I remember when I was 8 years old, I was playing by a pond and shaking my hand. At one moment I felt this massive pain in my hand, I checked my fingers and yes a bee just stung my finger. No amount of cry would calm me down. It was super painful. After that incident I was a little scared of bees, I would always keep my distance or literally run from them. Till two or three years ago, I kept learning more and more about them, and how dead bees kept showing up in our backyard. You always hear about them in news but never truly understand how bad things are until you kind of experience and see dead honeybees everywhere. They are super important for nature, remember Bee Movie. 😀
Yesterday, as I was looking at these sunflowers, I noticed bees around it. It made me happy. That’s why I wanted to write about it, and share my happiness.
If you have a backyard please make sure, you plant lots of flowers for bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. Looking at flowers and seeing hummingbirds is so refreshing.
Hopefully after reading this you will become more passionate toward bees.
