Over the last few years I have worked on removing all invasive plants and most non-native plants in my small yard and have replaced them with plants native to my region. The Indian Pink is one of my favorite spring blooming natives. This photo was taken with a Canon Rebel T6. What makes this photo special to me is that many people don’t realize how beautiful and unusual some of our native plants are, and I have actually been able to encourage friends who have seen this photo to plant native to help support our wildlife as well.
