There's something I've noticed around my garden this year and it is a bit disturbing- the distinct lack of bees.
Usually my butterfly bush is full of bees and butterflies at this time of year. So much so, that I have to duck and dodge them or risk being stung. But not this year. It makes me sad.
It also makes me want to get a hive or two and place them in the corner of our back yard. Without bees, how will my garden grow?
Now, to convince the hubs. :)
