Just Can't Wait!

Our red sunflowers Bet you just cain't wait to turn over those beds and start a' diggin! Now's the time!
To the left- a little bragging - our garden after we planted our herbs and wildflowers together. Our red sunflowers.
In the last couple of years my friend and I mated all kinds of floral aspirations.For instance, we both sowed yarrow.

I transplanted mine by root, and he sowed his.
The result was that yarrow bloomed profusely around the beginnings of a small fountain, and became not the occasional wildflower, but a statement of occasion.

My friends' wildflower seeds cost him eight dollars (Canadian)
