Sustainable Living in all its incarnations is a popular topic on the Internet.
There are hundreds of sites that cover many of the topics I blog about, but some are, of course, better than others. Below are a few of the sites I visit when I need more information, want an expert opinion, or am looking to be inspired. I’ll be updating regularly.

I go to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center site for everything. It is the best out there!
Texas has the best wildflowers of all. That’s where I started learning about native plants. I do miss all the beautiful plants—but not the snakes and scorpions.
