Our poor gardens are seeing fewer bees. While the sting of an angry bee may not be pleasant,if you leave them alone they do awesome bee things in your yard like pollinate! The bee population is dwindling down from nasty pesticides to the loss of habitats, but there is something you can do! To bring ladybugs (they eat pesky aphids!) butterflies, birds and bees into your garden plant some flowers and shrubs they like! Some more unique pollinators are the banana bat, the red-bellied lemur and on the ground the blue tailed day gecko lizard! June 21- 27 is National Pollinator Week so for a complete list of eco-regional planting guides visit their website http://www.pollinator.org/ And as you are enjoying your freshly planted garden with the birds and bees sip on a cocktail inspired by our honey making busy bee friends!
