Black-eyed Susan time!! ...

A wee pot created by the Potters Wasp. This pot is the casing where an egg would be laid, the pot capped, then left for the egg to develop into larva and then emerge as an adult wasp. This one was crafted upon a New Englad Aster in my garden. Now THAT'S a natural artist!

A snakeskin shed from that lovely pollinator garden we built in 2019. It now creates refuge, not just for pollinators, but also birds, frogs and toads, and snakes!! ...

After building a new garage, these clients were left with a steep slope that washed out during every rain storm. With the intention of using this space to create polinator habitat with flowers blooming in every season, the client and I have added plants and kept the unwanted weedy plants out. We initially added some swales to retard fast- flowing washout, stabilized slopes with clover until our perennials and shrubs established. Greenside Up Environmental Services added the stairs last year, and now in its 3rd year, this garden puts on a stunning display and provides incredible habitat to reptiles, amphibians, birds, bees, and butterflies. It has supercharged the biodiversity of this human-buult space!

Oh ya baby, another amazing garden transformation from weeds and invasive species to pollinator-friendly garden. The plants were buzzing with pollinator activity before we even got them in the ground!! This is blissfully empowering work!! Cannot think of a better way to spend these summer days!! Incredibly inspiring company, and together making a difference one backyard at a time.

Another great design by @threesistersptbo , and muscle power of @carlottasjames , @dawn.pond and yours truly.

This badass mama spider held her ground as I weeded around her in a client's garden today. Since becoming a mother, I find myself feeling a connection and sense of empathy for even the tiniest of mighty moms. #gardenspiderwitheggs #gardenspider ...

Today we paused from gardening to tend to our hard-working bodies @spaeuphoriaandlaserclinic . I cannot describe the bliss of this experience! We are renewed and ready to take on this next month of beautiful garden building!!!
