Nuts for Natives: Thank You!

Gardens & Gratitude

As I cut these flowers last week, I was thinking about your kind messages, your willingness to take the time to pass along informative suggestions and your comments. These inspire me every day. You help us all learn more and make it easier for more people to garden with native plants. I was thinking I wish I could send you these flowers. Perhaps one day, a drone delivery!

I am especially grateful to those of you who allow your gardens to be shared on Nuts for Natives. Gardens can be very private spaces and allowing us to visit is a privilege. This years’ gardens were simply amazing. Jamie Wiesner's front yard garden is inspirational on every single front. In case you missed it: Chesapeake Gardens: Growing Native in Maryland. Tanya Ray's Baltimore County garden shows us how a pro gets started: Making a Garden Your Own: Top Tips for Getting Started.

On this holiday, I wish everyone a moment to savor a bit of the outdoors and a peaceful day.

With enormous appreciation for you,



We want you to be as excited about planting Chesapeake natives as we are. “Plant This or That” gives you a native alternative to popular plants. Other posts highlight really fabulous fauna native to the Chesapeake.
