Today 4 of my beautiful sunflowers bloomed! They’re indeed my favorite flower of all. As I sat in my terrace admiring the beauty of my ladies, my beautiful sunflowers, with my mother along with my chihuahua and the new room-mate the cat, I notice there are more bees than the usual. I’m a very nature person and believe that having more bees around is actually positive, which in fact It is!. I’m not actually afraid of them, I don’t kill them or yell like a bimbo whenever there’s a Bee flying around. They are not just ‘bugs’ you see…
We humans can’t leave without bees, we NEED them to survive. Bees are essential to the human food, and not just the honey they produce, you see, insects supports one-third of human crop growth, and of this number, honeybees are responsible for 80%. What others sort of crops? Apples, nuts, avocados, soybeans, watermelons, cucumbers, avocado, broccoli, strawberries and peaches AMONG others. If we do not protect them or do something about it, we might end up reverting to diets composed solely of bread and water. Oh and since the cows depend on bees to pollinate the plants they eat, we’d also be without meat if all bees died off. Simple, No bees + No pollinate=No food.
Plant anything in your garden or any kind of flowers, help improve the colony collapse disorder (since we already destroyed so much of their habitat..) and please don’t kill them, they’re not a plague.
To conclude, while I was admiring my ladies as I said above, I enjoyed the workaholic bees pollinate my beautiful sunflower garden, and of course I took some photos. I’m so happy I get to see my flowers bloom before I move to Dubai.
“If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth,
man would have no more than four years to live”.
