Frist one looks like those
strawflowers you can dry???
And they are on on sunny days,
but when it rains they seem to close up.
Second, I know and will relook
and post in a bit.
(I want to say something like autibutillon's
or something, can't spell)
Third, no clue??

Papito,
I look at flower magazine's ALL WINTER!!!
I'm on 40 or 50 gardening catalogs.........
Plus magazines I get...
I remember what flowers look like........
It drives me nuts when I remember what they
are but can't remember names....
That's why I started gardening in the first place
to keep my brain active... And that's why I
study those pictures to keep remembering.......
I never knew what the yellow flowers actual names where, I had a hanging basket once and they were
dryable flowers and they closed when they got wet.
I don't think there ever was a tag, but knew they were dryable.
And the other, the Million Bells, I KNEW I'd seen those before...but just had to search.
We had fun though, the boys and I sat on the bed, and I got my gardening books and they got their Santa wish books out and we all sat there and wished!! It was a fun afternoon!!

I have to start practicing on and bark for reconizing trees..... My father knew every tree there was, But I never had much interest in them then, but just to keep my self busy and to learn.

And learn the leaves on plants for leaves of interest!! Like Pulminarias, during the year after the flowers go bye~bye!!!

Weezie

P.S. You got to get an envelope on your name so we can IM you!!!

P.S.S. I've never even seen the third one though!!

Bill, we need to get more of those!!
