The north side of our front yard is a certified National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. Really! We have a certificate! You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young. It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit. I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

Each week I co-host a linky party on Tuesdays, called Tuesdays with a Twist. Most parties begin with one of my photographs, usually from our garden.
On this particular day, I was out snapping pix of these native asters that bloom into late Fall. Then I noticed something move.
A Bee! This guy was too busy working to even notice he was on camera.
They are such amazing creatures. Pollinators are tiny yet so very important to our environment. You can attract them to your garden by planting natives. It's imperative to choose plant material throughout your garden to extend bloom times absolutely as long as possible thru the growing seasons.
