Pollinator Season

It's August and my pollinator populations are at their peak.  

I admit to choosing plants that attract pollinators because I like to watch the little ecosystem in my yard.  I watch the bees, wasps, their mimics and their predators darting around my flowers.  I feel like I'm contributing to the environment - increasing the population of a group of organisms that are in decline.

Plus I kind of think they're pretty. 

And, no, neither The Husband nor myself has gotten stung in the garden.
