Creating a Buzz in Your Gardens.
Not a quiet moment all season! The bees and butterflies seem to love all the new plantings. Of course we can't brag without telling you what there is. We have blue vervain, which seems to like to sow itself readily, as well as coneflowers, liatris, peonies, bergamont, thistle, bachelors buttons, weigla, black eyed susans, creeping thyme, false spirea, sweet cecily, and more. The yard is alive with so many pollinators I could likely count six species of bees at any one time. It's interesting that the one pictured above is very small. Not the typical large bumblebee.
With school around the corner and the gardening season heading into fall it's nice to note all the activity and life continuing in the great outdoors.
