June 21-27 is Pollinator Week. Pollinators move pollen, which fertilizes plants to make fruit, seeds, and new plants. Celebrate the many pollinators this week, which include bugs, birds, and bats. Pictured clockwise are a female Broad-tailed Hummingbird, Honeybee, Melissa Blue butterfly, and a Common Looper Moth.
Welcome Summer! Make sure you stay hydrated in the heat. Here are three female finches at the bird bath… House Finch, Lesser Goldfinch, and a Pine Siskin.
Here’s the first strawberry to grow in my garden this season.
