I have an abundance of Gloriosa Daises growing in my prairie. This is the first time I’ve seen a double bloom.

After a recent visit to the Duluth Rose Garden I walked back to Canal Park along the Lakewalk. There were flowers blooming all along the lakewalk.

The Gloriosa Daisies are in full bloom on the farm. I’m not sure why I have these growing in my prairie. What I think happened is I have a cluster of Black-eyed Susan’s planted in the yard. They are all the color of the daisy in the last photo but quite a bit smaller. At the end of the season I cut them back and dump them out in the prairie. I think these came up from seed and when they did they seemed to have taken on different characteristics.

The nice thing about Alfalfa is it comes in a wide variety of colors.

The Ox-eyed Daisies are just about gone. They started blooming just as we were leaving for Iceland and were almost done when we returned.

I’ve been up early in the morning to photograph flowers blooming on the farm. It’s been difficult because of the wind. I’ve had a couple of days with minimal wind. There are a lot of Sweet William blooming in the prairie. I think these were planted about 15 years ago when I tried to plant wildflowers in my prairie. After dynamiting the hard clay I was able to get the seeds into the ground. To my surprise I had some beautiful flowers. Most were gone in a year but the Sweet Williams hung on and are now flushing.

I have a large number of Gloriosa Daisies growing in the prairie. I’m not sure where they came from but every year I mow them down in the fall and they continue to spread.

For the second year in a row I planted wildflowers in the garden. For the second year in a row they actually grew. This year I used a butterfly mix. the flowers look great but I haven’t seen any butterflies on them. Here are some photos from last week.
