Honeybees and lavendar

You may have heard that the honeybees seem to be disappearing in the last couple years. That is a bit alarming since we depend on them for pollination of some of our produce. I recently read an article that encouraged readers to plant the kind of plants and flowers that attract bees. Lavendar is one of them. My lavendar plant gets bigger every year, and the purple blossoms are out. Today I saw three bees on my plant! Woo hoo! I took this photo of one of them, I am very impressed with our camera and how well this turned out. I had it zoomed way in to get this shot. Keep coming honeybees, we need you back!!
