The old birdbath from my gran’s garden in Middelburg. It has gotten some cracks over the years and doesn’t hold water anymore, so now I put a bowl on top. The birds love it! #gardenantiques #birdbath #drinkingtroughforbirds #gardeninzeeland #wildlifegardening #garden4wildlife #gardenforbirds #spanjaardstraatmiddelburg

You turn around and your parsley is gone and the fennel is heading toward the same fate! 🐛 . It’s exactly what I hoped to happen. But I may need to quickly buy a few more plants. 🦋 . Who else is helping to birth butterflies? 🖐🏻

I planted fennel and parsley in my flower bed this year. And now I’ve been rewarded with MY FIRST swallowtail butterfly caterpillar! 🐛 . I’m over the moon with excitement! 🦋 . Do you plant anything for wildlife? at Alexandria, Virginia

Use #dontkillmybuzz and tag @beesponsible so that they can donate $1 for every post to @nationalwildlife to help save the bees! #Repost @nationalwildlife: Neonicotinoids were first marketed in the mid-1990s as safer alternatives to organophosphates and other pesticides widely used at the time. While neonics are indeed less toxic to birds and mammals than most of their predecessors, they can be more dangerous to bees and other pollinators. Unlike the majority of those older pesticides, “neonicotinoids are systemic, which means they can permeate every part of the plant, including its pollen and nectar,” explains Michigan State University entomologist David Smitley, who adds that the compounds may remain in a plant many weeks after treatment. Neonics also linger in the environment. “Bees and other wildlife can be exposed to harmful levels of these chemicals months to years after an application,” says Aimée Code, pesticide program director for the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. To avoid neonics—found in hundreds of products, including sprays, granules, tree injections and soil drenches (pesticides applied to the base of plants)—carefully read labels. Steer clear of products that contain imidacloprid, acetamiprid, dinotefuran, clothianidin or thiamethoxam.

Since our pet chameleon won’t be using the cage I found free the other day, I decided to use it for a caterpillar 🐛 butterfly nursery. I have in pots 2 Rue plants and 2 Fennel’s all with cats of different sizes. I placed the cage on the nectar plant pollinator side of the garden so when they turn into butterflies I will release them into the garden. This will be an awesome experience for my future grand-babies to see and so I can teach them the importance of pollinators at a young age. I’m still very sad about our pet chameleon passing away but I am excited my son gave me the idea to still find a good use for this amazing looking cage someone didn’t want anymore. #butterflyhabitat #caterpillar #teachingfuturegenerations #mygarden #onemanstrashisanotherstreasure #texasgarden #fennel #rue #garden4wildlife

This isn’t the best picture, because I was too scared to get any closer. 🤫🕷 I have found that researching these creatures I find in the garden helps me understand them more so I’m not as afraid. So naturally, I looked him up online and it turns out he is an Argiope Aurantia, or Black and Yellow garden spider! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He was pretty big, but his lady is apparently 4x larger. 🕸 One of their unique characteristics is the zig-zag center of their web that you see. This apparently adds stability. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyway, they are not aggressive and will likely drop to the ground and run if you get too close. So now it’s not fear keeping me away, but respect for the lil guy! I’ll have to rig something up to harvest my tomatoes from afar 🥢 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #wildlife #spider #gardenersofinstagram #naturelovers #gardening #homegrown #earth #spiders #garden4wildlife #beneficialinsects

Don’t pull all that Pellitory! Midsummer is prime weed season, and Pennsylvania Pellitory (Parietaria pensylvanica) is going gangbusters.

A giant swallowtail butterfly gets a sip of nectar in a Texas backyard habitat. -------------------------------------------- “Seeing wildlife in our yards is a great indicator of the health of the local environment. In fact, the ongoing health of our communities is directly linked to the health of the wildlife with which we share our backyards, towns, and cities. Quite literally, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat, depends on healthy local wildlife and the natural spaces where they live,” says Mary Phillips, Senior Director of Garden for Wildlife. “When you make simple changes to your outdoor spaces – from whole landscaped areas to a few planters – you are create stepping stones that help reconnect habitats for wildlife across the country.” Anyone, at any age, anywhere can participate in Garden for Wildlife Month with almost immediate positive results for wildlife. Participants can take an active role in potentially doubling the number of diverse local wildlife, while increasing the natural spaces within their communities. But that’s not all: Natural green spaces reduce urban temperatures, reduce water runoff and pollution, and provide a healing connection to nature. #Garden4Wildlife #butterflies #gardens #gardening #greenspaces #wildlife #outdoors #habitats #plants

Just returned from a 10-day vacation, leaving the garden to fate and the drip system. 🧘🏼‍♀️ Here is proof that it survived!! Some plants look a little dry, there’s some blossom-end rot on the tomatoes, and there are little bug poops and munched leaves over many of the plants...but no sight of the intruders. But otherwise, everything is healthy and ALIVE, and we got welcomed back by some beautiful sunflower blooms. So I’d say it’s a win 🏆 Happy to be home 🏡 • • #gardenersofinstagram #backyardinspo #organic #organicgardening #farmtofork #homegrown #growfromseed #growyourown #instagardeners #garden4wildlife #gardening #backyardfarming #urbangardening #urbanfarming #mondays #homesweethome

Bees are an incredibly important group of wildlife. The service they provide by pollinating both our agricultural crops as well as wild plants is critical for our food supply and for maintaining healthy ecosystems upon which all species, including us, rely. But, how much do you actually know about these industrious insects? Take our Beesponsible quiz (link in bio ⬆️) and find out! Here’s a hint for one of the questions: Long-horned bees + squash bees do not live communally 🐝 For more information on @Beesponsible, how you can help bees, and how to participate in a fun social media campaign to support the National Wildlife Federation’s work including the Garden for Wildlife program, visit Beesponsible.com and follow @Beesponsible on social media. #bees #beesponsible #gardens #garden4wildlife #insects #pollinators #quiz #wildlife #squashbees #honeybees #bumblebees #masonbees #longhornedbees #sweatbees #nests #facts #wildlifefacts #spring #nature #TuesdayThoughts

Insect decline is bad news for all animal species, including us humans. "We need insects. Nearly 40% of all animal species on Earth are herbivorous insects. They convert plants into food, in the form of themselves, for all other species." Here are a few ways you can love the bugs in your yard. 1. Learn to see insect activity in your yard as a positive sign of a healthy ecosystem. 2. Have your soil tested, plant the right plants for your soil and region, and make sure they have enough light and water because healthy plants are better able to fight off pests. 3. Become familiar with the insects in your yard, both good and bad. 4. Boost the beneficial insects in your yard because they’ll help control garden pests for free. 5. Attract birds to help control the pests. (Content sample from NWF’s #nationalwildlifemagazine, 📸: @claybolt) #insect #insects #bugs #gardenforwildlife #garden4wildlife #wildlife

Speckled with morning dew, a tiny anole peeks over the lip of a pitcher plant, creating a vivid portrait. "He just went in and out, like he was going to sleep in there," says Anne Grimes, who watched the lizard from a photography shed she built in her North Carolina backyard. The yard is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat, where Grimes tends ponds and plants that nurture native wildlife. "It's a photographers' paradise," says Grimes. "But I spend more time watching than taking pictures."

Isn’t this supa cute??? I swear I’m not setting foot at hobby lobby for a while. To my defense, this was marked down from $17.99 @ 66% off. And since I have a Hummingbird invasion in my garden, I needed more feeders than just the 2 I had. #hummingbirdfeeder #garden4wildlife #toocute #hummingbirds

Bees are a very important part of human existence. We all need to do our part at learning more about the campaign to protect them and teach younger generations of their importance. I have pledged to learn as much as I can and have a pollinator type of wildlife certified garden to be able to teach my future grandbabies everything I can about pollinators. I had been wanting a bee house for a while and I saw this one of all places at hobby lobby at 66% off so now I must put it to work and see if any bees or other insects find it useful. #beehouse #insectshelter #garden4wildlife #naturelover #savethebees #beelover #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #helpthebees #pollination #dontkillmybuzz @beesponsible

Hobby Lobby has all their Spring merchandise at 66% off and some at 75%. I got these glass hummingbird feeders under $5. My plastic ones were leaking because with the heat, the bottles expanded and added air to the nectar and were continuously leaking and were attracting wasps. Hopefully the glass doesn’t do this. #bargains #hummingbirdfeeder #glassvsplastic #greatbuy #garden4wildlife

I need a better camera. I just watched a male and female American Goldfinch dine on my rudbeckia, allium and lone blooming purple coneflower! She’s just to the right of the coneflower. He’s to the right of her, slightly higher and barely to the right of the hanging basket pole. 😍 . THIS is why I garden. And YOU could easily have this experience too. Just find a sunny, well drained location to plant these flowers in your yard or in a good sized container. Hopefully near a window where you can enjoy the view and your wildlife guests on a daily basis. 🐥

Made these super cute feeding and watering stations for bees, hummingbirds and other wildlife. I used plastic pot saucers, blinged them out and used twine to hang them. #birdfeedeer #diy #beewaterstation #wildlifehabitat @growitmobile #garden4wildlife

. s ᴜ ʀ ᴘ ʀ ɪ s ᴇ I was yanking creeping Charlie out of the #pollinatorgarden when I noticed something milkweed-y in the same spot I planted #Asclepias exaltata last year. I thought the #pokemilkweed had died, but maybe not! On the topic of surprise plants... I am going to be salty af if we don't get any swallowtails because the amount of bronze fennel seedlings is crazy. I'm definitely going to relocate some of them. 🤣 #milkweed #plants #botany #nature #horticulture #spring #Apocynaceae #Asclepiasexaltata #garden #gardening #nativeplants #garden4wildlife at Waukegan, Illinois
