See, I’m nice to her sometimes.
We get these orange flowers almost every spring and summer here, but for some reason last year they didn’t show up. I think they didn’t like our unseasonably late April snow dump. All we saw were one or two little orange blossoms all summer.
But this year they’re back out again, and I think even more of them are coming out to make up for last year. They’re called Globe Mallow.
This is what the plants look like.
Here’s a sprig to put in your May Day basket.
But this next globe mallow really decided to outdo the others.
It became a hat for this prickly pear cactus.
Oh yeah, I just remembered. Isn’t there supposed to be a May Pole or something?
Guess I’ll just wind my leash around my person. I don’t see any other poles around here. She’ll have to do.
