Some folks’ morning may be off to a shaky start with yesterday’s volatile stock market rattling the country. So why not take a slice of essential advice from a prized creature in our garden – bees. In an endless search for nectar as well as a constant pollinator, bees are certain to remain busy. Need a lesson from nature to bee-lieve? Plant an amazing perennial that blooms well into September plus attracts bees and butterflies. A hardy, tough and reliable Agastache 'Blue Fortune' is just that plant where bees buzz and toil in the morning sunshine. If you missed last July’s short post on this phenomenal perennial, here’s the link.
And just in case you forgot today’s message, heed the advice of bees and hardy perennials: bee-lieve that the rugged and reliable can keep blooming in the thick of it all; simple lessons straight from the garden. Samuel Johnson said it perfectly. “Knock the "t" off the "can't." And add an extra ‘e’ in Believe!
