The Tin Can Cabin - Part I - Who Needs a Garden?


Marsh Mallow
We recently purchased a used Jayco travel trailer and took it to Swan Lake at Two Rivers Natural Wildlife Refuge in Illinois.  I'm going to give it a fabulous makeover and stay there as often as I possibly can. The wildflowers are absolutely beautiful so I have no need to plant a garden.
Orange Jewel Weed
 This Orange Jewel Weed looks like a little orchid - gorgeous!

Partridge Pea
 The Partridge Pea is an extremely beneficial plant for the quail, who eat the seeds.

Verbena-Like Wild Flower & Bee
I tried to capture the honey bee on this verbena-like plant that I could not find the name for. The bees call it yummy.

Yellow Wildflower
This beautiful yellow flower is either in the daisy or sunflower family, I'm not sure. If someone out there knows - please tell me.

I am thoroughly enjoying my new garden, planted by Mother Nature and no weeding necessary!

Thank you for visiting and visit my Pinterest page for lots of ideas on how to remodel a travel trailer.
