During their visit we got found a few good leaves yet of some romaine lettuce and an onion for our burgers. We even talked some of the grandparents into trying a few Borage flowers and watched the honeybees work.
Finally, we finished up the weekend with a trip to one of our great local parks. Wildwood Park in Clive has a very nice patch of prairie wildflowers along the Greenbelt Trail. Coneflowers, daisies, milkweed and more are included for a nice feeding area for pollinators for all kinds.
I hope you had a festive and patriotic weekend, too!
