Garden City or Bust


This is a spot I did for Lee Hawkins in the most recent issue of R-HOME magazine. The article, by Sara Jackson, is about the "frightening decline of pollinating insects over the last 30 years in the U.S." It states that in Va. alone the  "bee population has fallen nearly 70 percent in the last 30 years, from nearly 100,000 in the mid-70's to around 35,000 in 2011." She then offers 5 suggestions that we as back yard gardeners can implement to lure the pollinators back.

First rough sketch.


Second tight sketch.
