Worker Bees

 The garden is buzzing with volunteers; the people variety and the bug variety. The bees are pollinating, the ladybugs are keeping our aphid population at bay, and the butterflies dazzle.

  1. Your garden is looking lovely – tidy and organised. I’m crushing on your colour wheel and your band of helpers.

    It’s heading into autumn here in New Zealand so of course I’ve just completed an online late order for ranunculus, hyacinths and freesias in anticipation of the end of a winter that’s not started yet. You’ll keep me inspired through the colder months ahead. Best wishes to the team.

    • Gardening crosses all kinds of borders, doesn’t it. We are honored that you draw inspiration from our little garden — our goals are to educate and encourage gardening wherever you may live. I hear that New Zealand is sweet as! (My Kiwi friends helped with the final phrase) : )
