    The bees are back! I was out in one of my rain gardens yesterday and a big bumble bee flew by..and then came back and landed on a grape hyacinth…a sure sign of spring and things to come! This photo reminds me, also, that I signed up to grow “van gogh” sunflowers and save the seeds for the seed library… I have found that russian sage attracts every bee out just buzzes mid summer with all kinds of bees….bee amazing..plant some bee friendly plants in your garden this year! Herbs attract them all! I plant the herb thyme in the cracks of the rocks around my little greenhouse and the bees are always there to greet me! Rose petal thyme is beautiful and attracts them, also. There are over 300 varieties of thyme! My favorite is “lime thyme” a bright green…so pretty..bee a good gardener and plant some herbs for those little hard workers!

    Here in North Central PA I have not seen a single bee, yet. It is so encouraging to hear that others are seeing them already. Our winter was so harsh, a green house consultant has warned that we may find we have lost a lot of our plantings. My holly bush is filled with brown, crumbling leaves. Have lost 2 evergreens. No signs of new growth from any of my hosta plants yet. Trying to maintain a positive outlook and keep telling myself, “They are only delayed!” I hope, I hope, I hope!

    This photo is a work of art! Here in France, Spring is just happening and I have been looking for bees but haven’t seen many of them.
