We Have August Company!

Ha! I just heard on the radio that Michelle Obama has installed a pollinator's garden at the White House. We have had our pollination garden for two years now, it was installed by Luke Zebrowski and Troop 33. Recently our pollination area received some loving attention from several volunteers, and we are planning a trip next week to the California Native Nursery in the L.A. Veteran's Center Complex. How's that for being on the cutting edge.

Here is a link to a very interesting overview of bees. There are over 20,000 species of bees in the world; they date from Cretaceous times, and only half of them (females) are even capable of stinging. Check out the link:

Please remember to Shop at the B.H. Whole Foods on Saturday, April 5th. 5% of their net profits for the day will benefit our little garden! Thank you Whole Foods. Also, don't forget to attend the ribbon cutting event on Sunday, April 13th, 2:00 p.m. The Mayor will be cutting the ribbon, lots of treats from Whole Foods, and guess what: my niece Charlotte will be selling my own kumquat marmalade and candy, 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the garden.

See you soon! Garden Girl Lives Here....
