Yellow Flowers and Bees

I love my yellow blossoms – on my lilies and my Coreopsis:

Below, look in the upper right corner to see Mr. Finn trying to sneak out of the photo:)

BUT…. I also love my yellow blossoms on my squash and pumpkins!  Check out the little pollinator in the middle:

I’m so thankful when I see the bees.  I am concerned about the danger of the bees’ future, for if we lose the bees, we’re in serious trouble!

Does anyone have experience with bee-keeping?  I’m just scratching the surface, but I would love to do it.  Maybe Mason Bees to start….I’ve heard that Honey Bees can be a mixed blessing, especially if bears are anywhere nearby.  We have those gorgeous Black Bears in my hills, so I’m not really sure if that’s what we’ll do.  Although, we really love honey

Yummmmm!  All I can think of is “Pooh Bear, Winnie the Pooh Bear!”

Have a sweet day!
