Most annual flower seeds can be planted directly into the spots you plan to grow them all season. They will reliably bloom the same year and die at the end of the growing season, completing their life cycle. Perennial seeds...
In Part 1 we explored how wolves can affect an ecosystem from witnessing their elimination and then reintroduction in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, but this concept isn’t far from home. How have the wolf populations fluctuated in the Great Lakes region?

We see them busy at work during the warm months, but where do the pollinators go in the winter?
