Score One For The Bees!

I don't live anywhere near Shorewood, but if I were a bee, I'd head up there. I hope this encourages other towns to take note and do likewise. I have almost no zucchini this year, and lots of blossoms but no fruit on the eggplants. I also have few bees. Coincidence? I don't think so!

  1. I hope more places follow. We have a few bee keeper friends who are trying to set us up with some x

  4. Interesting indeed!
    I don't think - well I have never heard of bee killing here - being done here in Australia.
    Bees are so important for pollination. Just too bad if you get strung. You obviously were
    just too close to the busy bee and his/her work.
    Looking forward to tomorrow - Holmenkollen, here we come!!!
    Cheers

  7. There have been problems here with the decreasing bee population but I've not heard any reports about it being caused by insecticide. Bees are vital in my part of the world as Kent is a huge fruit growing area and the growers and bee keepers work together to ensure pollination takes place.

  8. That is a great decission, here a local school planted flowers along a canal to attract the bees.

  9. You've hit the nail on the head. Shorewood is to be commended.

  11. I think the corporate farmers that spray all the time have something to do with the lack of bees here. We have a few...but not many. You can take a paint brush and help those flowers pollinate...wind also helps pollination as do other insects:)
