Late Bloomers

late bloomers

Early this summer, I scattered some wildflowers seeds.

Pretty, low-maintenance, and simple. Or so I thought.

I waited all summer for those seeds to grow. Plenty of grass and weeds grew, but no wildflowers. My vision of a wildflower garden faded.

It is now October. So imagine my surprise when I spotted these tiny flowers peeking out from behind my screen house. I quickly gathered them up and brought them inside before the frost could kill them.

Now, they are a sweet reminder of summer in my kitchen.
