Along with comfrey, false indigo, and a couple of other deeply rooted bushes, Chris planted an annual/perennial flower mix in our apple guild this spring.
I forgot to take pictures when the flowers reached their peak a couple weeks ago. My niece and nephew, and their two friends from down the street, have had a lot of fun this summer making bouquets. Chris even showed my 4-year-old niece which flowers were edible – and she remembered a few weeks later when she came back! I don’t think she actually tried to eat any of them, but she did think it was pretty cool that there are flowers you can eat.
I’m not sure which of these are perennials, but I do hope the big, showy pink ones (in the second picture below) come back next year!
