Flowery Friday: Gaillardia.


We’ve FINALLY had some rain!  This bedraggled yet beautiful Gaillardia at the community garden is a bright spot in the grey.  Hope your weekend is fabulous!


  1. oh come on – all winter you are posting pics of snow and snow and ice and snow, and now finally summer is here, and you want some rain?!!!! But then if rain flowers brings I understand, have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Those colors are so beautiful, kind of like a ripe peach. It’s raining here every night, which is better than a drought, but it makes it hard to get into the garden!

    • Thank you! Our temperatures have soared again this week – what an extraordinary spring and summer (so far)! I can’t remember a June where we had so little precipitation.

      Enjoy the weekend – I can’t believe the week went by this quickly!

      • Thank-you Sheryl. I hope your weekend is fantastic! We have had a very dry month too and, until a couple of days ago, very cool and windy as well. We have warmth at last! 🙂

  3. I’m growing Gaillardia for the first time this year. Tough, beautiful, and is supposed to bloom from June to September (though this is claimed for many flowers, so I’m waiting to see it with my own eyes.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
