  7. I might have to come to your neighborhood to steal seed heads! A gardener friend gave me some many years ago that were a lovely soft pink, but less and less of them reseed every year. I'm pretty sure there won't be any next year, something about the soil in our yard we have now that they don't like would be my guess.

    1. That is the problem with the one I took, I have not seen one of them for a couple of years since I had the extension on the house done
