Wildflowers & a Super Cool Greenhouse

I hope that everyone had a splendid Midsummer! I had a great day outdoors doing my rounds and I picked a bunch of wildflowers.

I wildcrafted some Vipers Bugloss, Rough-Fruited Cinquefoil (Tormentil), Wild Rose, Red Clover, Ox-Eye Daisy, Rough Cinquefoil (Strawberry Weed), Yellow Hawkweed (Field Hawkeed), Orange Hawkweed (Devil's Paintbrush). I held off getting the St. John's Wort until a little later because there wasn't much blooming yet.

Here are some photos of some of the pretties:









Also, check out this video produced by Peak Moment! It features a 'Geodesic' greenhouse that belongs to Buckhorn Gardens:




Sláinte!

Beautiful! Such colour in your house! It's supposed to feel like 37 here today, though, so I'm apprehensive about being outside with nature. >.> I'll have to definitely seek shade!

...a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers...Mother Nature always seems to know what she's doing! Interesting video on the Geo-garden. I bet it does have a unique energy inside! (I would love to have one of those during our cold winters.)

We always underestimated how beautiful wild flowers are. Thanks for sharing. Anna :)

Thanks everyone! :)

Medusae: Lol, no wonder us Canadians are always complaining about the weather! ;)

Kelly: I would love one too, even if it is only 100 sq feet!
