First time I've seen this , Sin...
I can't have an apiary where I live , as the neighbors
are too close , and they would kill the bees , or me...;)
However , I grow roses , and other flowers for them
that they love...
During the summer , here in California , they come gather
the nectar from my garden , small though it is...
When I caretake a friends land , however...
His garden is huge , with blackberry bushes , as well...
I have to gather baskets of berries , and vegetables ,
and they are all around me...
And he has an apple orchard...
I talk to them , ask them how they are doing , wish
their hive well...
Interesting post someone made , about "talking"
to the bees...I was not aware of that...
And , as I am running my dremel , carving antler ,
the frequency of sound and vibration , sometimes
attracts them...interesting to try to get a bee off
your dremel , gently , so you can work...
Yes , bees are extremely important...and in California ,
especially in Sonoma county , and surrounding areas ,
there has been a resurgence in apiaries...
Thanks for trying to bring awareness to the situation !
Good news , Sin...
The city near where I live , as of last nite , became the first in California
to be declared an official bee habitat , and is seeking the funds to
propagate hive colonies !
Hope that makes your day nicer to hear that !
