During my morning walks along the marsh I've recently been enjoying the Blue-Eyed Darner Dragonflies hanging around the Tule Reeds near the boardwalk.

~Sharing The Magic Of A Garden~
Peggy caught this image of an Indian Blanket Flower (Gaillardia pulchella) yesterday evening as the sun was lowering in the sky over Earth Home Garden. Indian Blanket Flower (also known as Firewheel) is a hardy drought-tolerant perennial wildflower native to the Plains States. It's also the State Flower of Oklahoma.
Ours come from a wildflower seed mixture I planted over 20 years ago about where the giant rock birdbath is now. We've enjoyed their reliable profusion of summer color scattered throughout the garden ever since.
