Summer In the Pollinator Garden

 There are many communities where a garden such as this would not be allowed. Instead, tidy lawns and restrictions on the style of mailboxes are enforced.  But on this corner birds chortle and chirp as they perch on coneflowers and teasels. I hear the soft sound of their wings as they dart after insects. Butterflies alight briefly among the tall grasses that splay over the edge of the sidewalk. It may not satisfy some humans' needs for tidiness and order, but it's a little corner of heaven for pollinators.
