Pickin’ Wild Flowers

29Apr13

I have a bunch of wildflowers I need to plant, so today we’re taking some compost out to the grove of trees in front of the house. Eventually, I’d like to fill in the whole area with wildflowers. I always thought it’d be neat to have wildflowers growing inside the grove of trees. For now, I have enough for a small patch. The wildflowers include Echinacea, Black-Eyed Susans, Alysium, Batchelor Buttons, Arroyo Lupine, Coreopsis, Indian Blanket, Mission Red Monkeyflower, Painted Daisy, Purple Cornflower, Scalet Bugler, Wallflower, and White Yarrow. I love these kinds of flowers because they attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

There are already some really pretty wildflowers out there. I picked some yellow and white ones. We’ll see if anything comes up in the next 4 weeks. It’ll be nice to get some color in there.
