It seems there is a special week for almost everything in America. However, this week’s special concern is really a good one — it’s Wildflower Week! In honor of the occasion, I thought I would share some photos of a few of my favorite native plants.
According to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s website: “National Wildflower Week was founded in 1987 by the American Wildflower Society and taken on by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in 2002.” It is a celebration of the natural beauty and the ecological importance native plants.
Here’s a good synopsis of the importance of wildflowers.
