Peaceful Coexistence - Another Lesson From My Yard

Busy Airspace

Every day
in my garden 
I see evidence that we can live together
in peace
as long as we respect each other.

I recently planted the last of my annuals: 
beautiful yellow and orange Marigolds
red and white Geraniums
pink Begonias. 

I timed the planting in specific areas around the work of bees and butterflies. 
When bees were busily working among the Lavender, 
I planted around Cone Flowers and Black-eyed Susans.  
When they were ready
we'd switch places
working in concert 
without conflict.  

At the end of a few hours my flower bed looked beautiful 
and the important work of insects continued...
