Beautiful Nature in my Yard from Caterpillars to Butterflies

Caterpillars come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Their beauty can often be deceiving since their hairs often contain venom which can be poisonous to humans and predators. Toxic caterpillars can be found in many places including backyard gardens, parks, and fields.

Facebook Post Wonders In My Yard

The #reel is in Spanish. I talk about how wonderful nature is. One seed of a sunflower gave me this beautiful multiple sunflowers plant. The bees enjoy it so much, the hummingbirds, myself. Pollination in my urban farm has been fantastic this year thanks to the sunflowers and other bee pollination plants I acquired for this growing season.

Wonders in My Garden My Sunflower and A Poem

I’m so happy I got my first sunflower so early in the year. I know, it’s only one now. It is probably a seed from last year’s sowing. I will be planting more seeds very soon 🤗

Ah Sunflower

by: William Blake (1757-1827)

Ah, Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveler’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!
