Both Belong Here


Cultivated
vs 
Wild




Both belong here.
There is no competition.  Not here.  Here, they co-exist.

By the way, if ever you need a great field guide to help identify wildflowers, I would highly recommend Newcomb's Wildflower Guide, by Lawrence Newcomb.

"Newcomb's Wildflower Guide: An Ingenious New Key System for Quick, Positive Field Identification of the Wildflowers, Flowering Shrubs and Vines of Northeastern and Northcentral."


And speaking of identification, last week when these pretty white bell-shaped flowers appeared on a plant that my son had given me, I knew just where to find out what they were.  I asked Judith!  Yes, our Judith.


Sharing with you and thanking Judith for hosting

Wild and cultivated definitely go together. Sometimes I'm surprised at what pops up in my garden, brought in by the wind or the birds. Beautiful flowers.
Isn't Judith just a great source of knowledge?

Donna said...

Isn't it great when we can coexist...I am just seeing red lilies popping up! Thanks for the Wildflower Guide recommendation.

Nina said...

Both have their charm ... Lovely that they can co-exist side by side!

Ann Thompson said...

cultivated or wild, I love them all. In the past if I wanted to know what a flower was I posted it on the blog. There's always someone out there who knows.

Debbie said...

beautiful, i love that bright orange color!!!!!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I agree! I love all of it. In fact, I prefer the natural lawns to the chemically treated ones! So do critters.

I would be lost without my Ontario Wildflower books and I also like the Forest Plant ID book. If all else fails, ask another gardener. :-) Glad I could be of help with your white bell flower.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday JP.
