This picture was taken today, the bees were in the alyssum, I don't blame them,
it smells wonderful.
These tiny little creatures, yes, the ones who's sting can hurt so bad, are some of our best friends. With the devastating loss of so many of them comes a reminder of just how important they are to us. Without them we would have no food, the crops would not be pollinated and basically it's the growing things that keep us all alive, including other creatures. So, we would starve to death.
Occasionally I can smell some poison that some neighbor has sprayed to kill the "insects" and they never think nor care about the consequences. The bees are welcome in my yard, dandelions and flowers grow and the bees are welcomed. I'm thankful for the bees. Diane
