B Is For Blanket

Beginning Bud With Yellow Center
Blanket Flower Bud
The Gaillardia, commonly known as blanket flower, this beautiful and colorful flower last long into late fall! It can withstand the hot sun, and the cold temperature. I know this as a fact since I witnessed it growing at the cemetery.

Red Blanket Flower
Beautiful Bloom of Blanket Flower
This gorgeous red bloom of blanket flower was eye catching in the sun. I maybe an odd person, but I found cemetery interesting, and there were always ample supply of different flowers to see.

Touch of Yellow
Touch of Yellow on Petals
Blanket flowers are varies in colors, from red, orange, yellow, maroon to mixes of yellow and orange. They are beautiful as well as show stoppers especially on a gray cold day.

At the end
When all the petals fell off, the seed-head remained for quite a while! It was just as interesting looking as the flower. This year the blanket flowers bloom earlier than usual and not as tall.

Bless you for READING!
