Garden #20.5

My friend Elaine, who wrote a lovely profile of CPP in the Southside Pride, lives in the Longfellow neighborhood and has been working on her own pollinator garden.

I stopped by with some extra plants after Amy’s installation. Elaine has a shady garden with a lot of Virginia waterleaf. She donated a bunch for our next installations. She also has a whole bunch of asters thriving in her lawn, which surprised me because most asters are pretty tall when left alone. Perhaps more people should consider asters as another pollinator-friendly turf alternative.
