A local environmental group sent me some sunflower seeds to encourage pollinators. I planted those and the bunnies ate them all so I built this "bunny proof" stone herb spiral/pollinator garden with a 30 gallon pond at the base. I put in lots of driftwood and Lemon Bacopa so the pollinators would have perches. The pond is stocked with a couple dozen minnows to control mosquito larvae. The spiral has flowering purslane, marigolds, Mexican Bush Sage, chamomile, and another flowering bush I forgot the name of.
These are the stones I used to build the spiral and line the pond:
It's real rainy today but I still have a customer.
First are the materials for the watering station: black pot (for height), water dish, rocks harvested from the driveway (drive is crushed rock), glass pebbles, a few twigs leftover from another project.
The water tray is on the black pot nestled in the garden with the rocks and pebbles - still fiddling with getting the twigs stable. I added the pebbles so the bugs still have landing spots when the water is getting low.
Finished bee/insect watering station with water.
