I'd meant all along to post about Native Plant Week (October 19-25, 2014) but when I first noticed it was coming up, it was early September and honestly, there was too much work to be done in the garden beds themselves before it would be proper to stop and write about anything on the garden blog.

Happy Native Plant Week all! Here's hoping if you aren't already enjoying the additional benefits of going native, that this will be the week that changes all that.
