Late Bloomers are extra pretty

Our front-yard garden has been very satisfying this year: We harvested tomatoes, zucchinis, various herbs and lots of kale.

For the optics and for edible and spreadable seeds we had nice looking sun flowers growing all summer and fall.

And now – drum roll – we are also seeing some pretty flowers from a Vesey’s seed mix blooming, that we purchased last year through a Garden Club fund-raiser by Duc D’Anville Elementary school.

Kudos to Kam and the PTA for coordinating these lovely fund-raisers and the Garden Club!
