Bee and Butterfly Puddles

Bees and butterflies need water, too, but most birdbaths are too deep for them. Here's an idea for a safe place in your garden for them to drink.

I am constantly looking out the window and going to put on my garden shoes to go save a bee or insect that is drowning in the birdbath in Sheri's healing flower garden!

I see the tiny circles of water in the birdbath and I say..oh no an insect is drowning in the bird bath!

that is what I need to do, go out today and make that a puddle water area for butterflys and bees and such as catmint suggested in her article ....

instead of deeper water for the birds in the birdbath...

the birds have a birdbath on the other side of the house and yard.

I always wonder what the drowning insect thinks when it sees a giant person
leaning over to scoop the insect into my hands and deliver it to a dry area
of the flower bed to gather its strength back and enable it to fly off to enjoy the rest of its life!

That is a beautiful bird bath, Sheri!
