Each of the Gaillardia blooms is the same and yet slightly different ... they fascinate me with their diversity.
I invited my young friend Lily to smell the Berlandiera lyrata yesterday and asked her if she thought it smelled like chocolate. "It DOES!"
Pardon the blur on this picture ... I wanted to show the mist on the petals.
Dewdrops on Sundrops are a lovely sight to behold. Sundrops is a Calylophus but I'll be darned if I'm sure which one. I thought it was drummondianus but now I think it could be berlandieri ssp. pinifolius because of the needle-like foliage.
Wildflower Wednesday is my friend Gail's celebration of those tough native beauties ... won't you visit her Tennessee cedar glade at Clay and Limestone and see what other gardeners are celebrating this month?
