The BEES need our HELP!

The number of bees has seriously declined! Click here to find out why and how it affects us all. It's not just about getting less honey...Approximately one third of what we eat is pollinated by bees! The website gives advice on how we can HELP!

Among the supporters is the Women's Institute, their campaign is called SOS for honeybees

PLEASE take a moment to have a look at both links
. We NEED bees!


A bientôt!

Hi Isabelle,
A very worthy post as bees are a lot more important than a lot of people realise and we cannot afford to lose them!
Thank you for the lovely comment you left me; I hope that you get your dream in Devon one day as it is such a lovely place! x

Intersting video. I hadn't realized the problem. I got stung 2 times this summer so they must be on the attack! ;-)

I will go to the website. I care more about the problem than the stupid little stingers I got... Thanks Isabelle!!

Yes I will definitely go to the site. CCD is a big problem which is what I think this is refering to.

It is a really frightening propspect isn't it. I agree with you wholeheartedly thanks for helping to raise awareness.

I loved your Nostalgia at the Stonehouse purchases Isabelle, lovely cottages! I must check that out too!

Have a lovely weekend,

Hello Isabelle,
That is a pretty scary link to read. It's horrible to think overuse of chemical sprays might have contributed. If we affect one species so badly it can only impact on us. I don't know what the bee situation is in Australia but I will try to find out. Enjoy your weekend. xx

I had lots of bees on my plants this summer till only a little time ago but then I don't know if I would have more. I will have a look.
Have a nice evening

I find it a little difficult to believe bees are in decline... they've been an abundance of them in my area. It's amazing though how they affect other horticultrual life.
