Dad loves California Poppies, he has banks and banks of them around his yard.

We found a recipe of how to make poppy balls out of seeds and fertilizer and want to get the neighborhood together to make the hundreds it would take to seed the mountain. Steve could fly us over it and I could drop the bombs. We could all be famous for generations to come!
Sounds like a plan to me.
Lady Bird Johnson would love you.

I'm barely getting flowers on my lilac bushes. I'm wondering if the cold temps affected the buds like it did a few years ago.

Pretty, GG! We have a massive patch of Dogtooth violets in our woods, they're about done blooming now.

They're a native wildflower. If you dig them up or step on them, they'll die. This patch has increased in size over the years.

I have plenty of "regular" violets growing in the yard.
