Media and Pollinators
Good update as usual. You hit the nail on the head with your observations on the propaganda we are being fed. Seems clear to me this latest go round from Charlottesville to the destruction of historical monuments is an engineered ruse and somebody must be really worried so they have to construct a meme to lead people by the nose.
Great plantings you have. I planted zinnia's for the first time this year. The butterflies absolutely love them and I have seen butterflies in my yard like I saw when I was a little kid. So maybe there is still hope, "plant it and they will come". I'm saving the seed heads of the the dried plants so I can plant many more next year. Mason bees seem to like them also but they like a lot of of things and are great pollinators. Milkweed will also be on the list a well as a few other things. It is a small thing, but in my little corner of the world it is visibly helping these pollinating species to survive and hopefully thrive. It also makes me very happy and gives me a closeness with my God and this magnificent beautiful place he has created and given to us. Good luck and blessings to all.
