Butterflies, Bees and Hummingbirds

Blooming headgerow with lavender, sage and lilac.Hedgerows have been planted on two sides of the house to encourage pollinators.

Since early spring, lilac, sage, lavender and daphne have been blooming and scenting the house with lovely garden smells.

Looking out the windows we can watch the butterflies, bees and hummingbirds visiting the flowers. The hummingbirds come into the area in groups of three to six at a time. The plants shake with the ruffle of the small birds flitting this way and that.
