This would look good on your header. So springy.

I believe Lisa at Greenbow may have something against your icy road-mountain header up there. She may be onto something, for Spring you can switch to flowers ...of course if you are anything like most men ( my husband is a prime example ), since a woman suggested it, you won't do it. Nice flowers, Gina

Well Gina just to prove I am not like most men, I will take Lisa's suggestion which I like, and put it on my list of things to do. Now how did I do that again?

Antique ART Garden said...

Ok, I'm impressed.

Lola said...

lol. That is very nice. I like.
I knew it. It makes for a good looking header.

There I am satisfied now after several iterations. The photo uploader wants to select parts of the picture for you. I'm a man. I want to select the parts.

That's what I want my backyard to look like. The slope is already there. I just need the seeds for next year.

I can barely stand to drive anywhere this time of year outside of town. I get distracted by all the blooms. I try to identify them. I keep telling myself to go back and check for seeds, but I never do. Maybe this will be the year.

Ooh,love that header. And I like Tom's comment about not being able to drive. Can't be any worse than cellphones, LOL!

WOW... a new header. I like it! (Although I loved the snow scene on the scenic byway.) A new season, a new header. Those are some very pretty weeds!

Les said...

I brake for roadside weeds as well.

We have the buttercups, I wish we had the forget-me-nots as well.

Tom I think seeds are the way to go and occasional editing. I now have two places I need to stop for seeds and like you the question is, will I remember.

Bev I think looking at roadside weeds is safer than cellphones. At least the road is always in part of your view plane.

Siria that Buttercup is gorgeous, but very aggressive.

Les this is the time of year when one longs for better road shoulders.

Sweetbay I bet the Forget-Me-Nots would start fine from seed and self sow from then on.

Lovely! I'm a Candler neighbor, new to this area, and forget-me-nots are new to me. I adore all of the wildflowers here!

They're not weeds to the beneficials!
