Spring has arrived! I have been counting the days! The garden got a complete refresh and I've cleared out some of the old plants and brought in some new ones to honor the new season. I've been trying to mostly stick to flowers that attract bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. It's not quite time yet for the garden centers to stock up on their butterfly friendly plants, so I'm trying to be patient. Here is how the garden is looking currently:
Canterbury Bells - Get these every year. Bees love them.
Ranunculus on the patio. I don't know that these flowers are particularly good for pollinators, as I have never seen any attracted to them, but they were so pretty that I got them just for show.
Brugmansia (Angel Trumpet blooming)
Ranunculus, pincushion flower, gerbera daisy
Cosmos and lavander
