Recently it’s been quite dry here in Minnesota. We put out this helpful PSA on social media, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive, so we wanted to share in a more permanent fashion as well.
Put water out for the bees, frogs, squirrels, birds, snakes and more. Due to the drought, they are dying of thirst.
They are not aggressive. They are thirsty and begging for your help.
The water in your garden attracts them.
Put out a baking pan, a large bowl or a kiddie pool in the far end of the garden if you don’t like these creatures coming close to you or your home. A little compassion goes a long way.
Last night I found 4 frogs and a tiny garden snake all the way up on my 2nd story patio where I was watering my indoor plants. The water had attracted them to climb up.
I cannot reiterate this enough: A little compassion goes a long way.
It takes a lot for any animal, bird, reptile or insect to leave their comfort zone and ask for your help.
