I am pleased to see lots of bees in my garden lately. The community garden a block over from my home maintains three hives and the bees seem to cover quite a big area of the neighborhood. Late afternoon finds my garden flowers laden with pollen heavy friends. Bee-keeping has always been one of my dreams and hives are a fantastic addition to any garden. Alas and alack, no room in my small-ish city garden. Why bees? Well, I notice a huge difference in the abundance of flowers and fruits and vegetables between gardens regularly visited by bees and those that are not. Have you noticed this as well? It's all about the pollination, baby!
