Clouds on the mountain and a soft rain falling and I remember the flower seeds
Yesterday I took the timers off the faucets and brought in the sprinklers. The fall rains are coming and it is wonderful to see the clouds come in bringing the soft moist air. The tables and outdoor chairs have been brought into the garage and I'm ready for the change of the season.
Today I'll spread the wildflower seed I bought a few weeks ago. I planted some last fall and had great success. The whole area around the new house had a continuous display blue, pink, purple and orange flowers. Some of the wildflowers will reseed, but to make sure and even increase the blooms, i'm planting more and today is the perfect day to do it.
Territorial seed has a great California wildflower mix I use. It has aprroximately 20 species of native and naturalized wildflowers are drought tolerant but will appreciate some water during the hottest part of the year. You can look forward to plants ranging 3 to 4 feet tall with blooms in shades of purple, red, white, yellow, and blue from spring through fall.
