Birds, Butterflys, Bugs and Bumble Bees are the garden’s constant companions.

All perform their definite roles in creating the beauty of a garden. Some of the birds were seen to be assisting in pollinating blossoms and keeping check on the insects. I have noticed a rust capped sparrow floating from a branch of the Sun Burst Locust, in pursuit of a white moth. Wrens and Pine Siskin investigate the raisied bed gardens space for insects, grubs and slugs. There are four bird feeding stations and a water bird bath which we keep supplied with food and drinkable water throughtout the four seasons. I think that bird families with this year’s hatch of babies, will return next year and with each year more and more will be visiting the yard and neighborhood.
