Save the Bees!

I've asked for a Bee house for my birthday.  If you didn't know, we're losing the bees!  SERIOUSLY!  In some areas the bee population has declined up to 85% and nobody knows why ... ooohhhhh spoooookkyy ... So plant flowers to attract bees!  I am noticing a lot of my plants have bees going to them, and I am SO EXCITED!  Here is a picture of a nice fat juicy bee sucking on my rhododendrum.  GO BEES!

FYI:  33% of the food we eat depends on pollination from bees
