    Your local poet lady wrote this:

    To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
    One clover, and a bee.
    And revery.
    The revery alone will do,
    If bees are few.

    But it’s much better if bees aren’t few.

    Wonderful close-up, Steve. Happily, my native plantings are buzzing with native pollinators, I love seeing all that activity.

  8. Trying to do my little bit in my garden to help them with pollinator friendly plants and avoiding all pesticides, this just needs to spread to global agricultural practices! Have to start somewhere…

    • We are pesticide free although I am not sure about my lawn crazy neighbor so if they wander… 😦
      We each do our part. It is a shame so many don’t take the survival of bees or the importance of natural systems as seriously as they should. In many cases, integrated pest management and natural paths are less expensive once farms are weaned off chemicals but convincing folks of that is difficult.

    • Thanks, Jane! They are so important if only more of us realized that and did what is necessary to promote their numbers. Most are not our native bees but I guess at this point in time that is less important than just encouraging them to multiply.
