We have bees. Or rather – I have flowers and Gracia has bees. Lots. They teach me about hard work and perseverance. I plant them flowers. When they first came to live here they didn’t seem to care for my flower garden. They’ve taken a shine to it recently and you have to be mindful when you snipping sprigs or walking through the clover.
It’s interesting to see what they prefer. I’m sure all the beekeeps know all about their taste buds but as I’m just a bee friend, I get to learn by slow observation. I want to know how they feel about Bee Balm. It’s about to bloom.
Gracia took the pictures. She loves her girls.
