Explore Outdoors ~ Little Bees do a Big Job
My garden is a haven for small bees of every make and model: metallic green bees, fuzzy gray bees, huge shiny black carpenter bees, and yellow-and-black bumble bees. On a warm afternoon it can be positively noisy with all the humming and buzzing.
Next time you pass by a patch of flowers, pay attention to the insects flying - and crawling - around on the flowers. Coneflowers, like this, attract a diversity of bees as well as butterflies, beetles, and flower flies. They're like a busy take-out place.
