Bees and the Environment

My internet has been functioning consistently for over 24 hours. Oddly, the return of the net coincided with a break in our hot weather. Still crossing my fingers which makes typing a little difficult.

I was catching up with some of my online friends, just to get away from politics for a while, and found this. Vicki B of A Mark On My Wall has written a remarkable post about bees, complete with lovely photos.

It ties in somewhat with my environmental post of the other day.

Ann, I was reading an excellent article in The New Yorker Magazine last night about the bees disappearing. You should pick up a copy, if you have a chance. It was an amazing article.

Cheers,
Josie

True story: one of my cousins has a friend who is bat-shit crazy. The friend, years ago, boycotted honey because she was protesting the enslavement of bees.

I've always wondered if she taped little picket signs to the bees feet.

I have a somewhat sad story to tell about bees. Yesterday our pest control peoples came out to get rid of a problem we had with a bee hive. The hive was right under our front steps and the bees were very active all day.
The guy who did the work was stung three times but managed to rid us of the bees.

Hi ladies, sorry I haven't visited in a while.

Even my 16 year old son has noticed that there haven't been many bees in our garden this year, even though I've been gardening organically for over 10 years, now. If these wonderful little creatures are the "canaries in the coal mine" of the environment, then we're in deep trouble, indeed.
