Cleome Queen Mix

 These seed with many seeds, I think with every flower bud there are hundreds of seeds.
I pulled up bunches of them to get the right amount in my small garden. They make a great showing when they all bloom. The only thing they do not smell  very good.

I SO love those flowers, and have planted some here twice, but they didn't come back up.

Imagine a HOT Mississippi Summer of the Fifties---two little girls up under the old house (remember when houses were up high on those big concrete pyramid-blocks?), a jar lid or old cup in hand, just shelling away at those tee-ninecy "beans" with our grubby little fingers.

Mammaw would catch us occasionally, and make us put them in the ground somewhere around in the flowerbeds. I guess they came up, too, because it was practically a meadow of the big old pink or purple spidery flowers with the tempting little doll-size beans to "cook" with.

TV and "games" have never the charm of those imagination games back then.

You and Mr. The Bennie stay cool.

The spider flowers! We have them around here. In fact, I did a post on them way back when. They are strange flowers indeed!

I've never seen them before but they are really pretty even if they don't have a nice smell.
