When you arrive at the Eagles’ Nest, you’ll probably find fresh flowers on the table.
You never quite know what you might find in the bouquet. It’s all seasonal and depends upon what we find blooming or growing around the Nest. So, cedar, oregon grape, spruce sprigs, fern fronds, and local blooming flowers, both native and non-native, and even blooming herbs may find their way into the Nest bouquets.
We often think of flowers as “ornamental”, but look at the different magic of each one, the subtlety of natives vs. those on chemical steroids. And let their beauty always remind your heart that the “economics” of nature is one of outrageous, extravagant giving – to the bees, hummingbirds, and other creatures that improve their success in reproduction; and to us peoples to love them and give room for their existence.
