Our (honey)bees have been busy, lately:
The thing that never fails to amaze me is that — no matter how many “bee-friendly” plants I put in the ground — they always go for the clover. Always.
At least they seem reasonably happy and healthy.
Besides, there are tons of other bees who *do* appreciate my landscaping efforts: bumble bees, carpenter bees, sweat bees, squash bees, blueberry bees, miner bees, mason bees, not to mention all the flies that look like bees…the list goes on and on, and that’s kind of nice.
Because we need our pollinators, all of them.
