Red, White, and Blooms

Red, White, and Blooms . . .

Today is the Fourth of July, 2011: Independence Day; the 235th birthday of the United States of America. Wildflowers of the West Village would like to celebrate the holiday with three local flowers, each sporting one of the nation’s three patriotic primary colors.

  1. I’m glad that you appreciate flowers, but it’s ironic that for the Fourth of July you picked three species that are not native to America (all come from Eurasia).
