Today's post is not about my current quilting activity (although I've been piecing every day), it's about native spring wild flowers here in Ohio. The spring before Covid, I visited the southwest corner of Ohio to participate in a Wild Flower Pilgrimage and have wanted to return each spring since. Finally this spring, in the company of a friend, I was able to do that.
I think that first trip was a turning point for me and my home garden because now I just want to fill it with native wild flowers. Their beauty has won me over and the more I learn about their importance to building a healthy natural habitat that attracts insects and birds, the more fascinated I have become. I've spent many pleasant hours during Covid viewing webinars about the importance of native habitats and am convinced this is the right direction to go with my home garden.
So let me show you some of the beauty I enjoyed over the past few days! It's hard for me to resist a path that begins like this -- greeted by wild blue phlox and lured ahead by Virginia bluebells . . . .
