I love your article, it is such a great inspiration!
I adore wildflowers and native plants, and I wish I could have them all, but I have to content myself with about one hundred species, not enough room in my yard.
The wonder of it all amazes me.

Josephine, I would be in heaven if I were in the middle of your 100 species; I've seen enough of your pictures to know how beautiful it is at your house. And your Partridge Pea is lovely.

I'm so looking forward to more of your Wildflower Week.
Thank you. Smiling

Great article Sharon - thank you so much!

I do love wildflowers and yes, I let them grow in my perennial bed. I do have to tame them occasionally though Whistling
