At Wildflower Farm we have more than just flowers in the garden. Our native gardens provide supreme habitat and food for the local wildlife. We are always hosting a diversity of birds, butterflies, and the occasional amphibian or mammal (particularly Gardenis nativorous) .
Wildflower Farm Sightings
Eight Turkey Vultures sitting in a row on the barn roof.
The goldfinches are in full colour and making themselves quite at home. We’ve also noticed our resident bluebirds helping themselves to some tasty garden bugs.
Whooping Cranes were seen above the farm. At one point we thought they were going to land in our field of Little Blue Stem Grass but they caught a thermal and up they went. We could hear their distinctive whooping from quite a distance.
During our Mother’s Day Tea Party, Bruce snapped a photo of a lovely painted lady butterfly fluttering around in the pussy toes. The first one we’ve seen of the season.
Bruce caught a quick peak at a doe admiring our scree garden on Earth Day.
