A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Lavender and the Bees

Poem 111 – Emily Dickinson

The bee is not afraid of me,
I know the butterfly;
The pretty people in the woods
Receive me cordially.

The brooks laugh louder when I come,
The breezes madder play.
Wherefore, mine eyes, thy silver mists?
Wherefore, O summer’s day?

  1. Nice pics of the bees. I have lavender too and it’s really nice to see the bees. I had been worried about the bees lately, but when I bought my lavender plant they were all over it. Bee’s are beautiful and we need to appreciate them.

  2. Awesome photos.

  3. Great bee photos! I am jealous of your lavender–I can’t seem to keep it alive. Any hints or secrets?

      This is the first one I’ve kept alive! This one has been with us since last May – it stayed outside all winter and I didn’t water it at all. Only after it started to flower and the weather got warmer did I have to start watering it again. I think the trick is to let it dry out between waterings, which is why I’ve left it in a container.
