Chris Buscemi from Maine, attracts bees, butterflies and moths, delighting in their daily dance throughout the garden.
"This is my perennial garden in my front yard. I wanted to attract wildlife so I planted Echinacea and Phlox as the favorites for bees and butterflies and the adorable Sphinx Hummingbird moth. I also added zebra grass and Perovskia. I love sitting in our adirondack chairs and watch the show of buzzing bees and dancing butterflies. I love the grasses in the fall in all their splendor when the summer blooms have gone to sleep for the winter. I fill in with annuals like Pentas and petunias and also have Lamb's ears and Echinops and poppies. We live in Wells, ME two miles from the ocean. I love my garden which we can enjoy from all of the rooms that face our garden."
