No sewing this week either, there's just too much to do. But I though I would share my wildflower garden I planted last year with you.
We have a horseshoe drive and this is inside it. Our big mesquite tree grows in one corner. This bed is about 3 feet wide. I put in a few plants from the nursery last year but most everything you see is what has come up from the 1000's of seeds I scattered last spring. Those Queen Anne's Lace are 4 feet tall!
Very little came up last year though I did have blanket flower blooming it's heart out all winter.
And it is still blooming.
Above you see the arbor I redid 2 years ago with branches instead of the falling apart lattice it used to have.
This is the other side of the horseshoe, only a few blooming plants here, most of the ones I purchased did not make it, but a few did. I will sow wildflower seed here this year and next year it should be gorgeous too. Hopefully all will resow themselves from here on out.
There are more photos on my blog if you are interested.
