Image Statement: Springtime is simply glorious in Texas. Along highways and backroads everywhere, wildflowers bloom profusely. In the Hill Country the show opens with the famous bluebonnets and what blooms next depends on weather and rainfall making every spring performance uniquely colorful. It has inspired me to create my own home gardens with native plants which attract pollinators — bees, hummingbirds and the butterflies. Texas has the greatest butterfly diversity in the U.S. with over 400 species. My gardens feed wildlife which support the local ecosystem and, collectively, a healthier planet.
