Giveaway/ Quiz: Can you name more flowers than my 4 year old?

To thank my friendly readers we have a challenge and a prize! The prize is a super awesome giant package of late spring/ summer vegetable heirloom seeds to get you set for your summer garden! The challenge: I have created a little game I call " Can you name more flowers than my 4 year old?"

How to play- just leave a comment naming as many flowers on this page as you can. Hint: They are all blooming in our Texas garden right now. If you don't know the names but want to research them first- feel free.  I will block the comments from showing until the game has ended so you can't cheat off your fellow readers. Anyone who names as many or more than the Dirtiest Kid in the World will be entered in the drawing.  (To encourage you- she did not know them all.)

Maybe you are think this game is unfair because you really need the seeds more as a beginner gardener and you think the game should be called "Can you name more flowers than my 4 week old?" If so, you can still enter, just share this blog post on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest and leave a comment letting me know you did that. You will get to enter the drawing too!
If you want to guess and share this post- you can be entered multiple times times!  Game closes April 21st at Midnight. I will contact the winner and send you your seeds in the mail! Good Luck!

    I have an obvious edge in this competition (specifically, being raised by Jamie), plus nothing will grow in my rainforest-esque yard, but I love you just the same and think you're the coolest.

    I can name all but 3. However, I'd like to protest the inclusion of the dandelion. A seedhead is NOT a flower! :-)

    Very fun! Here's my best guesses...rose, dandelion, delphinium, tidytips, oriental poppy, arugula, snapdragon, evening primrose, lupine, viola, dianthus, lantana, calendula, zinnia. Pretty flowers! Do your chickens eat the calendula petals?
