Save our Native Bees, plant native to your area plants.

A Series of watercolor painting created specifically of native pollinators and native plants.
I learned that many native bees are specialists that depend on certain native plants for their survival.
After planting native to our area plants on our front lawn I became amazed at the variety of bees and butterflies that make use of the tiny wild garden. Now wherever I go in BC and Alberta I look for bees on native plants. I give special thanks to The Edmonton Native Plant Group who started me on my first tiny wild garden which is now inspiring me create paintings of these tiny beings, and some are amazingly tiny, like an 1/8th inch.
