Do you like Almonds....

I watched "The Last Beekeeper" on Planet Earth this morning while my kids were still asleep. I have been walking around with such a heavy heart all day. Does anyone really see what is happening....

This annual bee migration isn't just a curiosity; it's the glue that holds much of modern agriculture together. Without the bees' pollination services, California's almond trees — the state's top export crop — would produce 40 pounds of almonds per acre; with the bees, they can generate 2,400 pounds. Honeybees provide the same service for more than 100 other crops, from lettuce to cranberries to oranges to canola, up and down the West Coast.

This was just a paragraph of the thousands that are being written about the honeybee and the Colony Collapse Disorder. Our Life as we know it would drastically change for the worse. Bees pollinate so much of what we eat in this country and around the world.

In the next few weeks...I will be gathering up information and hopefully have a new website up for my life with bees and what we can all do to partipate in helping this creature that has brought so much fun and joy in my life.

and remember...

The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others Saint John Chrysostom
