A Day In The Life

Whoopsie Daisies

May means thousands of these jolly Oxeye Daisies blooming in my little patch of woods. My wildflower book says they are actually chrysanthemums.


Sunshine bright Tickseed (coreopsis) is interspersed with the daisies.   All the blooms arrive just in time for a Mother’s Day bouquet!

What a beautiful spot! I really miss the change of seasons, I’m just and dry or cold and dry.

beautiful!! Do you have Poppies?

I plant Poppies every year and they never come up. This year I realize I thought they were weeds and I’ve been pulling them up!

Wow!! So pretty!!

I wish I was there now. I have lots of family your direction. (Didn’t I once say here that I could never date anyone from Arkansas ’cause I’m prob’ly related to the whole state?) Anyhoo, I don’t get there until Labor Day. *SIGH*

I’m going to have to take pictures of my poppies for Vicki when they bloom – there are big buds now. It’s nice to see your pictures because you are far enough ahead of us that I can see what’s around the corner! Your Forsythia is a perfect example! What a beautiful drive you must have!

I didn’t know coreopsis was called tickweed. We’ve pleanted it several times. I think our c-c-cold winters get them or else some bug eats the roots. After a couple of years they disappear and we have to plant again.

I’ve seen some wild chryth. in the northwest, too. Some of them are purple!

I’m going to have to do something like this at the property – after I dig up all my iris and daffodils and move them. Of course, I’ll bet azaleas don’t move well – so I’ll have to leave those put.

Remind me to hire you as a landscaping consultant!
