Used coffee grounds...truly going green on this one!  LOL BTW go to Dollar store and pick up a container of BORIC ACID and sprinkle around outside of your house, works on roaches also, put around cabinets (spces between wall and counter tops.

Karla:
  re these used grounds or fresh out of the can grounds?  We have some ants (so far they haven't got into the house) but I'd like to keep them under control before they invade the house.

ls2116:
Patti the flowers look like sunflowers or are they a type of daisy.

yes, they are a member of the sunflower family.  These are called arrow leaf balsamroot.  The local Native Americans used many parts of the plant for food.   The nselxcin name for the seeds is methow, pronounced met-how.  Which is the name of the valley where Donna B and Marge P live.

They have a very large tap root.  The older ones can be wider than a man's arm and several feet deep.  We once tried to see if we could transplant a small one.   We couldn't find one small enough to dig up.   These plants can be very, very old.

Great pics Patty! they could grace my walls! Our Balsomroot won't be blooming here for at least another 3-4 weeks, so I enjoyed seeing yours very much.

Nantenn, my experience with Hancocks it that they put out a great catalong, but too often my orders have been slow in coming or back-ordered.

Yes, Girls, Sprout got lots of grammy/auntie hugs delivered yesterday. He had angel food cake and strawberries. Bossman came and helped him eat it, as did DD's boyfriend, and my co-worker (who only just got 'home' after living his real life in another state all winter). The kids drug us old fogies out into the yard and we had stick wars and played baseball with a broken broom handle and an old milk jug. LOL The whole town heard our party! My sides hurt from laughing.

Today Dh has taken a family leave day and we will be traveling across the state to see Un-Dad. He developed pnumonia after our Easter visit and spent a week in the hosp. They reliesed him to skill care, where his pnumonia got worse and he developed a secondary infection. He's now home, under hospice care.

Patti, very interesting.  I didn't know about how large the tap root was.  I do know they take a long time before they mature and start flowering.  I have been scattering seed since we moved here and I am just now (12 years) starting to see more balsamroot plants flowering.

CC, sounds like a grand time was had by all.  We celebrated Tyler's 9 week BD yesterday with a strawberry short cake, cake, yummm.

Sorry about your un-dad, prayers going up for him.  God Bless y'all.  (((((HUGS)))))

Oh, I'm loving all these pictures of wagon trains, wildflowers, and grandbabies!  My crocuses are finally blooming, but nothing else is green yet.  Should drop down to freezing again tonight, and then 90 predicted next week.  Dang, looks like it will be a year of no spring.
