Wild Flowers

 The small packet of wild flower seeds I purchased this spring have started to bloom. I planted them in the middle of the yard where an old stump had been and had to protect them from weed spray & lawn mowers.
   It's fascinating to peer inside of this clump of flowers & spot Bachelor Buttons, Poppies', Babies Breath and many more blooms.
What interesting things are growing in your yard?


  1. Looks like a little patch of beauty! I don't have a green thumb whatsoever...but my dad gave me a coconut a while back which is actually growing pretty well seeming that I have done nothing to it but bury it. I had a few pots of some flowers I threw outside because they were not doing so well which were starting to come back. My hubby ended up throwing them out without asking, grrrrr!

  2. I'm not growing anything because I have no yard but I love wandering around Portland admiring others handy work, especially the roses. It is the city of roses afterall!
