I just had to add a post about what’s happening out in the “prairie” area. The white flowers are mountain mint. They are always covered with a fascinating assortment of pollinator bees, wasps, and other beneficial insects. I love to stop and watch them work.
Also blooming, despite weeks of drought, are all these drifts of wildflowers. Many are from native seeds I broadcast throughout the field last fall, finally germinating. It gives me a sense of accomplishment, even if I’m not here to see the culmination. For now, I’m just hoping for some rain relief.
Also exciting, I saw my first hummingbird of the season hovering over the cutting garden, which is really exploding with flowers. As usual, I couldn’t catch it in the act, but I know all the work I did is paying off.
