A to Z Challenge 2019: B is for Bees

While I am not too fond of insects, especially when they come inside the home, I do love bees. (I don’t bother insects outdoors because I know they have a purpose). I moved into my current home in 2012 and started a garden the following year.

Since then, I have enjoyed watching bees when they gather pollen. One of my favorite things is watching a bee that has pollen on its butt. I usually grow sunflowers every year, and they’re ideal for bee-watching purposes. Sadly, I have noticed that the bee population has declined each year. I now see only a few bees.

I hope this year I will see more because I signed up for The Great Sunflower Project. You can check the details on their site, but in a nutshell it involves planting lemon queen sunflowers and submitting bee reports in the summer. If you feel like it, you can sign up too!

I love bees! They are one of my favorite living creatures. Bees, Bison and Bats! All B names. :)
They are so vital to our ecosystem and we have to protect them.

I love them too. Unfortunately, we have bad memories with them. My FIL had wild bees attack and it took away his life forever.
