Home Of The Bumblebee

Beehive

Originally this plastic bag of peat moss was just lying on the ground waiting to be used, but apparantly it has been there long enough for the bumblebees to move in. Normally I don’t like to have bees living that close to the house, but when you are growing your own food I think it’s a good thing to have the bees around. They pollinate the flowers so they are valuable creatures that deserves a good home, so next year I’ll put up a little wooden house for them. It’s amazing how the diversity grows when you loosen your grip on nature. It’s the same thing with lawns.
