get back into the habit and have uncovered some seed of some of the many annuals that were such a delight on my trip to South Africa in 2013. They include Nemesia cheiranthus, Nemesia barbata, Felicia australis, and Dorotheanthus bellidiformis.
