Great First Day at Los Feliz Elementary!

Today was a great first day of class at Los Feliz Elementary. We reviewed the rules of the garden, important facts about plants, and went on a garden tour. Here are some of the wonderful plants in the garden.

Lavender looks and smells nice, and it attracts beneficial pollinators.

This photograph is highly magnified. It is a moth using its proboscis to drink nectar out of mint flowers. These moths are our garden friends!

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
