I hadn't seen a single honeybee in more than two years and, yes, the bumblebee population has increased some. I've been sowing native wildflower seeds since last year, and I also grew about 100 sunflowers this year. I've also left some areas that I used to cut grow up in weeds. A flower is a flower, and I want to give the bees as much variety as I can. This year I finally saw honeybees! Maybe not as many as I used to see, but definitely a significant number. I plan to add more and more flowering plants and trees every year, just to see if my efforts are helping bring them back. The world can't live without pollinators!

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.
