The Pollinator Friendly Garden

Creekside Chat

 Since moving to  San Diego five years ago, I ripped out my lawn, and  put out the welcome sign for critters by planting native plants. My garden and the  critters that share it with me are even more important to me these home bound days.  The black sage is blooming out with digger bees (white face males ) on zoom patrol.  The chunky little  black tail bumbles finished with the arctostaphylos are on to the sage and ceanothusBuckwheats  are on the way.   Several other small native bees are  seen on the annual assortment of the usual  miscellaneous  poppies, clarkias, goldfields. Butterflies,  hover flies,wasps are showing up.  And then , there's the unexpected drama of witnessing a lizard catch and eat at honey bee.  Who knew?    So much life in my small urban lot.  Making a home for these creatures by planting these local native plants and leaving areas undisturbed was meant as a gift to them, but it's turning out to be an immeasurable gift to me.
