The Wildscape garden project is doing great, despite the recent heat. It is nice to be able to irrigate every inch the way we have it set up. We hope you enjoy the photos of some of the flowers in bloom now.
Butterflies and hummingbirds have found the flowers and are arriving in good numbers.
We’re happy to report that more items have been donated to the garden, including some solar water fountains that will provide a soothing sound and the moving water source many insects and birds enjoy.
Many native plants are thriving, and we have plans to plant small trees in the fall, for their best chance of success.
Also, in bird news, upwards to 600 Rio Grande turkeys were requested this year at Bird and Bee Farm, and they are building new structures for chickens, where they can roam outside in the prairie.
