We are noticing how much the bees love the yellow kale flowers at this time of year, when there are not so many other flowers yet for foraging. The kale (which we are letting go to seed from last year) in our grow tunnel bed is in full bloom, and constantly covered with a loud buzzing frenzy of gorgeous bees (many types of bees too, we saw loads of bumbles, a few honey bees, some small native bees, a sweat bee). And I get to continue my fascination with bees, and trying to capture their energy on camera.
To learn more about bees and urban beekeeping (the top bar method) consider taking our Beekeeping with Intention workshop, Sat June 11. Register here.
