Some scenes from a Pollinator Garden

Today, I take you to the Sparrow Field Pollinator Garden on Skidaway Island, GA. Every Friday morning, a small group of women and a couple of men work to keep this area along a golf course a beautiful berm of pollinator plants and teaching tool. We are approaching a very challenging season due to heat and humidity and fire ants…but onward in the garden.

Though they’ve been bitten by fire ants, stung by ground wasps, frightened by venomous snakes and thwarted by greedy deer, the work goes on to show Island residents the native plants that will improve our ecosystem. This tenacious group of volunteers are making a difference.

P.S.

In case you like to follow along with Six on Saturday http://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com here are some of my six for you on Sunday.

As we head into summer, I hope your connection to your garden brings you peaceful and enlightening moments.
