Pollinator Garden

Most of my property gets little sun.  After several storms removed trees, a small sunny area opened.  It still only gets about 4 hours of direct sun but that is more than it had before.  I have planted native azaleas and other flowering shrubs.  The raised beds have a variety of pollinator plants, some that came from the Redbud Project Native plant sale.  Others came from seed heads that I collected when walking with my dog in the neighborhood.
