Everlasting Flower -

Last week I posted a photo of the everlasting flower bud (or at least the flower closed for the day)...and got lots of comments and inquires about it...So today I since I finally manage to catch it open with my camera handy, I thought I would share some more photos and TRY addressing some of the questions..

Back in the spring I grabbed a packet of seeds called *fill in the blank* (Everlastings) I planted them in trays inside like all my other seeds...eventually transplanting them into the garden about March or April I guess...then forgot about them...Until last week.

Well I thought and even told a few ppl they were called Helichrysum...but now I am not so sure...I think they might have been the Asters...Unfortunately all my carefully places name tags become
toys for a certain little princess, making it a fun guessing game to what I actually planted.

This is what had to say about the Everlastings

I do know when I see the seeds in the store this coming season I will be sure and grab a bunch of packets.
