The busiest place on November Hill: native pollinator garden!

Loving the pollinator garden! All the activity is exactly why I planted it. Here’s a shot from yesterday. There were so many critters flying around me, each finding their favorite native plants to visit.

I’m also excited to report that I’ve enrolled in the NC Botanical Garden’s Native Plant Studies certificate program. I’ll be taking 9 core courses plus a slew of electives over the next couple of years to complete the requirements, and at that point work with an advisor on a capstone project that I’ll implement and present with poster to receive my certificate. 

Watch for updates and more photos as I start this new journey on November Hill.

Beautiful garden and flying friends! How exciting to be learning new things all the time. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.

I’m really looking forward to it! I actually start botany on Saturday - the next four weeks for a total of 20 hours. There was a waiting list for the class but I got in, which means I can sign up for Taxonomy in the fall. :)

The garden is looking fabulous!

It is - though with all the rain we’ve had a few of the plants are getting messy. And I need to set up a barrier so water from the barn doesn’t flow right through the upper bed in huge rains.
