Plant Flowers


KL at Beautiful Boonton let me use this image from her blog. I thought it was a good follow up to my hives for humanity post. We can all plant flowers somewhere. A pot by an open window is all it takes. Casa Mariposa reminded me to say organic please. Chemicals are part of the problem.

    1. I think I'm going to see if I can get a bumper sticker made. Meanwhile I've devoured the book you recommended on native plants and have a good list.

  3. I can't wait for spring to get into my flower gardens, but it will be awhile yet. We have snow on the ground and it's going to be 0 degrees tonight. I love the bee image!

  4. It's vital to not only plant flowers but to grow them organically so we don't poison the very creatures we're trying to save. :o) I have three flats of lavender seeds in my basement "greenhouse" just waiting for summer!

  5. I have lots of flowers in my garden some are even blooming now. I think the most important thing is not to use pesticides no garden has to be weed free it's all part of the life of a garden.

  6. We grow organically. The statistics re pesticides are alarming.

  7. Well, of course I so agree with this message, Susan! If everyone planted for bees in the garden or even placed a few pots outside for them it would help reverse their decline and help them to thrive again.
