@gjones not in the garden, just when driving on roads the dead ones cover the front of your car and their dead bodies are like glue, hard to scrub off!

Do you have Plume Poppy? If not I'll send you some seeds. Awesome bee plant. Can get 6 to 8 ft tall. What else can I send? I have balm seed and will have mugwort soon. Do you have dock? I do.

@columbiariver these are from seeds that fell all over last year in pots etc! Still waiting for permitting/ financing/realtor people to get it all together 😔 someone keeps dropping the ball and extensions keep being made... My hope is to be in my house by Christmas!

Oh no. So sorry to hear that Theresa. Hope everything works out better for you as soon as possible. That must be so upsetting. My thoughts are with you for good days ahead in your new home. 🤞🤞👍😊 Lovely flower too 💗

That's so pretty - a bit different than your other ones! Just read your comment above - I didn't realize you hadn't moved onto your new property yet! Hope all the paperwork goes thru soon as I'm sure you're anxious and frustrated by now.

Thank you 🥰 @hkyfvr @gjones it is very frustrating! first it was all the rain, then something, and then something else... But tending to my downsized garden keeps me sane! I am seeing many different forms of this flower this year, it will be fun to see what flowers bloom next year 😁

You know I love these. Mine has taken awhile to get going but I think we might have enough time for a few flowers. Fingers crossed the frost stays away for a couple more weeks.

@treefrog44 it's hot here for the next few days (in the 30's), then we're back to normal autumn temps (around 18 to 19C)
