I hope you have enjoyed todays post about Napoleon Bonaparte and his love of bees. I would like to take the oppurtunity while on this topic to talk about the growing threat to the bee population of the world.
It’s debated whether or not this quote can be traced back to Albert Einstein but it’s scary no matter who said it: “"If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live."
I encourage you to read more about this growing problem and do your part! Recently my neighborhood in London chose to plant gardens filled with bee-friendly flowers. During the fall last year I noticed all these this little bird house looking things popping up along the walk ways. When I asked the lady living across from my home she explained that they were for the bumbles to live in for fall because it would be cold and they needed a warm home too.
I’ve lovingly nicknamed these little homes the Humble Bumble Abode.
