My sister EJ is an artist and master gardener in Hailey, Idaho. She has drifts of flowers that spring into bloom after the deep winter snows - lupines, aquilegia, daisies, poppies, iris, coreopsis and, of course, these brilliant Gaillardia. This photograph was taken when she, another sister and I get together for our annual visit at her house.
A native wildflower, Gallardia is named after Antoine Rene Gaillard de Charentonneau, patron of botany, naturalist, amateur botanist and member of the Academie des Sciences, born 1720, France.
