“As for marigolds, poppies, hollyhocks, and valorous sunflowers, we shall never have a garden without them, both for their own sake, and for the sake of old-fashioned folks, who used to love them.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher
I couldn’t agree more, wouldn’t you? A garden isn’t complete without cheery sunflowers and happy hollyhocks. Not only do they invoke nostalgia but these graceful and majestic beauties also seem bring a warmth and happiness to gardens…. and beneficials!
Our parkway is where we plant this “beneficial border” of assorted flowers. Just walk on the sidewalk in front our house and peer into the wildflower jumble and you will spot loads of little ladybugs and bees a -plenty.
What’s your favorite garden flower?
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
