This past summer we vacationed in Colorado and visited the Denver Botanical Gardens. I loved every bit of it! So much inspiration!
I had just learned about "bug hotels" when our Extension Office offered a class for kids to make bug hotels. My kids didn't get to go, but some of my 4h Club members did and I thought the hotels they made were great. Of course they were smaller than the ones we saw on our trip.
This is a "must do" project now for our garden. A bit ridiculous as we live on an acreage with lots of trees, lots of dead trees, leaf mulch, and water: a great bug environment!
But, these are like art! The shape and textures....just very cool.
The micro world of the bugs in the garden is just amazing to me. I cut flowers all summer long for the house and all summer long after I arrange them, the little "hitch hikers" need to be dealt with.
This quick Google search will just inspire you if you want to make a bug hotel too!
