Pollinators love swamp verbena on west side of World Peace Wetland Prairie

Please click on images to see at least three pollinators working swamp verbena on the west side of World Peace Wetland Prairie on July 31, 2009. Only the one in the middle closeup photo looks like the honeybees I sometimes accidentally stepped on with my bare feet during my Louisiana childhood. But the other two are as plentiful as the honeybees on prairie acreage hereabouts. Protecting such native plants is important to the pollinators on which we depend for a high percentage of our food! Want to help? Then please don't mow before November!
