This time of year the road sides of Vermont are blooming. Literally. I feel like I see a lot more wildflowers here than anywhere else. I travel to other states in the summer and their roadsides are mostly grass*. I feel badly for them. Where do they go to pick wildflowers?


*Possibly I should get off the interstate before jumping to conclusions. But even in VT (and NH) the interstates are planted with wildflowers…

  1. Lady Bird Johnson gets credit for the flowers on the interstates . . .

  2. Michigan has patches where the medians of the interstate have been planted with wildflowers – looks like someone just takes a big packet of that “mixed wildflower seed” stuff and strews it around! Really lovely. And there are Queen Anne’s Lace and blue cornflowers everywhere, especially along the country roads :-)
