Bees, as a species, are on the decline and numbers are beginning to drop into the endangered category. Attracting bees to your garden or yard is an important way to participate in boosting the declining bee population, which will allow them to continue to do the work they were designed to do- pollinating crops that make up 90% of the world’s food resources. By bringing brightly colored flowers (think of sunflowers and lavender) to your garden, you will offer a safe environment for bees to live. If gardening isn’t your thing, or you simply don’t have the space for a garden, the floral specialists at Gordon Boswell Flowers recommend including some bee-friendly flowers and plants on your outdoor porch or patio.
