Blake Shelton is singing this song and I thought as it is National Honey Bee Day I'd entertain you with this sweet video. Remember to buy local honey helps to save bees. Petition links are below if you care to sign some or all. Thanks so much.

provide a honey bee haven with access to pesticide-free food, shelter and water. It doesn't take much space a few containers of the right kinds of plants tucked into your garden, on a balcony or front stoop, will get you started.

Protect bees from pesticides. Pesticides kill beneficial insects including pollinators and natural enemies that control common pests like aphids. Certain pesticides, including neonicotinoids, are highly toxic to honey bees in particular. Instead of using pesticides, explore organic ways to grow healthy plants, such as using compost for healthy soil and controlling pests with homemade remedies and biocontrols like ladybugs.

Provide a variety of food for bees. Consider clustered plantings with staggered blooming times so there is food throughout the year and particularly in the late summer and fall. Native plants are always best, and inter-planting and hedgerows provide additional forage on farms.

Provide a year-round, clean source of water for bees. This can be a river, pond, irrigation system, rainwater collection system or small-scale garden water features. Shallow water sources can provide more than enough water for bees, without creating opportunities for mosquitoes to breed.

Provide shelter for bees. Leave some ground undisturbed and untilled and some dead trees and plants on the property for wild bees to nest in.

Good advice and fun video Dandelion. They also love drought resistant plants like sage and rosemary and lavender.

Thank Mariette.....I thought it went well with the theme today. Was worth the watch but if others wanted to listen while they signed it was a treat for the ears as well.

Thanks everyone and to those who took the time to watch the video. I like a little Country too and it was a nice song with a story we could all relate to, all set around local honey. I just thought it was perfect for the day.

So much bad news thought we could use a little light entertainment.
