WOYWW and Wildflower Wednesday

Linking up with Julia over at Stamping Ground for WOYWW.  Ran out of paint again for the apartment downstairs, which is being slowly  transformed into my crafting/shoppe area.  Therefore, the kitchen nook area table  ... ... you just get to see a tiny area of it.. :)
Various stages of glass pendants, earrings and tie tacks. Various stages of scrabble tile pendants and earrings, beads, earring hooks and studs, microglaze, scissors, chains, findings... so imagine, or not, the rest of the table, sigh.
If you are here just for WOYWW stop now..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  Ms. Doris gave me a few different cuttings a couple of months ago.  Ahh, I see I have another color of  Native Salvia Coccinea , the most common planted wildflower in Florida, at least the southern half...I'm north.  Already in the gardens are the salmon and red color.  Annual to zone 4, survives winters in zones 9, 10 and sometimes 8 (I'm 8, it does just fine).  Plantings also persist by reseeding if established.  For Gail: Attracts the attention of nearly every pollinating insect, especially bees and larger butterflies. It is also a hummingbird nectar source.
These are recessive genes, if the red is planted nearby they will all revert back to red.  I have red in another part of our yard, so far so good with the salmon colored one.
Have a blessed day~~!

I have discovered beading recently - it's a very slippery slope. LOL!! I am having to be very strict with myself and not just dive into all the beady goodness that is tempting me at the moment...

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I didn't realize salvias were native to your area. That white sure is pretty. I can't remember which kind I have, but I am hoping the hummers we saw last year come back.

Have fun with your crafting.

Boy, would I like to play in your crafting bin. The findings are sweet, and it looks like just maybe you have a shrinky-dink thing there, or it may be just my imagination because I want to make some SD earrings with maybe Frieda's portrait.

Love the wildflowers, too.

Nancy

Love your workspace (even if it is the kitchen table)! I just finished painting and organizing my craft room. Ack! What a chore that was :) Good luck as you finish up yours! Love all the bits and pieces you have.

What a beautiful salvia!

Gail said...

it is a beautiful salvia~ and I love the jewelry projects, too.

scrappymo! said...

Well, you taught me something new about the flowers...I did not know they would revert back.
Your jewelry bits and bobs look like fun!

Donna Heber said...

Wonderful pendants Darla! Your wildflowers are beautiful. I have heard the same story about planting pink and white bleeding hearts near each other. The white ones will eventually become pink.

Lona said...

So busy now with your crafting. That is wonderful. That white blooming salvia is a pretty little flower. Have a wonderful weekend Darla.

Queen Lightwell said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment! I love your jewelry pieces...but what is that microglaze stuff? Is it what you use to make your pieces look like they are under a dome of glass? That's kinda what the Magic-glos I've been using does but its pretty expensive and since I make jewelry *mostly* for fun I've been scouting a less expensive way to get that effect. Next I'm trying glass rocks and some clear acrylic stuff...anyways, your pieces look fun and I hope your crafting/shoppe area comes together quickly and perfectly!
