Wildflower Wednesday; Phlox divaricata laphamii
This woodland phlox warms the cockles of my heart every spring! And it is spreading around in the flower beds (and in the back yard!!) Love!!
Now, I have just noticed the dandilion. He's free and very photogenic. You might want to know what I do with these fellows!
About 5 years ago, I began using black trash bags to put the weeds, clippings (things not going into my compost pile), etc., etc. I put them in a fairly sunny area (pretty much out of sight) and turn the bags over once in awhile. It doesn't take too long - a year or two? and I have a bag of "black gold - compost!" The seeds in there get cooked and become inactive. hurrah!
