Bee News!

We have new and exciting news regarding our bees!  As some of you have realized, the patio is right in the bee flight path so the bees fly over our heads (and sometimes into my head!) as they go about their business.  This used to be less of a problem when the bees were hidden behind the shrubs.  But since the bees aren’t behind the shrubs any longer, we’re all in the same space.

Recently, our awesome bee keepers found some information in the American Bee Journal that shows that bee friendly bushes (like holly) will not only flower (keeping the bees happy), but will also serve as a means to make the bees fly up and over the hedge and thus, over our heads instead of into them!  Sounds like a win-win, right?

The news gets better!  Our awesome bee keepers and some of our equally awesome gardeners researched this win-win situation and donated some holly bushes for our garden!  Now, I love holly bushes!  Don’t you?  Turns out, so do bees and birds!  Another win-win!  The hollies will be planted in big pots and will service the garden, the bees, and the birds for years.

Stay tuned for an update from our bee keepers.  And, when the time comes, enjoy our beautiful new holly bushes!  Each time you pass by, pause to thank our gardeners for their hard work and kind donations.
