We allow areas to thrive as they would in the wild, welcome critters that share the land with us, and even have bee houses set up around the yard.
Yup, it’s our little sanctuary. However, if you told me I would have such a green thumb three to four years ago, I would’ve laughed. I couldn’t even keep a cactus alive back then.
