Quarterly free admission days and a recently established shuttle system throughout the Garden are two significant ways that invite the entire community to enjoy the local treasure that is the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

Texas weather is notorious for changing rapidly and going to extremes. What's your best bet for a home landscape that can withstand those extremes? Resilient Texas native plants that are already adapted to Texas' extremes can help keep your yard looking great — whatever the forecast says.

She and her husband own and operate Clark Haven, a wildlife preserve and custom wildflower seed business in Cooke County. Her favorite things to do are leading discovery walks in local natural areas, and finding and photographing interesting plants.
