2021 May Bachelor’s Buttons; Cornflowers on the verge

I have a couple different varieties of Bachelor’s Buttons, as they are called here. My grandmother used to grow these in a large swath at one side of the garden. These, zinnias, and moss roses (portulaca) are the flowers I most associate with her garden.

Having a garden, I now recognize why they reappeared in her garden in a large swath. They are vigorous re-seeders. Considered an annual, I do not have to replant them. It is really a matter of tearing them out to allow room for vegetable planting. I am terribly behind on my vegetable planting this year but hope to have many more things planted by the end of this week. And I will go to the nursery and buy a few plants –eggplant, for example.

Here are the bachelor’s buttons. Not yet in all of their glory.
