Texas is a great state to live in! I just returned from a trip to Big Bend National Park and the Chisos Mountain Region. The color from the wild flowers blooming beside the back country roads was amazing. The drive into the Chisos Mountains and Big Bend National Park was filled with color from all the cacti blooming.
This Hedgehog cactus and others were in full bloom and other varieties of cacti were about to bloom as well. What a Great trip!

The Texas Nursery Landscape Association (TNLA) had a meeting at the Fort Worth Zoo a few weeks ago. The meeting was on the organic maintenance of the plants in the animal enclosure and grounds. There are no chemicals used by the landscaping crews in and around the zoo grounds. The next time you visit the nationally acclaimed Fort Worth Zoo look around at the plants and know the animals and your family are safe from chemicals.
