More beauty...








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.

(Click on the pictures to enlarge.)
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.
So cute!

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.

Close up of a bee on the flower of the privet.

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

Your garden is so welcoming . . . I love all the variety of flowers and plants. Old fashioned cottage gardens are among my favorite . . . you've put a lot of work into creating this and you should be proud of how pretty and charming it is :)
