The flowers are in bloom here making us and the insects very happy.
Steve made a short video of a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth nectaring on their favorite Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa). Wow!
Check out our list of available plants and some fun facts about them: 2017 Native Plant List & Prices.
Take a Native Plant Nursery Tour.
Did you notice the plant labels? They are printed by us and attached to repurposed old, plastic plant pots that Steve cut up. So far, they are holding up great in the sun and rain and should make shopping for potentially unfamiliar plants much easier.
At our Open Days this year, we will have our native plants for sale, plus some cool handcraft. Theresa Gonzalez pictured on the left below, Steve's sister, is a fantastic seamstress and knitter so we will have some of her wares available.
These seed aprons are perfect for gardening! I love mine and you can bet I will have mine on when you visit.
Theresa also makes colorful and useful bowl cozies for holding those items that are just too hot or too cold. We love ours so much I put nature artifacts in there sometimes, too.
Knit bag or hand warmers? She's got one or two of you covered on these items...
We will also have some wood totes and a few cutting boards made by us for sale.
Remember to bring your cameras and/or binoculars if you want to walk the trails and observe all the cool nature happenings. We look forward to seeing you!
