Today's Flowers: Flowers without Bees?



I was reading the other day about the decline in the number and variety of bumble bees and thinking about the effect on the number and variety of plants that fill our world where we let them. It's a sad thing. Our world needs kindness beginning with the smallest of creatures.

  1. Oh ya. Bumble bees are nice little guys
    but seems we have these killer wasps coming up north. Not good news for bees.
    Farmers should all have bee hives.

  8. Oh so right. We have two types of bumbles in our garden. Plus several bumble mimics. It won't be long and we will be able to see them. Can't hardly wait.

  9. No flowers - no bees
    No bees - no flowers
    I am using white clover in our lawns and noticed more bumble bees and other insects in our garden. White clover is very beneficial but many gardeners consider the plants:(
    Lovely picture!
