    Great picture and I love your resolutions. I think I might have to co-opt some of them myself.

    Manarda (bee balm) is great for attracting both bees and butterflies (and it smells so yummy). Also butterfly weed (I think that’s what it is called)–very hearty and monarchs love it. Gallardia, too. Bees seem to really dig echinacea and black-eyed susans–but I’m sure there is a bee/honey/wildflower website with more accurate info. Happy New Year!

    Jeanne, thanks for your sweet comment. If only the radish sprouts had actually turned into edible radishes…I didn’t have much luck with those this year.

    Corina, thank you for your tips and list — those are great ideas! Wishing you the happiest of New Years, too — I miss you, chica!
