The Maple Hill Hop 118



Maple Hill Hop


Welcome to 
The Maple Hill Hop.
This is a hop for folks who love the outdoors.
Feel free to post about anything that's going on
OUTSIDE
in your neck of the woods,
no matter the season.
(Please share only outdoor posts.)

With our unusually warm winter,
we decided to host a plant giveaway.
We do this a few times a year,
and it was the perfect time to share the wealth.
Folks are asked to bring their own shovel, 
and a container for the plants they choose.
This time, we also requested some canned food for our local
Meals on Wheels program.
Everyone wins!
Here are some of the lovelies that found new homes:


lemongrass


African Iris


Flax lily


Native salvia


Bulbine



Bulbine bloom


Crape Myrtle

All of our giveaways are either native or Florida-friendly,
meaning that the new owners will be able to enjoy their beauty
without a lot of work.
(You can search our plant profiles for these and other Florida-friendly plants using the search engine or our tab under the header.)
It feels good knowing that we are encouraging new gardeners
while supporting more experienced  ones.
We still have plenty of plants for our local pollinators to employ.
God's bounty never ceases.








What's going on outside where you are?
Let's HOP!
