9780857840240: The Bee-Kind Garden: Apian Wisdom for Your Garden (Wise words)

Bees are vital for the future of the planet; without their dedicated pollinating many crops would eventually fail. This delightfully illustrated book reveals many facets of their lives, including homes, flight patterns, and defense. It also describes how to attract bees to your garden. The lives of bees are interwoven with our own, but how much do you know about them? Which scents do bees prefer? How do bees transport pollen? How far can bees fly? Do specific colors attract bees? Do bees prefer native flowers? Then there is honey—a near-miraculous elixir that in earlier generations was an integral part of life as a sweetener and food preserver. The Bee-Kind Garden provides fascinating snippets of poetry and history, showing how the bee is entwined with our history and culture; it is dedicated to bees and to ensuring that they continue to live in harmony with humans in bee-friendly gardens.
