Thankful Garden Thursday


Snowball here today with our garden post.  We are grateful that our yard is full of lovely flowers which draw bees and butterflies and hummingbirds!  Bees are so important to our food system - no bees, no food.  Honey bees are in serious decline right now.  We use only organic fertilizer and no pesticides to protect all the bees and wildlife.

We are thankful that the previous owners of our land were landscapers and gardeners - so much of what we have now in the yard was planted and tended to by them

P.S. Mom has allergy eyes and can't see very well - blurry and runny.  She is going to the Dr. this morning and will be by to visit later.

The previous owner of my human's first house was a musician who brought back all sorts of plants from his travels, so she inherited an awesome, wild garden. Sadly, it hasn't happened for her in the subsequent two houses.

We get a bee or two visit occasionally but we aren't sure what kind of bee they are. We just know to not whap them!

these flowers are totally stunning! I do a gratitude list every day. And I know what you mean about the bees - very endangered now.
