Annual Titan Wildflower Stomp

5 Dec

Could this be a picture of a stampede to a candy sale, a toy clearance, a cartoon marathon?  

Nope, it’s just the River Place Titans enjoying  their annual Wildflower Stomp on October 24th.We are loving all of this rain, not only because it helps relieve the severe drought we are in but because we have some lovely little seeds that have just been waiting for rain. The Titans enjoyed their annual Wildflower Stomp on October 24th.  Fall is the perfect time to get those wildflower seeds in the ground so they begin germinating and be ready to bloom in the spring.  

 Thanks to a generous grant from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, we received a grant to help pay for our seeds.  We picked a mix this year that has lots of variety with perennials (multiple year bloomers) and annuals (one year bloomer).  The mix includes:  Indian Blanket
Greenthread
Plains Coreopsis
Clasping Coneflower
Golden-Wave
Purple Coneflower
Scarlet Sage
Lemon Mint
Purple Prairie Clover
Cutleaf Daisy
Huisache Daisy
Drummond Phlox
Black-Eyed Susan
Texas Yellow Star
Lanceleaf Coreopsis
Pink Evening Primrose
Mexican Hat
Bush Sunflower
Prairie Coneflower
Winecup



Students from Kinder through 5th came out and stomped, twisted and jumped to help those seeds in the ground.  Now we will let nature take her course and get the seeds started and hopefully see some beautiful colors come next spring.
