Golden Coreopsis

Golden Coreopsis is blooming on the hill now!  It's a beauty!!
This particular stem was close to 4 feet tall.  
Unfortunately, I got chiggers from going into this tall grass 
on Saturday.  It's a miserable situation for me right now. :(


  1. Oh dear... beautiful blooms, but...

    There's a story from my father's childhood of going out into the grasses with bacon tied to his ankles to avoid getting chiggers..? Don't have them around here, so, no clue.

  2. I'll try anything.... and hey what wouldn't go for bacon!?

  3. Well, I think it was RAW! Kinda yucky sounding....
