I’m looking forward to participating in the NDAL webinar lectures and panel discussion on restoring biodiversity titled Seed to Landscape (how to create an awesome habitat garden with a handful of seed) on August 13, 2020, part of the webinar series Ecology, Culture and the Designed Landscape hosted by New Directions in the American L:landscape and co-sponsored by The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and Wild Ones – Native Plants, Natural Landscapes. see below link for details…
….Hanging Out at the Seed Farm in Mississippi with some friends…
Liatris pychnostachya with Bumble Bee
blue Bee or Fly on picnanthemum muticum
a bumbling Monarda
Skippers abound in the seed fields
Grow prairie and see insects you’ve never seen before!
they don’t call it Goldenrod for nuthin’! Solidago odora
Pycnanthemum is a prairie rockstar
working a lot on seed these days – summertime is the time to get it!
asclepia obovate under the scope
even non-flowering herbaceous flora is impressive and beautiful, as in Carex lupulina

Get out there and get you a handful of fun (seed)!!!
