    After an amazing amount of rain this winter, along with waist-high weeds I found one of these in my back yard. I've lived here almost 30 years and never seen a Mojave Aster before. Before it passed, I captured some seeds so I won't have to wait another 30 years!:)

    My understanding is they’re edible. Never tried them but always like giving things like that a go. I learned that the fruit from fuchsias is edible. I had two types and one was actually pretty darn good.

    Was there supposed to be pictures? If so, they don't show up on my screen.

    As much rain as we've had this spring and the continued cool temps, my lawn looks like an emerald….and Joyce's many flower beds....holy cow!! With us having missed the better part of 5 years of being able to really take care of the place, this year the effort shows....but I SURE wish the sun would put in an appearance longer than 20 minutes every 3rd day...AARRRGGGHHHH!!! I am so tired of gray skies.

    I understand your frustration. My last year in Washington State it rained for 90 straight days. Not seeing the sun for three months can get a feller down. Been nice here in OK the past few days. Today reached 92° and sunny.
    Daylilies are great, definitely have to be adding some. Also I’d like to learn what wild edibles are native to the area.

    This isn't normal for here....usually it isn't anyway. I don't know if Joyce or I could take 3 months of the middle ages...lol!. The last January we were in Wyoming we saw the sun two days. Where we lived was caught in an inversion....brother. Fog in the morning, low clouds in the afternoon, like you could reach out and pull them down....ugghh. Right now we're getting our 20 minutes of sunshine....ya-hoo.

    Reminds me of the time we went to Panama for Jungle training and survival school. Supposedly it had been scheduled during the dry season and not the rainy season. Could not tell the difference. It was raining when we arrived and 4 weeks later it was still raining. Can't imagine what the rainy season is like, probably more wetter than wet.

    What in the world does a Day Lilly look like?

    Daylilies have long, flat strap-shaped blades that grow in clumps from the crown of the plant, at the soil line. Daylilies grow from about one foot high up to four feet tall. Daylilies also grow from thick, tuberous roots that are easily divided.Oct 2, 2019

    We have a couple of them. they are just starting to come up. Each individual flower only lasts 1 day(i guess that's why they call them daylilies):rolleyes: Lucky each plant produces lots of flowers that bloom over, for me about a month.

    I have them every where. They are pretty, but a lot of work to control!
