Yesterday was the first rain of the season, a light mist that made the garden wet and saturated colors under a bright, but cloudy, sky. When I went out to photograph I was struck how my clump of Gaillardia in the side yard had proliferated. It’s hard not to love Gaillardia, and worth bearing mind that it is a native. Here’s a solo Gaillardia x grandiflora.
