The wildflowers are blooming like crazy right now, especially the purple verbenas. Fio and husband have a lot of wild ones on the sides of their long driveway and several tame ones in their front planting bed.
Fiorella loves verbenas. They're faithful, coming up every year bigger and better, and they're grateful, reaching up their long arms to thank you for the water you've ruined your hip to give them.
The whole world should be like verbenas.
