20140712c-9796Pollinating insects have been in the news a lot lately, which is both good and bad news.
Good news for the awareness, bad news for the reasons why, that of declining populations.

This image is of a flower bed we have decided to turn into a pollinator garden.
Some of the features will be more pollinator friendly plants, full sun morning and afternoon, a newly created concrete water bath, and some windbreaks in the form of 1’x8′ latticework that will go up on the chainlink fenceline.

Our original butterfly garden is also receiving some enhancements and upgrades in the form of more plants and another concrete waterbath.
