Gardening for the Bees, and Why It’s a Good Thing – On the House

Gardening for the Bees, and Why It’s a Good Thing

By on October 29, 2014
I stopped gardening for myself years ago. It probably happened about the time I saw a bumblebee pulling itself along the ground one fall morning; once it crossed from shade into light, it stopped, seeming to lay out as if on a beach. After I spent a few minutes watching and waiting, the bee finally took off, perhaps to the last of the asters or to a place with no gardener who has a staring problem. Since then I’ve had my face so far into blooms that I’ve felt the turbulence of a bee’s wings tickle my peach fuzz — I even once found a bee hanging on to my jeans (it must have been on me for hours as I walked around the house and sat on the couch).
