When the poplar tree died and they ground out the stump, there was a big, gaping hole in the ground. My husband trotted off to Home Depot (as husbands are wont to do) and bought a packet of wildflower seeds (which husbands aren’t generally known for).
He dumped out the packet into the hole, then threw it away.
Now, we have this in our front yard:
And it’s really pretty, right?
But here’s the thing . . . I’d like to know what all those flowers are. I’ve taken my best guess for each and I’m thinking I could use a little help. So, if you have an idea, leave it in the comments.
This one, I think, is a Cosmos (not Cosmo . . . get your head outta the liquor cabinet):
But, I think this is a Cosmos, too. (Made with Cointreau.)
This, I think, is a California Poppy (unrelated to the poppy extract sold elsewhere in the City):
This could be a scabiosa (not the kind on your knee):
I’m sure this is a cornflower. Belongs in the midwest, I know, but here it is in Baltimore.
I have no idea what this little guy is:
Or this guy:
Or even this guy:
I know there are Four O’Clocks in that there patch, but I can’t seem to catch ’em while they’re open.
There are more flowers coming everyday. If you could help me identify these flowers, I’d be forever in your debt (but I will not pay you).
