19 years ago, there were clouds of Monarchs during migration season. 5 years ago, I did not see even 1 Monarch. So, 4 years ago we planted Milkweed in the back yard. It is the only plant Monarchs lay eggs in.
I’d also heard that they are attracted to their own colours, and colours of the Milkweed. Ours is green and orange. It took until this summer to get the painting organized. I’m pleased to say that I saw about 50- 100 Monarchs this year.

The wall was constantly being tagged. This is what it looked like before the painting.
The best is; since the Burners were painted…not 1 tag!
No one can paint crustaceans & other sea life like Nick Sweetman
The Jeep? Okay, she’s not a sea creature, but unfortunately, she finds them tasty. She insisted on being in this blog post. Of course she is the most glamorous cat on earth at this moment, along with her BF, Emmy.
Butterflies, hummingbirds & wind also pollinate, but bees do the lions’ share. Click on the next 2 images, & see bees working in all their glory.
At first, when I saw this mural on Queen East, I thought “Gorgeous”!
Immediately thereupon, I wondered why the artist had a clock set at 11:00, & gears in the mural with the bees?
Then it hit me!
Bees, & all pollinators are dying off due to pesticides & herbicides. It is their 11th hour. After discussing this with Marina Kanavaki, she made up her April’s clock read 11:00 for this post.
On Art Towards A Happy Day Marina spreads the importance of all life on the planet. If you click on her clock, bees will fly you to its original “Diamond Four” artwork.
So, let’s view this mural’s details from left to right.
Hello! Don’t bee afraid of me! I’m pollinating for you!
There was a shadow growing across the smaller right side of the mural.
I feel it is nature adding her own poetry. (blows up nicely)
When I looked across the street, I saw that the clock & a bee were reflected in the windows of a library.
I see time & the bee, melting …. fading away.
I think that I shall never see, a mural pretty as a bee! (TY, Joyce Kilmer!)
