Apple Tree is Buzzing with Bees!

Spring is nearly here and bees are already visiting my garden. They have been spotted on various plants  but I’ve managed to capture one as it was visiting my 3-in-1 apple tree, in the center of the photoIMG_2956. Its friend also visited the tree but was camera-shy!

What I have found over the years is if I keep weeds around a bit longer, especially flowering weeds, they attract bees.  I think it is a good trade-off to have a less tidy garden in exchange for having more bees in my garden, which is essential for the health of gardens. If seen from this perspective and managed, weeds can serve a positive role in the garden.

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Apple seeds are highly toxic if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
