2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,400 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.



North American Native Bees


Another interesting horticulture subject for winter review !

Below is the link to a PDF document on native bees , A USDA Forest Service and Pollinator Partnership Publication written by  Beatriz Moisset, Ph.D. and Stephen Buchmann, Ph.D.

Here are some interesting podcasts to get you started:
