You know that feeling of satisfaction that comes with realizing a dream? I'm riding that wave this morning.
You see, since moving to our homestead, we've had a dream of adding vast amounts of native wildflowers to the landscape - focusing on varieties that are beneficial to honeybees & other native pollinators. This spring we got around to building several massive beds, and we've been watching excitedly each week as the seeds germinated, and slowly, but surely plants & buds began appearing.
For the last few weeks, a few flowers have been opening here & there, and always, there are bees within sight of each bloom. Well, the field out by the gravel road is absolutely bursting with thousands of blooms. We all walked out this morning to take in the sight. There are bees everywhere. In fact you can hear the buzzing from some distance away.
Next year I think we'll go ahead and seed the full length of our 300ft "front yard" fence.
More flowers. Must have more flowers!
