Indian blanket (Gaillairdia pulchella) is such a cheerful flower and always brings a smile.
I have come down with a cold. It’s more an annoyance than anything else, but is dragging me down a bit.
As an antidote here is a reminder that mild days are ahead, and wanted to share my reminder with you. Our gaillardia in joyous bloom.
I rarely fail to smile when looking at our gaillardia. Cheerful, bright bursts of sunshine at ground level. Sometimes I get down to their level to better appreciate their beauty.
Our gaillardia were pleasingly happy this year, as this industrious (and in non-stop motion) honeybee attests.
These gaillardia grace our property. Although the minimalist shades and colours of winter have their own beauty, sometimes it’s good to add a splash of colour to your life.
