This morning I noticed that there were very few bees around the garden. This is the time of the year when the garden should be buzzing with bees. You can see that we are in trouble, when the Queen Palm blooms and there are no bees around it. Queen Palm flowers are magnets for bees. This was the lone bee flying around my Angels Trumpets this morning.
I read the other days that a group of gardeners in the Bay Area of California started keeping beehives as a mater of survival for their gardens. I blogged about it the other days about keeping bees in my garden, I'm currently looking into it. My wife is completely against it, because of a bad experience we had with a hive that settled in our roof. I believe that we all must do our part keeping the garden ecosystem healthy, and bees are a major contributors to that ecosystem. Waiting for somebody else to do it may never get done.
