French Lavenders Attract Bees!

Gardening shows and news articles often tout the bee-attracting quality of some plants, but have you taken a moment to see these important creatures in action? Often, we take for granted that bees will just “do their thing” while we are busy going about our lives, but when they stop showing up, gardens (and people and other animals) suffer.

I love when bees are in my garden, toiling away, helping to make my garden thrive. When I see bees, it means my garden is healthy. I am very happy when I see bees!

My French lavender plants (also known as Spanish lavender) are the latest beneficiary of bees.

They are now flowering and gorgeous and I owe bees a tremendous amount of gratitude (for their help with sustaining these and other plants, as well as my fruit trees).
