I love the wildflower garden in the early morning when all of the flowers are getting a bit of sun, opening up and coming alive!

Weaving together the threads of life
I recognize the daisy and black-eyed susan in the second picture but what is the tall pink in the background of the bottom picture and deep purple/blue in the first picture? They’re all beautiful!
I have no idea what the blueish flowers are unfortunately. The leaves are almost similar to a daylilly. Someone had given me the white ground cover that’s in front of them and it was a surprise to find these must have been mixed in with them. The pink ones are a holleyhock (Alcea)
Me too! I also like seeing the wildflowers by the roadside at this time of year. The Queen Anne’s lace, the chicory, white daisies, pink-blooming clover, etc. etc.
Speaking of wildflowers, Tina. Can you please remind me how to dry and save the Queen Anne’s Lace? I think you know how, and I’d like to try it. Thank you.
We don’t dry them, we cut them and soak the stems in water with food coloring to color the tops and then spray them lightly with hair spray as it helps to keep them from “shedding” for a bit longer. So fun and pretty!
OK, thank you!
You are welcome!!
