Sorry for the radio silence, folks! Between prepping for Saturday’s t.v. segment (soon as I obtain a clip of the segment-which went really well!-I’ll be sure to post it here), prepping for the 2nd photo shoot of the new book this past Monday, and then having family come into town on Tuesday, we’ve been busy, busy bees chez English.
Now we (we being Hubs, my two sisters, Huxley & myself) are gearing up for Saturday’s canning class (by the way, we’ve had two cancellations, so, if any of you have a hankering to learn how to water bath can and will be around on Saturday, shoot me an email at ashleyadamsenglish(at)gmail(dot)com). Firstly, though, we’re off today to the WNC Nature Center to hang out with the moms and babies in my mom/baby group that I haven’t seen in ages and ogle the river otters and black bears!
Before heading out, I thought I’d share with this line-up of beautiful wild pollinator habitats that Hubs created (he did a great job, yes?). They’re all up on posts in our garden, on the way to the chicken coop. To learn more about wild pollinators, check out this post I did on Design Sponge last year. We’ve got loads of them on our property, and we couldn’t be happier. Between the two honeybee hives, all of the hummingbirds, butterflies, mason bees and other solitary bees, wasps, hornets, and other lovely winged beauties, we’ve got some great pollination happening out here.
Alright, I’ve got to get the baby dressed, get myself showered, and pack a picnic for noshing on. Have a great day, all!
