Why you are needed to plant flowers that bees love

Beloved Flower Lover,

The sweet nectar in a flower is sometimes forgotten or misunderstood as we go about our lives. Yet it can be a simple topic, that as we pay attention to it, can change our lives deeply. The relationship between bees, flowers and those of us who choose to help them is the focus on today’s post .

Let’s take this really slowly now.

Some dismiss flowers because of myths around their value and importance.  Yet for bees, many flowers are essential for them to be able to do what they were designed to do. Pollinate and cross pollinate.

Their pollination activity is at the heart of the plants food producing activity. It’s at the heart of us enjoying food as well as being sustained and healed by them. Food is at the heart of our daily life. And flowers are at the heart of that activity.  But why now is this coming up as an agenda item? Because hey, it can’t be a near death experience? surely?

Well they seem to be decreasing in number in certain parts of the world and we need them. Oh gosh do we so so so need them on our globe. RHS research states that one third of the food on our plates would disappear if the sorts of flowers that need pollination from bees disappeared. Their is a fine line between letting the impacts of their destruction to just continue and just level itself out naturally or to leaving it up to someone else to be responsible for our planet. Well living fully,knowing the rebalancing of this decrease can be altered simply by deciding  to plant more flowers has tiggered us to open  up our foucs and flow because  the high conseuqences of this situion has caught our concentration.

So over the last few bank holidays in the UK, we have began to grow bee loving lavender and Buddleia into our garden and thought of you.

It might be a risk to you to actually plant flowers. Why? socially you might be a bit shy to get into the garden. The risk trigger of getting into the garden might not be novel enough. Boring, not interesting. You might notice you feel great after you face this challenge and achieve. Yes to see it from a new and inspiring point of view, makes remaining open to being a loving presence to yourself and others as exhilarating. Perhaps!

Well some of the lists we have offered in this blog might break it down into a new and inspiring way. We thought you  might enjoy a list of plants you can grow in your own garden season by season. Yes it might be new to you. That’ s exciting.Overcome that fear as you prepare to plant. You may need to adapt these lists according to the region of the world that you are in, as you use them to inspire your own planting plans for yourself and others.

    I read that the dandelion is very important to bees and we should not rip it out. In fact a dandelion in full bloom as yellow flower is rather beautiful! Bees are so important! Thanks for a great post!
