Bee Garden at LiVE WORK

I just completed my garden for the bees installation. It was an enduring day, but the garden is finished, which symbolizes the beginnings of this yearlong project experiment.

Moths – I just read that they “normally orient to the moon and so are fooled by our electric lights”. This may explain why Jeremiah saw so many in the trees yesterday.

Yesterday, I planted a garden for bees at 12 & Lawton. Plants are clustered, as bees prefer large quantities of similar flowers together to make it worth their flight to gather nectar and pollenate. I was outside in the rain all day! The plants and the salamanders were much more acclimated. I made a soup of myself in the bath for hours last night and am recovering.
