Garden as though you will live forever. - William Kent

Monarch larva on Asclepias speciosa

Sept. - 2016

Join the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. Plant with pollinators in mind.

“We were very fortunate (and lucky!) to have a Monarch butterfly visit our milkweed patch. We plant them for the beautiful native butterflies and other pollinators in our garden. This morning in the garden, we saw that the eggs have hatched into larvae. Now, we are hoping to see the larvae stages through to chrysalis and butterfly.”

Spring flowers for pollinators ~

The gardener is usually as happy to see them as the pollinators!

Hamamelis, Witch Hazel and Corylopsis, Winter Hazel are beautiful spring bloomers for early pollinators.

Spring blooming bulbs and the white blooms of Spirea thunbergii are visited by many types of pollinators.

Spring will be here before we know it!

Hamamelis, Witch Hazel

On the first decent spring day, I get out in the garden and see what I can trim back and clean-up. Just a little tidying to get a jump on the winter-ravaged garden beds. This year, that day was Jan. 27th. I guess that isn’t really “spring” but it felt like it to me. And, once again, as I cut back this and that, I was greeted by those that would prefer I leave things be. And so I just sat on the grass and soaked up the vitamin D, and left things just as they were.

I usually see lots of Pacific Tree frogs but the little guy in my garden bed below looks more like a Northern Red-legged Frog. What do you think?
