Can’t keep track. Can’t care. Love every one of them.
Should mention that these are also called a “blanket flower”. So if you’re looking in a nursery, that might be what you need to ask for. Get some. Your bees will be grateful.
Really like the detail in this one. From tongue to toes.
Don’t know what kind of bee this is – but it’s got a great face.
This one is Mesa Peach. And it’s a magnet for pollinators. I bought two more Gailardias this spring and I think several more are on order. Hope they’re as attractive to the bees as this one is.
Like going to the well. So many great pictures last summer of this particular bloomer. With hopefully more varieties this summer.
Been very cold and windy these last couple of days. So the camera has stayed in the house. Should warm up by the weekend. Which will be a relief from the high 20s/40s of the last little bit. I really like posting stuff day-of. Think it adds good value to the enterprise.
Great beeface on a Gaillardia Mesa™ Peach. Beautiful girl. Note the miniscule spider, too. For more on the Gaillardia as an wonderful flower for pollinators, see the February 11th post.
