The flowers in June are so different, it seems like they are full of promise..all colors of the rainbow. The Lupines are the Stars of my June garden.
The flowers of July are like spent fireworks. The Lupine have formed their seed pods and start to re seed sometimes quite explosively. The Gaillardia begin to show off..
The flowers of August are warm and comforting..they signal the start of the end of summer.
Far Guy mows the pathways for me all summer, so I can walk amongst the flowers and take photographs. Sometimes I have lots of dog company. I started this planting a long time ago with just a few flowers..and fewer weeds.
They are what they are…beautiful and wild and no fuss no muss only a little mowing and lots of photo taking.
I don’t weed, I don’t water, Chance and his friends fertilize frequently. The Wildflowers have formed root systems deep and strong that will withstand drought and heat in the summer and the forty below zero in the winter. Deer and Turkeys wander in and out of the yard…they munch here and there..I am past getting upset about what the bums eat..I just share. After years of perfect gardens these Wildflower Gardens are now just perfect for me:)
