AT­TRACT BEES, BUT­TER­FLIES AND FAIRY FRIENDS

Chat It's Fate - - True-life -

Want to hear the flut­ter of tiny wings in your gar­den? En­cour­age all the crea­tures of the air, in­clud­ing fey friends, with some sim­ple ad­di­tions to your out­door space.

What to do:

Bees, but­ter­flies and other pol­li­na­tors love cer­tain flow­ers and herbs, so make a point of plant­ing them, ei­ther in your gar­den or in pots if you don’t have the room. Laven­der, rose­mary, bor­age, hy­acinth, fox­gloves, cos­mos, and cro­cus blooms are all good draws, but there are plenty of oth­ers to choose from, so do your home­work! If you have the space, al­low a small patch of wild grass and flow­ers to grow. Re­sist med­dling and leave this area in the hands of Mother Na­ture. You’ll at­tract lots of wildlife, and the fairies will also be fans; they pre­fer less struc­tured gar­dens with ar­eas to roam. Wind­chimes and bells are a lovely ad­di­tion to any out­side space. The gen­tle sounds soothe the soul, and will also draw na­ture spir­its.
