Bet you just cain't wait to turn over those beds and start a' diggin! Now's the time! To the left (on the main page) -a little bragging - our garden after we planted our herbs and wildflowers together.
(On the main page, an image to the left shows a medium height variety of Sunflower.) These have the actual scent used in Sunflowers perfume! Heavenly!
Their lovely heads are about seven inches wide, including the petals, which are a deep rusty burgundy colour.
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)
My huband made a somewhat ragged looking
stone fountain named "Progress", surrounded
by creamy, feathery Yarrow.
NB: March 2002: He still hasn't added the fountain pump , so it doesn't font, yet!)
