Wild, Free, Spontaneious
"For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!" ~ Edward Abbey
Weekly during the Summer in the tall pines of the Tonto National Forest, new wildflower blooms abound unabashed in both frequency and mass Its an ebb and flow of one species rising and then falling to the next, as they take turns soaking up the forest and providing a continued and varied harvest, for a non-stop season of pollination.
