Wild Flowers in October

Okay, this is probably going to be my lamest post as of yet but I had to tell someone so you can now count yourself as the lucky 'one.' Last spring when I was shopping for flowers to plant in my backyard (almost all of which were quickly killed by my dog) I found this packet of wildflower seeds that I thought were really interesting. It was just a piece of paper with the flower seeds in it and you only had to lay it across the soil and water it. Anyway, it didn't take long for it to begin to grow but I only got one or two blossoms off it all summer long. Needless to say, I was disappointed. However, I went out there a few days ago and found that in the middle of October, my wildflowers had finally decided to blossom - even with the freezing temperatures. And I was so excited by this and thought it was so unusual that I took pictures to prove it. These pics were taken this morning before I left for work. I just hope that all of those little buds blossom before they really do freeze or my dog decides that they're part of his territory too.

It is so crazy this year. I've put off pulling my flower beds because they actually look good now! Oh well...bring on the holidays I'm tired of weeding!

So, you have a gardening talent that you've been hiding all this time!!!!

Hey, I popped over here to see a pic of your Halloween costume but it wasn't here. Come on, let's see it! Blue is one of those colors that looks so great on you.

All of the true things that I am about to tell you are shameless lies.
