Rockport Garden Club ©Kim Smith 2014Sign Posted at the Rockport Community Center Garden

Next Monday afternoon at the Community House I will be presenting my “Pollinator Garden” program to the Rockport Garden Club. I am looking forward to meeting with this great group of civic-minded gardeners.  I see their signs all around town at the various gardens they maintain and they do a simply outstanding job! The program begins at 1:15 and the doors open to the public at 1:00.

The Pollinator Garden

Following the rhythm of the seasons, celebrated landscape designer Kim Smith presents a stunning slide show and lecture demonstrating how to create a welcoming haven for bees, birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Native plants and examples of organic and architectural features will be discussed based on their value to particular vertebrates and invertebrates.

Please visit the Programs Page of visit my website for a complete list of program offerings.

Elbert Hubbard Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

“I would rather be able to appreciate things I can’t have, than have things I am not able to appreciate.”

Elbert Green Hubbard (1856-1915)

image

An Illinois native, Hubbard enjoyed early wealth as a successful salesman for the Larkin Soap Company. Inspired by John Ruskin and William Morris, the self-described socialist founded the Roycroft Press and later the Roycroft Community in East Aurora, New York, whose shops produced furniture and printing that had a profound influence on the Arts and Crafts Movement. During the First World War he was fined and had his passport revoked for printing anti-war commentary. He successfully appealed directly to President Woodrow Wilson for it to be reinstated and traveled to Europe to report on the war. Hubbard and his wife were returning to the States on the RMS Lusitania when it was torpedoed by a U-boat and sank off Ireland, both died. Another Hubbard quote: “Don’t take life too seriously. You’ll never get out of it alive.”

This is Not a Bee

notabee

Halibut Point: Bees Bees I’m covered in Bees. A hundred shots of bees and the bees are all out of focus. I think they were all bumble bees and they were bumbling so much they were fuzzy. This bug was in focus.

fuzzybee

One fuzzy bee in focus! Click on the photos to get up close and personal with my fuzzy bee and bug. Click one more time to see the fuzzy head. How does this thing fly? The wings are attached to her head and her ass is humongous compared to the wings. It did fly away.
