Mexican Primrose

It was a perfect morning to be out in the garden pulling weeds. This is the first time I've ever had so many Mexican (evening) primroses blooming. The are in a bed where I put mulch last summer and they must have liked it.
They are pest free at the moment and I haven't seen the millions of baby grasshoppers that I expected. Maybe the cold spring helped to kill the eggs.
Now I must work on things inside this afternoon. Really. I should. I'll have to ignore the call from outside my door. It's really persistent and LOUD. Wedding details need to be taken care of INSIDE. INSIDE...

Marilyn: My son said that in Missouri they have a grasshopper that only comes every 10 years and it eats everything! Horrible! Your Mexican Primroses are a lovely Colorado Wildflower!

Oooh, it's hard to resist the call of the outdoor garden when inside details must be tended to.
Your flowers are beautiful, Marilyn, no wonder you want to spend more time with them. :)

Love the primroses! Your garden must be beautiful with everything starting to bloom. Have you had any rain - it's dry here. My next few posts will include some flowers from Germany and France plus some people you will probably recognize. What an enjoyable time I had with the Wiggins people!!! Sally
