Blue sky out there.

 I eventually got through on the phone and made various appointments.

I picked a few hellebores. My old pink one has seeded a spotty one. Also one of each of the new ones.

Good morning everyone.  I had a lazy day yesterday, but today I need to sow some seeds. The question is where do I put them?

. Polite answers only please.
