I appreciate that they pollinate flowers as they forage for pollen and nectar. I also have a fine appreciation for their honey making abilities!
Hillwood is lucky to have them! I am lucky that they live around the corner from me.
Now that's sweet!
Have a honey of a weekend...
It's your garden, plant what ever you want and please, remember to never, ever, ever, ever, use pesticides. I mean never!
