From Amy, our Communications coordinator, comes this video on building a bumblebee house for the queen to shelter her family.  Not familiar with bumblebee family dynamics? Check here.

On a more somber note, a friend of my sister-in-law lost her beloved dog over the weekend. The dog had chewed on a sago palm which was not labeled as dangerous.  If you have pets, please check this ASPCA list for problem plants. And here’s a site from UC Davis, listing both safe and toxic-to-humans plants.  Pretty isn’t the only criterion for purchase.
