"Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature." - Gerard de Nerval
Flowers are not only beautiful, but they serve a role in our ecosystem that is so very
important. They attract birds and insects that act not only as pollinators but they also keep away
predators so that the plants themselves can aid the birds and insects in their own growth.
A win, win in my book.
Did you know that in a bees lifetime she will make only 1/12th teaspoon of honey and
that it takes about 60lbs. of honey to sustain a bee hive through the winter months.
That....is a lot of flower visits to be sure.
So go forth my friends, and plant lots and lots of flowers!! ;)
That's a win, win for us too!
