From The Yard

Mexican Evening Primrose

Blanket Flower

Pink gardening tools. I found these in the dollar bins at Target.

Very nice!! I've gotten the blanket flowers, gaillardia, for the past two years in seed form, but can't get them to grow. Hope this year will be different. Yours looks like they're doing great!

Thanks, Mark. I bought my blanket flower in a 1 gallon pot at Home Depot. I don't have the patience for seeds.

The best experience I've had with seed is the time I grew a couple of those mammoth sunflowers. Those things grew to over 6 feet tall before toppling over. I wish I had a picture, but we didn't own a working camera back then.
