A while back, I did highlight a few wildflowers in my timely "Good Weeds vs. Bad Weeds" blog.
But this season we've been blessed with some really spectacular wildflowers - nourished by, not one, but two days of SNOW in our desert town!
Thanks to Jared from Spadefoot Nursery for identifying this native Lacy Sleepy Daisy that is growing along our sidewalk.
The native globe mallow is really showing off it's (orange) colors in our jujube basin!
But I'd say the true star of our neighborhood has got to be the Mexican poppy... So I thought I'd do a quick blog about it while it's still around to enjoy!
Please, don't spray Roundup on it...
like the neighbor who sprayed Roundup right next door
to the cute toddler who gathers flowers in the neighborhood. 😒
|Does this look better than a flower?|
Then the birds eat the seeds and spread them through the neighborhood...
Can't wait for next year to see all the pretty poppies. Well... not in that one neighbor's yard... Oh, you know what I mean!
FYI I just learned from Spadefoot Nursery how to tell a Mexican poppy from an Arizona Poppy...
