Good news on tiny wings!

More good news…

So our broccoli crop had some problems this year and went to flower after the first yield.  Yesterday, my four-year-old grandson went over to see if any more broccoli was growing and he discovered that the flowers were being visited by at least two dozen honey bees! I am so glad that my lack of skill at growing broccoli resulted in a feast for some honey bees. I took this picture this morning, but it was so windy that there were no bees.  I hope my sweet, little, winged farmers come back soon. They do so much more for us than we know. As a child, I was taught to fear bees, but really what we should all fear is a world without honey bees.

Here is a link to a brief article about what would happen in a world without bees.http://www.naturalnews.com/032296_honey_bees_pollinators.html

About What a Heart Can Hold

I'm Jan Krause Greene - writer, peace activist and lover of the earth. I formed my opinions about life at an early age and they haven't really changed much since then - I believe war does not create lasting solutions, love will be the real revolution, and the human heart can expand until it holds love for the whole world. I have been a teacher, a newspaper columnist, a bank teller, a house cleaner, an executive director of a non-profit dedicated to education advocacy, a diversity trainer, AIDS activist, a group facilitator, and a waitress. Whatever it took to raise 5 kids and remain true to my values. I can't carry a tune, but I love to sing and don't know any steps, but I love to dance!
