Bluebonnet Harvesting Time!

My bluebonnets have been looking AWFUL for the past 2 weeks or so.  I had a beautiful show for a few weeks, but it's been at the expense of my daylilies, silver and gold chrysanthemum, and a couple other plants.  I've been stressing about their recovery, and I can finally start harvesting the bluebonnet seed and removing the dying plants.  Phew!!!!

  1. Bluebonnets! I keep forgetting you're in Central Tejas and can have them every year. I am SO jealous!

  4. Yes. We have to suffer all those brown and dying plants if we want seed for next year. I still have some I haven't pulled out. Then I have a big tub of seeds to shell. TV time, I guess. They do tend to overpower don't they?
