A mix of weed, annual and vegetable flowers are decorating my community plot. The blue ones are bachelor buttons (seeds from Botanical Interests) that I planted two years ago. They self-seeded this year and are big beautiful plants already.
The white flowers are bladder campion weeds. There are also marigolds, violas and johnny jump-up’s. The potatoes and fava beans are budded and will pop open any day now. Lemon thyme and a pink old rose are in full bloom.
Other flowers are yet to come. I planted nasturtium seeds this week. The sunflower seeds I planted a couple weeks ago are 2 inch sprouts now – on their way up to 15 feet or so. I also have zinnia, cosmos, Canterbury bells, anise hyssop, borage, prairie aster, purple cone flower, trilobia, lavender and day lily plants growing.
