verdun gaillardia is mesa yellow-aristata so should be hardy if not damp, going to harvest seeds from all my new ones for next spring

a friends family; gladys in her 90's, lise in her 70's, carol in her 50's and her son in his 20's about to be married. gladys sister died at 101 while shoveling snow, so its entirely possible there will soon be 5 generations alive at the same time and that is amazing. who said that you know you're getting old when the only parties you go to are funerals?

 gaura and gaillardia                                                                                                       when i look at the garden it seems tiny, when i care for it, it seems immense. it would be wonderful to have yours lizzie or chicky's-but as wintersong says you pick your spots and you takes your shots. oh lord cat brought in mouse, second cat snatched it away . has wintersong been on this summer?

artjak nice trimestris-also loved the silvery pink one -a couple of years ago the seeds suddenly disappeared from all US catalogs-pity, they are so much more decorative than the perennial
