The Need for Native Plants and Wildflowers

Loss of songbird habitat, fewer Monarch butterflies, mysterious bee deaths … just a few of the reports that seem to be appearing in the news more and more frequently these days. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it’s possible to do something to restore natural habitats for birds, bees, butterflies, and other wildlife in our own landscapes and gardens.

I liked this article! I agree that each of us can help perhaps in small ways. I shall come back to this article when planning for next seasons planting. Thanks.

That makes me feel good, Caroline. You are so right about the small ways we can all make a difference. A little here and there ... if everyone did that it would make a huge difference.

Every little bit helps. Nice article Tee. Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
