My garden attracts a lot of bees...
This is a good thing, 'cause without them,
we would have no food...
The bees pollinate the flowers
to grow our crops,
a good reason not to use pesticides
or herbicides in the garden.
I am trying a more natural approach
to insect and weed control.

|My jungle on the left side |
of the Hastings St. side garden...
|The only lily I have left this year. |
The bunnies ate all the others.
Note the tall cage that I put
around it to save it!
|A double Coreopsis. See the little bee on it. |
|A little red, white, and blue touch here.|
|I kept some Milkweed for the butterfly larvae. |
They are for the Monarch butterflies.
|A daylily...I don't know the name of it!|
It sure is pretty and very large!
|My Privet that I've trained into a tree.|
The bees love it when it blooms,
they are all over it!
It smells so sweet.

So this is a small tour of my garden today,
it changes daily.
Stay tuned for more to come!
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
