The name of this festive wildflower is close to “Galliard,” the name of a brisk Renaissance dance. My husband planted these two years ago. They’re windworthy of the prairie, as well as a joy for the eyes.

Ha ha ha! Actually sounds like the typical breakfast of someone I know after a night out with the girls!
That actually sounds very alarming!

Sounds vile, wouldn’t know myself ( don’t drink alcohol) but burnt toast? Must be some chemical reaction as it burns…
I find a lot of things to appreciate about being gluten intolerant. . . 🙂
At least there’s more variety now than say 20 years ago. My younger son has been vegetarian for nearly a year now, and he eats so much better now, wider range of food etc. I knew someone who was allergic to mushrooms- what is there in a mushroom to be allergic to?
It’s easy to get good gluten-free flours–buckwheat, sorghum, coconut. . .I make my own bread; the g/f bread on the market tastes like school paste, and most of it has rice, which I can’t eat either.
I have no idea what allergens lurk in mushrooms; I love them but my husband can’t eat them, so we don’t have them.
I used to enjoy making my own bread, buckwheat etc. sound interesting, might have to have a go with some different flours. The shop bought breads seem bland and chewy, bit of a pointless eating exercise really.
I make crisp flatbreads and I think they’re really tasty, especially spread with sunflower seed butter.
Oh they sound really good! I shall have to do some recipe research : )
I just do online recipe searches and adapt them to what I can eat.
Yes, I follow a couple of lovely food blogs that have recipes that can be adapted for vegetarians, so that makes sense : )
I worked in a coffee shop once, and it always smelled really nice, but the taste…burnt toast…
Please don’t blog-flog me for saying so, but that was honestly my impression of British coffee. . .
Not being a coffee drinker at all I am both unoffended and unsurprised by your opinion of British coffee…my older son went through a phase of drinking coffee with guarana…after pulling him off the ceiling three or four times, I threw it away!
I wonder if the guarana enhancement was to thwart the taste. . .
But I recall that burnt toast is part of the universal poison antidote triad–the other two parts are milk of magnesia and strong coffee!
They’re pretty, little sunbursts!
That’s what I think, too–sunbursts! Yet they’re familarly called Blanket flowers!
Does that refer to how they grow and cover the ground?
I suppose so, but I’ve never actually seen them as a ground cover–but certainly it would be a beautiful one!
I read a book called “The Chamomile Lawn” years ago, and I never quite got the sense of it till I went to a house where there was one…it was soft to walk on and smelled lovely!
I’ve seen chamomile plants, but I have no recollection of the fragrance. I imagine a lawn of little (aren’t they yellow?) flowers would be pretty. I’ve just never cultivated a taste for chamomile tea!
I think they can be yellow or white, my son drinks chamomile and green tea..I think they both taste odd and stick to Typhoo tea!
Good idea. . .I find green tea good with lemon-ginger tea.
I’ve tried to like herbal teas but my one experience with jasmine tea put me off-it was like drinking cheap perfume…or how I would imagine it would be, not that I’ve ever tried it!
Any tea but strong black, like Irish Breakfast, is definitely an acquired taste as far as I’m concerned–and I’m not too acquisitive. I’m a strong-black coffee type.
