      I hadn’t either until they started popping up in the wild, here. They seem to need less cultivation than their showy cousins in pots. A singular one showed up in my yard this year and I’ve been living here for eight years.

      The little buggers appear to be spreading. That picture I took, that was the first time I had ever seen them. Judging by what I saw online, I think you can order them. They appear to be cold tolerant, too. I’m amused at the lone one that suddenly appeared in my yard. Some mums act like perennials and others don’t. They are curious. If it was a bulb like a Narcissus, I’d dig it up and mail it to you. But, mine has already expired and I certainly didn’t plant it. Odd…

    The flowers remind me of the Truffula trees…in the Lorax.

        Flashback without the drugs…that is what my job is… I actually love the tree…although it looks like it has seen it’s better days but it is beautiful in itself..is it a tree or stump?

          Right now, still a tree. A dead tree but, a tree. It is very slowly disintegrating. Here is a shot of it from my Snow Bomb post:

              Kinda sad to lose something so beautiful but, it will eventually return to Mother Earth…from whence it came. Unless some asshole cuts it down. THAT would be sad.

              PS…I’m a bit of a closet tree-hugger…sort of…😉
