My first visit here. I am interested in your wild flowers... from seed. I planted a bag of wildflower seeds last fall and this year quite a few came up. Mine are in a shady wooded location. They say that it will be sort of a messy garden the first year and not to cut it down until the flowers have gone to seed. I am getting ready to cut it down now. All in all, I was very happy with what came up.
I believe that your first blue flower is a corn flower. We used to call them Bachelor's Buttons. I enjoyed my visit here and will come back.
