Thank you Gail for inspiring all of my wildflower posts over this year and for all of your great work towards preserving native plants . . . through your own gardens and the brilliant articles on your blog, 
as well as, your contributions to the fabulous Beautiful Wildlife Gardens blog.
You are an inspiration to many and a gracious champion for native plants and wildlife. Congratulations on another year of informative posts for your creation 'Wildflower Wednesday.'
