Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

QUESTION:

ANSWER:

Well, Mr. Smarty Plants usually deals with actual living plants, but was willing to try googling "bluebonnet stencils" and came up with several promising sites for stencils of bluebonnets that could be used with furniture.  The most promising turned out to be Stencils by Nancy but there are others that popped up using the above search terms.
