About this Monarch Project:
Flowers are my happy place but I’ve found that they’re even more enjoyable when pollinators and other wildlife are using them. We have beds in front and behind our house that offer a variety of native and horticultural versions of flowering plants. I’ve tried to include species that flower throughout the growing season and am working to limit chemicals that I unknowingly bring into the garden with new plants. We’ve been rewarded with a variety of pollinators ranging from, bees and wasps, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and even bats (although most of those are likely insectivorous). Its always a work in progress, but also always a labor of love.
