Wildlife Wednesday at Thyme Square Gardens is an opportunity to Shout Out and share with other people that we don't need pesticides to have a successful organic garden. Diversity is the key element for growing a healthy and productive ecosystem rich with native habitats. With so many things at grave risk and endangered due to natural habitat loss and high chemical use, we must pull together and share with others the importance of a chemical free landscape and garden. That creating native habitats will help preserve our natural resources and give endangered species a chance at survival. Shout Out by posting on our Facebook Page with a photo of your wildlife. Tell us your success stories and your concerns. Just click the link below or post a link in our comment section and we will share it with our readers.
We don't have as much diversity as usual this year in that we are suffering from the worse drought in Texas in over 50 years. I've let a lot more weeds grow that provide some extra flowers and food for the bees and butterflies. My Anole Lizards haven't been peeking out lately. I think they are all down deep in the growth trying to stay cool and damp. We are still getting plenty of bumblebees, but very few honeybees. If it were not for the dense compost throughout the garden we would have lost everything this year. Most all the native plants are hanging in there. They are very drought tolerant, but could really use a bit of a drink.With weather conditions out of control all over the planet this year, it is more important than ever to try and help create some natural habits and of course NO Chemicals PLEASE!! Let's Shout Out People!! We are gardening for future generations!!!
This is a wild thicket area at the back of the garden full of all kinds of native trees and shrubs and I've let Trumpet Vine grow all up into the brush. This area is full of birds that have been teasing me for a picture, but I will prevail. When the Hummingbirds start to migrate back to the south they will have plenty of food and safety in here. Please join us this Wednesday.
