September garden

butterfly-on-flowerThe bees are still buzzing around the flowers in the garden.Love to know that they are such great pollinators. I have not treated my lawns or sprayed in the gardens which keeps the insects are moving around in a healthy manner.  Am sad not to see many butterflies. Just today , September 3, I saw my first monarch. They are on the verge of extinction so the national news said. How sad.  There can be several reasons and they are all environmental.  We all must take better care.
