Bees in the Garden


Our purple hull pea garden hums with bees.

It’s a large garden and there seem to be bees on every plant.

We may not get many peas from it this year (the deer seem determined to prevent that), but no matter what, we have helped create a happy place for bees.

Postcript: Chris has pointed out that wasps aren’t technically bees (an interesting fact of which I had been unaware). So more accurately I should have said that the garden is buzzing with bees, wasps, hornets and the like. An amazing and beautiful diversity of creatures.
