green up your life!


i noticed that there are less an less bees awound, an that is beary sad because it means also less honey and us bears wuv honey!


It also means much less fruit and thus higher prices for these yummy vitamine providers… it is an all in all sad stowy

twee-cherry3But it need not be such a sad stowy, because to help them bees and other species to survives each and everyone of us can do their part! For example do not get rd of “weeds” in your yards and flowerpots, such as the dandelions or daisies. They not only look beautimous, they also provide for generations of bees!


Around your house there may be some odd places where you could put flower pots. Why not get a summer flower seeds mix and plant that for a change.


Cornflowers, chrysanthemum and many others will provide well for the diligent bees and bumble-bees and be very pleasing to your eye. That small path to your garage or terace could become a diner for bees!

Even a little herb garden will provide food for bees, because thyme, rosemary, sage, basil, oregano and many other delicious kitchen herbs also bloom and have tiny flowers for the bees to attend to. So its a double win. Food for them and more yummy food for you as well!


Go easy on ripping out weeds alongside your house and on pathways. Wooksie what blooming wonders may grow from what may have looked like weed! And while sometimes the potted plants need some extra care, and may be late bloomers, the natural robust “weeds” will please you with their growth and magnificence: for free!!!!


Your paved, and maybe boring yard (or is it ZEN? *giggles*) can be flowered up quite easily creating an eye catcher everyone will envy you for. And the bees will get food galore!


And of course you can even ask in your local district, grocery store or city council if you or them could not turn the rather boring traffic refuge into a colorful bees refuge, so everybody wins!


See? it would not be so hard for them bees if everyone did at least one of those suggestions. i know that not everyone lives in a housie, but you do have a window sill, and maybe you also could just plant some flower seeds on them outskirts, in “no mans land”. It is an all win situation after all,  wight? wight!
