The bees

Seattle summers are the perfect climate for growing lavender. The patch of lavender in my front yard practically exploded into life earlier in the season and the yard was full of happy bees all summer long.

If you're paying attention, you know the bees are disappearing and you know what dire results it would mean for us and our food supply if they disappeared completely. I know little patches of flowers in yards isn't going to solve such a huge problem, but seeing them there helps me to stay mindful of the things we need to change and grateful that there's still time to change them.
