You may wonder why I'm posting so many fly pics. Well, a really large group of flies was in the garden this morning and relayed to me that they were looking for free publicity shots for their new public image campaign titled "We Live Here Too." They said that butterflies typically get a lot of attention and that now everyone is all about the bees as well. The flies say they really need to get the word out about all of the good works they have been doing ... ever so humbly and quietly. Meanwhile, they suggest you "toss the flyswatters and start asking yourself: 'What can you do to attract more flies to your garden?'"
