Where have all my bee-utiful bees gone?
Saturday, 18 Jun 11 19°C / 66°F
This has been quite the record cold and wet spring in the Pacific NW, and along with the slow start to bloom…. comes the absence of my little pollinators. Ohhhh how I miss going out to the hardy geraniums and listening to the hummmmm of busy bees circling around in the pollen. I sit for hours photographing them behind a tripod, but this year I can count the bees I have seen on one hand!!! Literally!!!
I would love to hear everyone elses experiences around the world regarding their bee populations. I know it’s becoming a real concern in parts of the USA and Canada. This is the first year I have really seen a sharp decline. I hope to see more as the flowers get brave enough to open as our mid June highs have barely creeped over 70 degrees yet!!!!
