Oh that's so pretty..what a lovely lush bouquet that would make. Mine seem to be sparse..tall and tend to lean over some times..not in this photo though.
Do you know the difference between the ones with the red centres pictured here beside the palin yellow blooms?

Thank you, Starzz! I didn't have luck with the ones with red centers. They all died! I prefer the plain yellow ones as I am partial to yellow flowers. Some of my Indian Summer do lean over, so I just stake them up with 4 feet-long stakes.

My Mom was hospitalized last week, and I made her a bouquet with all of these yellow flowers and some ferns. I must've used about 80 flowers. It made a big hit at the hospital. I got so many compliments. All the nurses wanted this bouquet. Some people even thought they were fake.

Lovely..we must have been thinking alike..hope your Mom's feeling better soon. I'm sure your flowers will have helped.
