A few weeks ago I planted what I thought were Shasta daisies along with some wildflower seeds on either side of the duck pen entrance.
The packet said Shasta Daisy and the front of it clearly showed white Shasta daisies, just like the ones I have out front. I don’t know about you, but I assume that the combination of the name and the picture implies that I should, indeed, expect white Shasta daisies to grow. I was hoping for a pop of white in among the reds, pinks, purples and yellows.
Instead, they came out yellow and get lost in there among the others.
Now I am not complaining, because they are lovely, but I’d have preferred white ones there. Ah, well.
I’m also curious how I ended up with this lone flower growing out front, under the red maple. I don’t remember planting it so I’m assuming it got brought in by one of the visiting birds who visit the feeder in that tree maybe?
I don’t even know what it is so I may have to post it to the gardening forum and ask the experts. It’s quite lovely and I hope it comes back next year!
Speaking of next year, I can’t wait to see how big the willow hedge along the back fence will get. They are all well over 6′ now and are still growing like mad.
I am so happy we planted these, especially since they are building new houses behind us now. It will provide a nice privacy barrier and (theoretically) a wind block. I’m not holding out hope that anything can stop the wind here, though, but it sounds nice. 😁
