Look to the ditches, to the wildflowers, to the bee condos of the world. The pollinators will find the plants.

Can’t plant a flower garden? No worries. Leave the weeds. Joepye weed, wild yarrow,  thistles to do what they do. The bees will do the rest.

Visit in the fullness of day, watch them play and nap and be the good relatives.  As they take care of us, let us take care of them… that’s what family does.
