Be sure to also plant native plants for native bees. Honey Bees are nice, but they are Old World, and are not native to the New World. And many of those flowers are similarly old world.

Today is World Poetry Day.

This is perhaps my favorite poem:

Self Portrait
It doesn't interest me if there is one God or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned.
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world with its harsh need
to change you.
If you can look backwith firm eyessaying this is where I stand.
I want to knowif you know how to melt into that fierce heat of livingfalling towardthe center of your longing.
I want to know if you are willingto live, day by day, with the consequence of love and the bitter unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in that fierce embrace, eventhe gods speak of God.
-- David Whyte

Intellect won't save us; however, poetry just might.

Here are some of my favorite poems  . . .

And who has the most musical poetic voice?
No question: Sarah Brightman.
