Bees make our World go round; they keep the Environment sustainable, they pollinate our flowers, and they provide us with Honey!
I am fortunate in that my parents have their own bees (60,000 bees!!!) in their garden, and a beekeeper to come and help with them in the Summertime. I am so grateful that we are able to receive fresh local honey right from my backyard!
I realize it may be difficult for everyone to have their own bees, so if that is not an option, here are some other ways you can help.
- Buy local honey from your local farmers market
- Keep a water cup with sugar outside during the summer for the bees; they get thirsty!
- Don’t kill them! They are more scared of you than you are of them; if they get near you, be calm, and carry on. ❤

Inform yourself and watch some fun + informational videos too!
Fall in Love with the Bees; I recommend watching this fun movie if you haven’t seen it yet, called the Bee Movie starring the hilarious Jerry Seinfeld. It will surely make you Love them.
Here is a video of my parents’ beehive that I took just a few days ago! 🙂
