I bought a wildflower seed mix when we were on vacation. I enjoy wildflowers and wanted some for the backyard, unfortunately I don't know the names of these varieties but they are beautiful!

Sorry somehow missed my tag here. @jon777 might have been the space after@ ? I can't really compare via the photos but here are three shots from here from 2014.
