Thought of you when I was reading this article this morning @JBtheExplorer . We've visited the Shedd countless times and I had no idea these gardens were even a thing!

Wow, what a legacy she's leaving behind !

Today we cut back some honey suckle and planted some goldenrod on a hillside to reduce erosion and attract pollinators. Hubby used rocks to create litter cubbies in the hillside and to plant the goldenrod in. Turned out really well :)

We planted golden rod years ago, have it growing here and there and everywhere. I don't see a ton of bees on it, but you can smell it when they bring it into the hives. Some say dirty sock smell, I smell butterscotch.
