For the time I've lived here I've provided a drinking bowl for the critters and insects. I've set the bowl next to the railing so birds can quickly escape if my cat comes by. Sometimes I go out and an insect or bee has died since they couldn't fly or climb out. I found a rock in the garden to place in the water to provide a ladder for them to climb out. It's a big rock so I'll look for a smaller rock. But in the meantime this will help them get a drink and still fly away. The possums and raccoons would prefer and open bowl but they'll have to adapt. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
