This weekend, my father and I took a visit to Winthrop to check up on the plants and hang up a sign.
The plants were doing very well, although a couple look like they need a little help. The faculty at Winthrop have been very kind to look at the plants and run a soaker hose through the garden to keep it hydrated. I feel confident the plants will begin to thrive in the Spring, and if they don’t, I have backup plants that we can place in the garden to feed the bees.
After admiring the plants, I nailed the official Certified Wildlife Habitat sign onto the post that will soon be a shelter for native bees. It is bright and beautiful, especially because it means that Winthrop now has their own official contribution to the environment.
