Bee Time

In the last couple of weeks I have started to see bee hives placed along the edges of the almond orchards.bee hives, almond orchards, california, central valleyThis picture is a from a little bit later in the year, but the blooms are not far off.

White Flowers, Bees, Pollinators, Honey Bees, Australia, Royal Botanic GardensBees are a vital worker in agriculture. Without bees we would not have a lot of our crops.

I felt a bit bad cutting back a potential food source for the bees, but then I looked at all the dandelions in the yard next door and realized they had a large feast prepared for them.
