Just some wild red and golden poppies growing alongside my road. After years of battling wild mustard, these guys are a nice change.
So I spent $4 on a Bird & Butterfly Garden packet, threw in a little water, and voila! Two months later a full blown North American Wildflower garden.
Around here we've got a variety of mallow with a tiny white flower and a great big taproot that likes to take over just about everything. Fortunately, there are prettier, less invasive varieties native to other parts of North America. This one's a big mallow with a really showy pink blossom blooming in the butterfly garden.
