I saw these growing in my “wildflower” garden (and no that is not code for just a weeds, I did once upon a time plant seeds there, although a lot of them do resemble weeds), but these were kinda pretty, with just a touch of wildness…like me, haha, j/k :) Anyway, I have no clue what they are called. I like the accents of lavender and white with the soft green. Wonder if they will grow back.
Question? Is anyone else a bit scared of wildflowers or things growing in general in your garden?
I’m always afraid of bringing nature into the house for fear of what is hiding under a leaf or in a pedal. I don’t need some freaky white spider jumping into my face or strange spotted thing crawling onto my hand. Still, I admit that my heart pounds slightly (or more then slightly) when I venture into my “wildflower” garden…no, not weeds!…cause things flying, jumping, speedy crawling all startle me way beyond what is normal. Yesterday, a lizard almost launched me into a heart attack…thought it was a snake for a second. Maybe if I did venture into my “wildflower”…ok, weeds!…garden then it wouldn’t be so jungle-ish and frightening. I will try to find time to tame it more often and discover more beauties like these purply-spindly weeds, er, flowers.
