Louise Butler gave away her lawnmower years ago. She could do that – because over time – Butler slowly replaced all of the grass near her South Hill home with a patchwork of various wildflowers and perennials. February to October, blooms emerge in various hues with more flowers than she can name. A Spokane Symphony cello player, Butler enjoys tinkering outside to see the daily changes.
