Wild flowers abound this time of the year - here are two of my favorites.
Fireweed is everywhere - I want some growing in my yard - I think it grows thick enough and fast enough that there would be some left to bloom after the deer graze through - at least that is my hope.
Such a pretty flower - it is the first flowers to bloom after a wild fire - or after logging. The seeds are light and fluffy and float on the wind.
Another is wild Sweet Peas - they grow in masses alongside country roads - the biggest wave of them we ever saw was almost a mile long - they are amazing.
A nice backdrop for waves of Sweet Peas.
Pinks and purples. I planted some seeds in pots on our deck this year - when they go to seed I will save the seeds and hopefully get some that will survive the deer who visit our yard regularly.
What wildflowers bloom in your area? When we lived in Burney California there were Bachelor's Button growing in wild masses. Our kids would pick pretty bouquets of them on their way home for lunch.
