Thomas, I'm glad you had the experience of wild turkeys with little ones. I get a thrill every time a flock comes through our yard. Tonight we saw a female deer walk through our white Dutch clover patch, nibbling as she walked.
The other day my wife came hurrying in, grabbed my arm and pulled me outside.... and there in our backyard ... a flock of wild turkeys strutting, single filed toward our creek.
This is the first time I've seen wild turkeys. We counted three adult females and 12 little ones.
I thought wild turkeys were extincted but this proved not to be.
I don't care for the light blue mums, but do like the dark blue and purple ones. I feel the same about most blue flowers. I especially like fluorescent blue flowers.
Kathy, thank you for the information about Moon Flowers. That led me to nigh blooming plants. A wonderful idea. I know just where I will sow those seeds. It is an annual this far north, but the literature stated it will grow and blossom in a season.
Oh~ my mistake, Daniel, I found this site from you and reposted.
I have trouble finding blues for my gardens, and the one they show on the "Borrowed genes" article is not something I want. There is a photo deeper into the article that has some very pretty blues. I'll have to be careful when I order to make sure I get a color I want.
Borrowed genes give mums the blues
Thanks to "Naonobu Noda, of the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization in Tsukuba, Japan, and colleagues were surprised to find that inserting only two borrowed genes into chrysanthemums created blue flowers. One gene, from Canterbury bells, got the enzyme process started; the other, from butterfly peas, further tweaked the pigment molecules."Borrowed genes give mums the blues"
Home grown potatoes every day. Makin' me jealous with those tasty tubers.
