“My family grew up on the Easthill and I have always loved the structure of homes I rode by on my bike and went trick or treating to on Halloween. But it wasn’t until I was helping my ‘then future husband” purchase a home that I noticed how similar many of the Easthill homes look. In fact, you could say some looked exactly the same?

Blooming Prairie at Your Doorstep
July 1, 2019 – 9:20 pm | No Comment

Don’t let another day go by without viewing the splendor of wild/native flowers in the two-acre prairie at the east end of Boyd Park. This is a favorite time for many due to the complementary display of the golden Coreopsis next to the blue of the Spiderwort that was recently at its peak (by mid- afternoon the Spiderwort will close up for the day). Also see Goat’s Beard, the prehistoric look of False Indigo, Daisies, Beard Tongue, Golden Alexander. Then, each week presents new flowers and grasses, e.g., Lead Plant, Compass Plant, Bee Balm, dozens more.

These plants support an array of butterflies, bees, and other insects. Know that last summer the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee was sighted at our prairie several times. This bee is on the federal endangered species list.

Neighbors seeded the prairie in 2003 and it continues to be maintained and improved by a small group of East Side Hill Neighbors. Contact our Steering Committee President at president@eastsidehill.com for more information or how you can foster this oasis.
