We’ve heard about the bee hives dying, complete hives dead
Last year over 30% of the bee hives in US died.
That terrifies me.
Pollination by hand is so tedious.
The penstemonin my yard are in bloom.
They have a wonderful honey scent.
I planted seeds 15 years ago, after we moved into the house and they have reseeded every year since then.
The flowers have always attracted hundreds of bees.
So much I would worry about being stung if I bumped one of the flower stalks.
The yard would drone with buzzing of the bees.
A big bumble bee would lumber along, squeezing into the small pockets of goodness.
This year there is hardly any bees.
I counted one yesterday in the hour I was outside working.
Our lives depend on bees and other pollinators.
