in my garden
I see evidence that we can live together
as long as we respect each other.
I recently planted the last of my annuals:
beautiful yellow and orange Marigolds
red and white Geraniums
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
At the end of a few hours my flower bed looked beautiful
and the important work of insects continued...
