    See the yellow kernels in the white sweet corn? This is why you do your best to isolate sweet corn types from other types of corn. This cost this exhibitor a ribbon at the state fair. Still looks yummy though! #sweetcorn #crosspollination #iowastatefair #nothingcompares #horticulture #kernelcolor

    I was amazed by the number of monarchs, bees, and other pollinators on the flowers at the Discovery Garden at the Iowa State Fair yesterday! Check it out! #monarchs #zinnia #horticulture #gardening #pollinators #iastatefair2018 #discoverygarden #displaygarden

    So many wonderful plants and not enough time! I enjoyed my visit to DC and I will bring back many pictures from the impressive gardens, memorials, and museums. And somehow I managed to attend several fantastic talks at the ASHS conference too! #ripleygarden @smithsoniangardens #horticulture #gardens #fountain #washingtonDC #ashs2018

    There are so many impressive plants in Washington DC Mall area, but few compare to the grandeur of the American Elms lining the sidewalks and streets! #ulmus #americanelm #allee #horticulture #dcmall #grandtrees
