wildflower intrigue


my new favourite garden colour
"orange"





OK , i admit it, i am beguiled by this thing called
my wildflower garden.
it started out with packets of seeds that said something like hummingbird attracting wildflowers or butterfly wildflowers. both of these i would love to attract for their beauty and their pollination. for weeks i thought
"what have i done?" i wasn't sure if it was a weed garden or a wildflower garden gone wild with weeds. but alas, it seems to be paying off. the buds are everywhere and what they will produce will definitely be a surprise(which has me looking many
times everyday). i love the
unexpected excitement of what is
coming and what colour it will be.
this has been pure fun!



thru the wildflowers and thru the hammock , our veggie garden and dave looking over our produce.
beauty in pink , yellow and buds!
