Several years ago Mary Cooper convinced her friends in the Horticulture Club that they should get permission from the administration to clean up an abused wood lot and turn it into a wildflower park. The administration accepted the idea and even provided an attractive entry and some benches. After a significant volunteer effort, the Wildflower Woods has become a jewel of Bristol Village.
Spring is a special time when residents make frequent trips to the Wildflower Woods to see the promise and progress of the many varieties of wildflowers now found there. Mary and her friends have planted a large variety of both common and rare wildflowers that are a delight to the senses. From the Aconite and Snowdrops that start blooming in February, to the Asters and Rudbeckia that bloom through the fall frost, the Wildflower Woods is a favorite spot for Bristol Village residents and visitors.
