Chatham County Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Garden in Pittsboro attracts an amazing diversity of critters. This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the garden!

I regularly post photos from the garden in the Pollinator Garden album on my facebook page. Click here to see over 800 photos taken over the years: http://go.ncsu.edu/fb-pollinator-photos

 

If you plant it they will come!
