I have started sowing wildflower seeds along this area between the trees and highway.
There is a huge ditch there and always ugly weed.
Thumb of 2015-01-15/hazeleyes/ae3496
Sowing
1/4 pound butterfly garden mix
1/2 Pound of Perennial/ Annual Wildflower mix
mixed daylily seeds


If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Welcome! to the wildflowers forum Hazelyes Welcome!
I hope your seeds do well, wildflowers can be so beautiful along the roadways.
Here in Texas we owe a lot to Lady Bird Johnson for starting the highway beautification program.
I hope yours works as well as hers Smiling

Welcome!
Sowing wildflowers is very important for the pollinator population in any area.
And a wildflower planting keeps on reseeding so the effect continues through the years.

Is it safe from the mowers there? I hate the highway mowers! The guy helping me get rid of things lately while I'm cleaning up around here wanted to weed-whack a limited area. I let him...it's January and there's nothing but some mostly dormant grasses there. I told him...not anywhere else! And he said "Yes, ma'am! I remember when you yelled at my brother one time about your native plants!" Green Grin! Guess they know me by now!
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White

I love your idea! Best luck for it!!

I've been collecting seeds from some of the plants along a dirt road where I take pics of wild flowers, waiting for it to be mowed. When I saw that it had been mowed, I took the seeds on my next trip and scattered them back (except a few I hope will grow wild Ipomoea vines over top of our doghouse.) Hopefully the show will be even better this year and next! It only gets mowed every 2-3 yrs, that I've seen.
