If we want to save the bees...

... maybe we all need to plant more lavender. I'm seeing lots of bees around my lavender plants this year and remember noticing their lavender preference last year too. Wonder what lavender honey tastes like!

Here's one of this morning's visitors to my garden.


  1. Cape mallow is another good plant. Attracts bees of all kinds.

    My husband and I have been keeping "garden bees" for years. They are absolutely fascinating creatures. Gorgeous photo!

  3. I have a zillion bees in my raspberry patch...let's all grow raspberries, yum!

    What a great pic! I'm going to put you on my blogroll. I have a new gardening blog, The Consummate Gardener, that you're welcome to visit. Not much there right now, but I'm working on it.
