Green roof visit

This past weekend, we went up to the green  roof for the first time in a few weeks; weather conditions were not favorable until recently. The green roof looked very much like an actual prairie; there were lots of grasses as well as some flowers and other ground cover plants.

Notice the storm clouds in the upper left
Thankfully it didn't rain while we were up there. In late fall or winter (November-January) we will go in and cut back everything and add some fertilizer, and then seed all beds. The native flower mix has worked well in the past, so it will probably be the main mix that we use, in addition to some other flowers.
