About Momma Nature™

Nature Preservation is my history and a major reason I am called Momma Nature™."

T.V. shows have been filmed in my gardens in GA. This You Tube video was shot a few years ago by my friend Ryan Bousquet. He is now in the Navy and I am most grateful to him for the many gifts he shared with me. He also wrote original music for a t.v. show I filmed at Penny McHenry's lovely Hydrangea Heaven. How very grateful I am for the many friends who have encouraged and supported me over the years.

Swamp Mallow

Growing over 12' high in years where there is ample rain, this wondrous flower draws hummingbirds and more insects that I can count. Taken in front of Fern Leaf Fennel foliage in Momma Natures Garden.

Bloodroot

Momma Nature™ has always loved this delicate native which she began saving in native plant saves operated by the North Carolina Wildflower Preservation Society in Greensboro, NC when she was just seven years old.
The United States FDA has approved the inclusion of sanguinarine (a chemical found in Bloodroot) in toothpastes as an antibacterial or anti-plaque agent. Native Americans used the root for dyes and medicinals but I'll only take pictures of their beauty.
