Our Favorite Links

We search the internet for information on plants and native wildflowers, along with our interests in attracting butterflies, birds and other wildlife to the garden, etc. As we find links that are useful to us, we will place them here on our Favorite Links page. We hope you find them as informative and fun as we have.
