What a Great Day

Today the Oklahoma Native Plant Society had an event at the Tulsa Garden Center. We bought one of these bird feeders made from a recycled tire. Here's the resource: Clear Creek Farm and Gardens: no website. Loretta and Kirk Bowers, P.O. Box 89, Peggs, OK 74452. (918) 598-3782. Ccreek@chouteautel.com. Native plant nursery featuring eastern Oklahoma trees, shrubs and perennials; butterfly gardens; prairie fields; undisturbed woodlands; springs. More than 125 species of trees, shrubs, vines and perennials are planted in wildlife gardens, butterfly nectar gardens, butterfly host plant gardens, herb and rose gardens, and vegetable gardens.

On their display table, there was this very nice planter full of vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Wild Things Nursery was at the event with a table full of plants. Over the past few years, I have bought several plants for the shade, for the sun, for the butterflies. They have all thrived and continued to come back year after year so today I bought a few more. I told Marilyn Stewart from Wild Things that I'm glad I didn't know they would be there or I would have made a list in advance.
Contact information is 405-382-8540 or e-mail us at wtnursery@yahoo.com
Here's the scoop on Wild Things from their site.
Our goal and mission is to produce plants native to Oklahoma and beneficial to wildlife. We have a special emphasis on plants which support butterflies, moths and other pollinators.
We are a small Oklahoma nursery and because we do not have a brick and mortar location, we sell through farmer’s markets and herb shows. Where they will be this year is on their site - the green link above.

So, neither of these businesses have a location and sell when and where you find them.
Sustainable Oklahoma's site identifies dozens of resources of interest of nature lovers.
To top off the day, it was 70 when we came home so all the plants we bought went in the ground.
That's a great day.
