Such a thoughtful book! I have enjoyed reading this book over the past several nights and have gone to bed dreaming of brightly-colored flowers adorning my garden. Alas, the current plants that I have are not bee friendly. I’m not overly fond of these plants and they were already in the ground when I moved into my home. So, the big question is….”do I rip them out?” They are, after all, hiding my hydrangeas, which are bee friendly. I just might. I have thought about it so so many times but this book gives me the reason to rip! I like the sounds of bees buzzing around – it sounds like summer to me. I believe there is nothing better than stretching out on my front porch swing, lazily swinging to and fro, while sipping an iced-tea (sweetened – this is the South) and listening to the sounds of summer.
The Bee-Friendly Garden provided me insight on those that are the optimal flowers to plant…the ones that will make all of the bees happy. The book also taught me a lot about the many types of bees, their happiness, the need for bees, and the need for us to be friendly to bees. The book is a great little bit, so insightful and will make you wonderlust for beautiful plush gardens right outside of your door.
