Remember this sad thing? I had a vision of a giant flower garden buzzing with bees (I did buy a “Save the Bees” seed mix, after all) and a lovely addition to our backyard. I honestly didn’t know if it would work.
But it did. I woke up every morning to water this patch of dirt, and kept it moist in the evening, too. I sang to the plants. (Not really, but I’ve been seriously tempted to…) Now, we have a lovely flower garden!!!
I’m doing my part to save the bees, one flower at a time. I chose to post today because when I walked outside this morning, our very first sunflower had bloomed. I ran back inside and told Greg he had to come look.
Bonus: there was a bee. Hallelujah.
Now that’s what I call progress.
And not giving up… even when you start with just a pile of dirt that doesn’t look like much.

One flower at a time. One bee at a time. Just like the hummingbird, you are doing the best you can! ;)

Are you raising some bees? I have a friend in Alabama who is raising some. I keep waiting for some honey :-)
