Our Gaillardia are still blooming at this late stage of the growing season. It brings a most welcome and most needed cheer at a time when most things are done blooming. Welcome cheer when Faye is in Day 35 of the tomato harvest and she, we, so look forward to it being done.
Bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis) carpet a meadow bordering Texas Highway 16 in the Texas Hill Country. Indian blanket (Gaillairdia pulchella) adds a pleasing contrast.
Indian blanket or Gaillardia pulchella, is a wildflower which grows throughout much of the eastern US. It grows all along the dry creek which runs through my old neighborhood in TX and I was pleased to learn that seed was available here. It has done well in our yard so far. It adds a cheerful splash of colour to the landscape.
