Let's Save the Bees...

I stopped in Anthropologie the other day because a friend of mine told me that they had paper bees in their newest display. So, of course I get in the car and drive over to see them. I didn't find paper bumble bees. But I was so drawn to their "bee" theme. They had potted lavender, A display from floor to ceiling of honey, fields, books on bees and old flea market finds of bee props. The sweetest was packaged lavender seeds with a handmade tag that said
"Save the Bees"

Sure enough, this morning as the sun welcomed me with it's warmth I look down in my lavender plant and find this friendly little bee. I never knew that lavender is the main flower bees are attracted to. I think I will have to plant some more!
I'm sure most of you know how never is the history of humanity have we seen so many bees die. I know, it's sad. But this morning when I found this little bee it put a smile on my face. And it does feel good knowing I planted that just for him. I hope you can find a little place in your garden and experience the same thing I just did. ;)
