World Bee Day, 2022

I just saw Eliza’s post about World Bee Day, so felt compelled to post something before this day goes by unnoticed. Like Eliza, I ask all gardeners please not to use chemicals to get rid of weeds or pests. There is almost always a kinder alternative that will not harm pollinators.

This is my Peony ‘Claire de lune’ which opened yesterday, with a bee in her ruffles. 😃

  1. A beautiful peony and a beautiful bee. We have plenty of them in our garden as my husband is a bee-keeper. He does his best to keep the bee population from declining but the general situation is pretty alarming.

    • As far as I can judge in my garden there are still plenty of wild bees and bumble bees in our area. The nearest beekeeper hives are about a kilometre away, so don’t know if they visit us too.
