Native Pollinator Garden at Saginaw Chippewa Academy (06 June 2017)

While waiting for Shara today I photographed the Native Pollinator Garden at the Saginaw Chippewa Academy.  Most of the pollinator gardens that we have installed have a mix of plants that bloom throughout the growing season.  Right now the garden at SCA is at one of its two annual peaks - the other will be in August/September.

Enjoy the pics.

This garden is a certified Monarch Waystation and Native Plant Butterfly Garden
