Bird Bath Idea

How cute is this birdbath! It’s shallow enough the small birds can use it, it has running water so the mosquitoes won’t breed in it, and the birds will love washing off in the sprays of water from the pipe.

I think this is going to be the next project for my personal garden. I’ll let you know how it goes! Let me know if you want me to make one for your garden!

Bee Hotel!

Look at how cute these ideas are for building bee hotels to keep the beneficial bugs in your garden! Between a bee hotel, plants for nectar and pollen, and a bee water feature, the beneficial pollinators will never want to leave your garden!

Pollinators!

Two cool things I saw today getting nectar from the Salvia in my garden: a female carpenter bee and a Giant Swallowtail butterfly (Papilio cresphontes). They’re both so beautiful!

Do you have enough nectar and host plants for the pollinators in your garden? If not, butterfly and hummingbird attracting gardens are one of my specialties, so call me. 386-310-9969, and I’ll create one for you!
