Sweeeeet Annie...........

I'm seein' sweet annie everywhere!! I've picked so many bunches for friends and my shoppes........trying to figure out just how to preserve some of this sweetness. I do like it dried but want to preserve some too. I have even found some of the autumn red variety! WooHoo....I did not realize how many varieties of sweet annie are out there! Just look at this latest bunch that I found on the side of the road!
My house is filled with drying annie bunches EVERYWHERE!

  5. you won't believe it but it grew in my front flower bed too....from delphinium seeds....not sure how that happened...didn't know it came from those gorgeous flowers. I even have delphinuum (blue spikey flowers) blooming again...with sweet annie sprouted out of the plant....stranger than strange!! There are many varieties of sweet annie though...
