In late 2014 we removed the front lawn of our urban home and replaced it with 1000 sqft of native and non-native plants. We have tried to create a pollinator and butterfly friendly garden. Thanks to BG I'm able to document the different native bee species that are visiting this year. I hope to share this information with readers of my gardening blog and neighbors. The amount of insect life in my garden only 12 months after planting is simply amazing. Thanks BG!
