Garden Pollinators – Photos by Laurie Dirkx

Ideally, we’d all go back to never using toxins for beauty. That is, for every time we’re using a weed killer, or chemical fertilizers on our lawns, or for pesticides in our gardens, well, these photos here are just a few of the creatures harmed in the process. Our world is changing, and in not so good ways. Back to basics is appealing more by the day. After all, we didn’t get to this millennium without initially utilizing natural defenses through all these years. Food for thought, pun intended. All photos taken in Ontario, NY www.LaurieDirkx.com
