For the Love of Bee and Ladybug Attracting Flowers

Ohhh how it feels timely to create a post about flowers – good for the spirit (mine and hopefully yours).

When planting flowers from seed I tend to favour varieties that attract beneficial insects to the garden – love those bumble bees and lady bird bugs.
