honey bee on flower

[ˈpäləˌnādər] pollinator

something that moves pollen from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma of a flower

My foray into gardening this year didn’t mean just planting vegetables to feed us. I wanted the bees to have their own oasis. With ongoing reports about their decline, planting a package of seeds seemed a small thing to do. My garden is wildly unmanicured but for me, judging by the variety of bees it hosts, I’m calling it a success.
