What’s better than flowers? Free flowers!
The year after my rude, entitled neighbour dumped all her snow in my back garden (and killed one of my forsythias), she planted yellow cone flowers (left side of photo) on the border of her property. They migrated onto my property and then I had the fence installed, which guarantees new flowers on my side every year. 🙂
Last year I picked some goldenrod (right side of photo) which grows in great abundance on the side of the road. I sprinkled the flowers, after drying them, in the back garden in the hope they would bloom this year. Much to my delight, they did! 🙂
