“May your life be like a wildflower, growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.”
Native American Proverb
What is a wildflower?
Wildflowers are said to grow naturally rather than cultivated.
It’s not intentionally seeded or planted.
I am not sure of the name of the above flower, but I guess it belongs to the dandelions category.
Some confusion as to dandelions is wildflowers, weeds or in between.
Why wildflowers matter?
✔Wildflowers support insects.
✔Wildflowers attract pollinators( bees etc) and more the pollinator population better for the humans because many of our fruits, vegetable and nuts depend on the pollinators.
✔Some of the wildflowers contain compounds that are used in drugs for treating certain diseases.
✔Wildflowers are said to keep the soil healthy with the roots of the plants spreading and stabilising the soil.
✔And wildflowers are so colourful, just by watching them one is at peace with joy and happiness.
Weeds/Wildflowers is a confusing subject to me.
