Bees and Butterflies

Bees and butterflies are two of my favorite things. I have learned over the years of bee keeping and butterfly watching that If I feed them, they will come.В  As a result, every year, I plant seeds that will grow into natural food, habitat, and medicine for my winged friends.В  Under grow lights in the basement are several flats of Thyme (antibiotc for the bees) and Butterfly Weed (habitat for the butterflies).В  In May, the plants will go out to the main garden to welcome my bees and butterflies.В  I know that one of the reasons our garden always has a good harvest is because of the pollinators. I feed them and they come and pollinate my vegetables, herbs,В  fruit frees, and berry bushes. The bees are my friends and I have never been stung. It is all good.В
