Poor Country Boy Gardening

Poor country boy gardening is when you want or need something for your garden and can't afford it. So you get creative on how to get it trading or bartering for it. digging it up out of an empty field or off the side of the road or a neighbors yard.

round 2 on amaryllis second stalk bloomed out nicely at least 3 more on the way  wu hu so cool to watch such a dramatic flower do this mostly on it's own.  sorry flower geek it's just kinda cool growing something as nice looking as this. not every one can and I used to not be able to do it.

Jon, I have heard of Blue Bonnets but have never seen any.  Thanks for the pics.  They are wonderful and so fun to look at.

With so many you'd think they wouldn't mind sharing a little :)

My son wanted to pic one but they say that because it's the state flower it's illegal to mess with them much.  They reseed I have tried the seed but haven't been able to get it to do anything not sure why.
