Update: Seeds from a Neighbor

You may remember me writing a few weeks ago that I had stopped and chatted with a neighbor while I was on a dog walk, and asked them about some great little orange flowers they had growing in their front beds.  Judy, the neighbor, didn't miss a beat and bent over, scooped up some seeds, wrapped them in a tissue and handed them to me.  Now I have the same happy little orange blossoms in my butterfly garden! 

This photo doesn't really do them justice -- in person they look very airy and light.  Just a couple of days after I took this photo, the number of blossoms had doubled.  They are perennials, and I am told they are prolific, so I am looking forward to their bright little bobbing heads all over my garden!
