    it is not required to be a professional to mend the clothes on own. start slow by practicing. practice makes a man perfect. i started learning to mean using online and then did a lot of practice on old unused clothes before I could mend the casual wears.

    Pollinators are key in growth of trees. Honeybee is my favorite but is not common in my area. Butterflies are most common and have them seen often in and around my area.
