LOUISIANA'S ANSWER TO WILDFLOWER MEADOWS!
The wildflowers in Washington were truly beautiful. We also grow wildflowers here in Louisiana The only thing is that in the long hot days of August-it has literally gotten TOO hot for many of the plants and the long dry days take their toll also. We do have another growing season here in Louisiana that we seem to have perfect conditions for currently. I live in the deep woods with the forest floor thick with the thatch which has accumulated over the years. The past couple of weeks have produced summer thundershowers which result in a sauna like atmosphere. Perfect conditions for the beautiful mushrooms to pop through the deep carpet. Who knew that fungi could be quite so beautiful!
