This mound of flowers is a great way to add a little beauty to your landscape. It’s a simple thing, but it’s so good it’s worth the effort. It’s pretty simple and requires little thought and a little creativity.
This is a project from the Texas State Parks and Wildlife Department and is about a 1/2 acre mound of flowers found near the Humble Dam off-site to the south of Austin. The mound itself is a single or double cone shaped structure of plants, but the flowers are actually growing individually from the roots of the plants that live above ground. Each flower has a small hole on the top to allow water to get to them, but the flowers themselves are growing outside the hole.
That’s pretty neat and all, but the main reason we got this project was because the flower mound is located near a state park which has some beautiful native plants. It’s a great place to relax and get fresh air, and while we all like to think of ourselves as “green,” we also think it’s important to bring the environment in line with what we want our homes to look like.
The problem is that no one really knows how to do it. Every state and county in the US has its own laws on how and where native plants can be used, and in Texas we are basically stuck in the middle of a legal battle between the owners of the state park and the city of Austin. One of the main things that makes the Texas health flower mound so interesting is that it provides the perfect location to experiment with native plants.
The health flower mound is the perfect place to start, because it contains the perfect soil mix to grow a variety of native plants. We can see that some of the other factors affecting the plant mix are temperature, precipitation, and the location of the plants. These factors play into the mix so much we can’t really see it. So we can see some of the possible plant changes, but not all of them.
I like the idea of planting native plants here, but I dont know if I would use them as food. I would like to see some of the new plants, but I think I would only eat the ones that I have the chance to see. But then I think I would probably just eat the ones I would have seen.
I think we can all agree that these are delicious. But I dont know if I would eat them. I dont think I would eat them for any reason. But the food supply in texas is very limited, so I would just be eating those things that I could find.
Yes, this is a very common dilemma for many Texas homeowners. Of course I love the food we have to live with and love our food supply, but I have to wonder if it is worth the effort to plant these native plants. I feel like the beauty, freshness, and aroma of them would be lost in the process. I think I would probably just eat them and then eat them.
I actually like the idea of native plants. I think that the health benefits are pretty obvious when it comes to those who are already well, and I think the beauty and freshness of the plants are a bonus, too. If I were to plant a native plant, I would probably simply take it out of the ground and plant it in a container. Then I would just eat that plant for dinner.
I think native plants are definitely worth planting. But I think it’s a good idea to know what I’m getting into in order to select the best one for me. The health benefits of native plants are pretty obvious, but what about the aesthetic appeal? I think the texture of the foliage is a bonus, and I think a plant that is planted in a sandy soil would be easier to maintain.
