Wildflower Wednesday: Bluebells!
Last Saturday, I went down to Walker Creek where I found Virginia Bluebells
lining both sides of the creek. This annual trek to photograph them
always reminds me of my parents' farm. We spent many weekends and all
summer there when I was a child and then visits until I was 30. I
remember how the bluebells lined the creek there too.
Last month, I picked up 4 bags of trash along Walker Creek as part of a community cleanup day. I did this by myself as everyone else cleaned up along New River. The road borders the creek and so it is easy for folks to dump trash or litter without anyone seeing them. I was pleased to see that only a few pieces of trash appeared since my pickup. Next year, I hope to get the neighbors involved. Maybe we can make it a "Friends of Walker Creek" event.
