Wildflower article a lovely reminder

To the editor:

A few weeks ago I read with pleasure Julie Cartner’s marvelous piece on wildflowers titled “A Rose by any Other Name…”. I thoroughly identified with your description of the natural beauty of Queen Anne’s Lace, morning glories and trumpet vines growing along our country roads.  One of my favorites that was not mentioned includes the bright orange butterfly weed.  Given your obvious appreciation for flowers, wild or otherwise, I would like to extend an invitation to you to  join the Mocksville Garden Club.  Please visit us on Facebook.

Thank you for this lovely reminder of how wildflowers can be as beautiful as those that are cultivated.  I look forward to reading more of your articles.
