Building An Earthship In Darfield, B.C.

We are a family of five living in Darfield, BC.
Our house is six hundred square feet in total and we are feeling cramped.

We have decided to build an earthship!

So starts the adventure ...

Help us identify the mystery flower

Stephen's student teacher gave him seeds in February before she went back to school. He couldn't remember what they were so we planted them indoors and this spring we transplanted outdoors. The plant was green for the longest time (and snaked out like a vine). The stems and leaves are rubbery. A few weeks ago the green stems and leaves started to turn red. A few days ago it bloomed! It closes at night and then opens again during the day. Nobody we know has been able to identify this flower! Can anybody put us out of our misery????

Hi Stephen,
I hope you received my email about the flowers! (If you did not they are called Livingston daisies and I purchased the seeds at Art Knapp). Hope your summer has been a fantastic one so far!
