Went to the Virginia Living Museum Native Plant Sale even though it was thundering! What dedication! It was wonderful and had a good turnout. A few of the plants that were favorites were milkweed and butterflyweed because people want to feed/grow the butterflies. I hovered around the Phlox again because I have a dream of one day having a theme garden. Phlox, Cosmos, etc.
I enjoyed looking at the not so plant like things such as the carved animals. The eagle held up the caution tape to keep us from going near the shed. I didn’t go inside the museum to witness the Earth Day festivities with the animals though. I don’t stay away from my eye drops for too long while I heal from Lasik.
They had a great handout on the various plants that they sell and I scanned it for all to read. I apologize for the crinkle and bleeding text. It was raining and it’s very hard to take photos while holding an umbrella and keep a piece of paper dry at the same time. I recommend that if you’re interested in picking up native plants and finding out more about them that you should go to there next weekend. It’s free to check out and the prices are comparable to local nurseries.
