    Gotta make up for all those trees you’ve killed making sparkly awesomeness!

    I guess saving the bees will suffice

    Looks a little dry....

    Good to see the Bees will have a place to move. Gentrification around here moves the Bees out as 6 acres of condos go in.

    Good going, we need more people chipping in that way. Nice pic too and I gotta say, I don't think I've ever seen a photo of Iowa with that many "hills". Good luck and thanks.

    I love pollinator plants. They are great on salads... so generic tasting..

    Something that was sourced from Habitats Forever. I don’t know the exact mix but it is heavy on milkweeds

    We are 1/2 mile away from and 300’ above the Mississippi

    In the “drift less region”. It was missed by the last glacial advance. Land wasn’t bulldozed flat like most of the Midwest. Just south of the “A”

    The Driftless Area is beautiful. It's where we have actual hills n' hollers in northern IL.

    I grew up in Freeport on the eastern edge. Did undergrad at UW-Platteville. The Driftless Region has always been a part of my life
