For some reason, these don't always appear at the farm each Spring. Because of that, we love that somehow they are rarer than the other things popping up on a regular basis.

Sure enough, last weekend, they were in a few patches around the farm. The first time we ever saw one, the FIRST thing we both said was...
HORTON HEARS A WHO!!!!!!!
The iconic Dr. Seuss character who finds a whole world living on a speck on an awesome looking pink and yellow flower.

The only thing missing on ours are the striped stems, ha. They are SO pretty and so unusual, even if it is "just a weed", we love having them around.
I thought about cutting some to put in a small vase and see how long they last...and maybe we'll just have to start listening a little closer to them.
Hmm, just thought about it, maybe I should try to press some in my flower press?
