don't follow the directions

This is what happens when you don't follow the directions, which said to thin the plants as seedlings sprout. This was a "butterfly mix" and I didn't even look to see what flowers seeds it included. What a wonderful surprise to have most of it grow up to be bachelor's buttons!


  1. OK, so I'll try again to post. Everything in your garden looks awesome! Glad those damn RATS are still being kept out. Has Hilldog caught any since you've been home? Love & miss you, my sista D & bffl. G -) xo

  2. This time your comment is here :) Yes, the "rats" (which I will identify for the rest of my readers as ground squirrels) are in fear of our little 10 pound dog. She's up to 19 so far this summer! Surpassed last years total of 18. Go Hilldog!!! xoxo

  3. I remember seeing a type of these blooming on our little farm as a child. I always wondered what was a bachelor button -- on a man's shirt or something
