One early morning in June, I was lucky to get to share a rain soaked poppy patch with the bees. I sat
for hours watching them buzz all around me happily working away. Something about the gentle sound of their buzzing from flower to flower is so calming to me.
I hope to someday have my own flower gardens and maybe even a hive or two of bees. I want to make my property pollinator friendly. Lots of flowers and sweets for the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. I will give them what they want and I will get their company in return.
Sadly, the sweet little pollinators are in trouble. We can all help by creating more habitats and NOT using any pesticides! Please check out the links below for more info on saving our pollinators.
If you want to watch a beautiful nature documentary about our pollinators check out Wings of Life.
It's STUNNING and narrated by Meryl Streep.
