30 Day Thanksgiving Challenge - Day 19

I had to finish this challenge by being thankful for garden bugs, most especially for my blog's namesake, the bee. I've been fortunate to see several different varieties of bees in my little garden. Love these little pollinators!

I'm thankful for the good, bad, and ugly bugs (bad bugs are sometimes a food source for the good ones). I have learned a lot about gardening and a little about entomology by observing these little creatures.

Finally, Thank You, Cat, for leading this fun challenge! I really enjoyed joining you and other members of the garden blogging community in reflecting on the little (and big) things to be grateful for. I think it's become a habit now--I often catch myself thinking, "I'm thankful for this..." :)

{Throughout November I linked up with The Whimsical Gardener's 30 Day Challenge to post about something you're thankful for every day. My posts are under the tag giving thanks}.


  1. I'm terrified of bug bug bugs...that is one downside of being a gardener. :) But I'm glad there are good bugs too!

  2. I too am thankful for the bugs - good and bad and am learning to enjoy them all (well, maybe not enjoy ALL of them, but to see the good in them :)

  3. @Hanni and Christine--I'm with you both. I'm scared of bugs too, but learning to appreciate them and what they do for gardens. :)


Hello, and thanks for stopping by my garden site. I appreciate the time it takes to read posts and comment. Happy Gardening!
