The view from my perch on the mountain

Granny’s Bonnet

Don’t know the scientific name or even if Granny’s Bonnet is the right name. That’s just what I’m told they’re called and they’re my favorite in my wife’s garden. She has them growing in several planters around the yard.

    • My Mom really likes these. Most of hers have been crowded out by the Sundrops and other flowers that have underground runners.
