The Ins and Outs of a Meadow

The larkspur is all but gone and the catchfly and bachelor's buttons are quickly fading.

Out with the old... in with the new.

What was a field of pink and white just two weeks ago is quickly being replaced by a field of yellow and yellow and yellow.  And a touch of chocolate!

Rudbeckia, coreopsis, cosmos area already blooming and the sunflowers are looking strong.

Having a meadow is so much fun.... we'll be adding another several pounds of seeds in six short weeks and expanding the entire area to more than double what we have now.

Part of the field will be in partial shade so we'll use seeds that do well in those lighting conditions.

Johnny-Jump-Ups will abound.

I can't wait!
