I see a few honeybees in our backyard drinking water out of the pool. Sometimes they have a hard time getting out, so we "lend a hand." They've never stung. But, I am cautious, because we have had several attacks in the past few months around town. Enormous hives have been found with Africanized bees, and many people have been stung dozens of times while trying to flee.

Thanks, Cal...I'm doing all I can. I've seen a few bees in my basil flowers. They like it, too!

No herbicides or pesticides in my area for years, and I have flowering trees, plants, and even weeds flowering.

All kinds of bees are welcome in my garden, and gently shown the way out if they come into the house, which they do!

This evening, I will be planting coreopsis in our front and back yards. We hope it will bring the bees so they can pollinate our tomatoes.
