i bought it at some nursery in Illinois. In all my traveling around on my job, whenever I see a nursery I stop and buy something different. The prairie smoke is pretty all year long because after the spring flower it has those smoky tuffs all the rest of the year blowing all around . you can buy it on the internet.

The rain and snow that have been predicted for us have not materialized but we could use the moisture too!

thanks for reading my blog today.

I do my best to remind myself when it seems like everything is going wrong - be patient. Those clouds WILL break.

could I truly appreciate the many blessings in my life if I didn't have the 'bad times'? Probably not.
