I love seeing wildflowers when I'm driving about; it makes me so happy to see that there are still a lot of wild plants left.I love my goldenrod. It grows wild in the unmowed areas on my property and attracts pollinators by the bucketload. Eventually the trees we planted in those areas may grow to overshadow my wildflowers, but I hope goldenrod and others will still adorn the edges of these reforested spaces.

My swamp milkweed is another one of my favorite plants, it attracts so many pollinators! I hope I will get some monarch caterpillars on it someday!
I have been scattering my swamp milkweed seedpods around the wooded road areas so hopefully they will grow wild there; it's better than just dead leaves!
