Today Josh and I had the pleasure of meeting native plants expert, Frank Skelton and touring his 3(!) beautiful gardens. Complete with suspenders, tool belt, and knee pads sewn into his Carhartts, Frank is a treasure not to be missed. His extensive and intimate knowledge of plant biology and ecosystems is astounding, and his passion is infectious. We are excited to accept his donation of a native clematis for our entry gate and look forward to continuing the conversation as we work towards enhancing our native flora and encouraging a diverse biotic community.
I would have taken a photo to mark the day, but I was too entranced by Frank's stories and anecdotes... :)
