Chicory And A Wee Bee

Chicory is a blue-flowered perennial plant that has several benefits. It is added to coffee as a flavor enhancer, the leaves can be added to salads and is a mild laxative. It also contains beta-carotene, a proven antioxidant.On top of that Chicory is a pollination-fuel station for our planets pollinators. Here is a photo I took Sunday of a very happy bee doing what bees do.

Change Is Good

For the last several months I have been writing and reading more and persuading photography less. I have hit the place most know, and that is where do I want to go with my (insert your gift or passion here). So I have spent a lot of time thinking, praying and meditating on next steps for my writing and photography.

What I have decided to do is educate others, as well as myself, about the macro world. That is the world we just pass by and whether willfully or ignorantly give zero thought to. Everything we dump on this planet and every chemical we use distresses the world within our world. That is the place pollinators reside and spiders reduce the bug population and wasp keep in check the spider population and so on. There maybe a Planet B but we do have is a gem among the stars and planet that deserves our best.

So if you see random articles and  links please click on them and walk with me as I try to leave the Earth a better place for next generation. Also I ask for you patience as I try our different themes to make my place on the web a little easier to navigate.

This photo was taken at our wildflower garden. I hope to have three more next year and a better planting strategy. Or any planting strategy. Stay tuned!
