    If the parchment paper is larger than the iron, work in sections by lifting the iron up and then setting it back down on the next part that needs to be ironed. Please don't zone out if weddings aren't your thing — cut flowers can lift any summer party or knees up, and just plonking a home-grown vase's worth on your desk can be hugely uplifting. This is totally up to you and what you want to use the flowers for. Humans carry and drink water as needed, but the wildflowers grow and bloom only until they dry out or late-spring heat arrives, leaving seeds scattered on the desert floor to produce the next generation.

    For plants to continue growing, rainstorms must come at evenly-spaced intervals throughout the winter and spring. The elder plant grows quickly in the wild, often dominating its stretch of hedgerow. You could arrange them from largest to smallest, in rows, or without any order at all. The Ragged-Robin favours boggy soil.

    Humans carry and drink water as needed, but the wildflowers grow and bloom only until they dry out or late-spring heat arrives, leaving seeds scattered on the desert floor to produce the next generation. The flowers have featured in many a traditional Irish song or poem. Desert gold and sand verbena bloom on the valley floor. In some parklands, I find clusters of these lovely little flowers spread out over lawns from which they will disappear with the first mowing.

They may not look like they are growing, but below the surface a strong root system is being built. In swampy areas—I find them along the boardwalk that runs parallel to Hopkins Road in Amherst—you will find the coiled purple cloaks botanists call them spathes of skunk cabbage.

Bittercress will pop up in all the same places you might find chickweed, but generally germinates just a little later. Now, as he raises his head and withdraws it from the nectary, he must rub it against the pollen-laden anther above, and some of the pollen necessarily falls on the visitor Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper has compiled a guide to native plants that contains some plants that thrive in the wild as well as in cultivated gardens.

These blazing blossoms set hillsides ablaze in both winter and summer. Plug in the iron and switch the setting to the lowest, driest heat setting available. Many plants retain their shape and color when air-dried naturally. The advantage was a much more professional regeneration of the molecular sieves.

For plants to continue growing, rainstorms must come at evenly-spaced intervals throughout the winter and spring. Groups of them stand a foot high with their deeply divided leaves spreading umbrella-like over single or paired stems.

Early spring is a great time to harvest dandelion roots, before they've transferred all of their stored sugary energy up into new vegetative growth. To learn everything you need to know to begin foraging safely, sustainably, and confidently, check out my book here.

Mind the thorns! Harvesting elderberries? The elder plant grows quickly in the wild, often dominating its stretch of hedgerow. The entire dandelion plant is edible, from flower to leaf to root.

Hairy Bittercress Bittercress Cardamine hirsuta may not look like much, but it packs a peppery kick that's tough to beat this time of year.

Of course, the first wildflower of the season has been up since mid-winter. Most annuals are forgiving, though — once flowering, if you continue to cut them they'll carry on producing new blooms the only exclusion to this rule seemed to be the stocks which stubbornly produced zero sideshoots despite half of them being cut back a month before the wedding.

Use flowers you got from a florist or the grocery store, or pick your own from a garden. Learn more about hairy bittercress here. Because annuals aren't keen on root disturbance, I sowed into lengths of drainpipe and then, once germinated and thinned, also in the unheated greenhouse, I helped by my dad and other half hoofed them into pre-watered, pre-warmed growing bags.

The first relates to the milder spring temperatures brought to our region by climate change.

You will find today far fewer of these lovely flowers, because deer have cleared them from our wild areas. All that remain in many areas are species that deer reject: ferns. White-cream elder blossom is particularly noticeable in early summer.

The flowers are heavily scented. Later, elder trees hang heavy with clusters of dark berries. These berries are often harvested to make cordials, syrups, jams and even wine! The elder plant grows quickly in the wild, often dominating its stretch of hedgerow.
