To make a Prairie, it takes a Clover and one Bee..... Helen Dickinson 1830-1886
Plant flowers, Herbs and Vegetables for the bees and wasps---they are endangered,
and we NEED them
To make a pound of honey, the bees need to go 50,000 miles and visit 2 million flowers
Do make a floral design.....Because....
"If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can possibly find fault with, you will not do much", and you won't discover all the things you are capable of doing, and enjoying.
