This week, May 4-10, is National Wildflower Week. In honor of the beautiful wildflowers that exist everywhere and that should be lauded, appreciated, and most importantly, planted and nurtured, this is just a little reminder of the beauty that is easy to achieve and maintain.
Check out the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s informative website and learn about wildflowers and native plants for your region. Wildflowers impart a sense of place, provide sustenance for wildlife and are easy to grow and pretty to look at. Ask your local nurseries to supply native plants and seeds and rid yourself of wasteful, sterile, water-guzzling lawns and plant natives and wildflowers instead.
You’ll be glad you did and so will the wildlife endemic to your region.
