Did you know that we rely on 1/3 of our food supply from Honey Bees? Over the past few winters more than 25% of the bee population has disappeared and this will greatly impact our natural food supply if something isn't done soon.
Haagen-Dazs is doing something to help and so can you. Visit their site http://www.helpthehoneybees.com/ to learn more about what you can do. You can even create your very own cute little honey bee. In the meantime head on outside and plant some bee friendly plants and your garden can help increase the honey bee population.
Here is a list of some bee friendly plants:
- Trumpet Vine (one of my favorites)
- Cone Flowers
So the next time you see a Honey Bee in your yard remember that they have an important job and look at them a little bit differently. I know I will. Which plant are you going to plant for our Honey Bees?
