GARDEN VIEWS

An inside glimpse of the gardens from our Instagram feed

...
once a snowflake fell
on my brow and i loved
it so much and i kissed
it and it was happy and called its cousins
and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
i reached to love them all
and i squeezed them and they became
a spring rain and i stood perfectly
still and was a flower

Going out? Don’t forget your hat...

Tell us how you’re enjoying this rare snow day in Central Texas! 

📸 Echinacea purpurea
The sky is the limit! What are your gardening, outdoor, conservation, wellness and community-care goals or affirmations for the year? What do you want to learn, do, explore or cultivate?

The days are getting longer and we're ready to tend the gardens of our minds with fresh classes in landscape design, botany, yoga & more. Join us to get started or continue on your natural-world learning journey. Register now for our upcoming virtual classes & programs (link in bio or Story or visit wildflower.org/learn)!

Bouncing into the new year with a little extra spring in your step? New goals for distance jogged/strolled/rolled in a day? Then you're going to need some rubber. 

But we're betting you've never heard of guayule (say “why-YOU-lee”), which also goes by the name “rubber plant.” As our natural rubber resources are threatened by climate change & clearcutting, this North American desert-dwelling native plant may be the resource that helps us rebound & keep on trucking.
