Bee-lieve it or not my attempts at luring bees to our garden were actually successful! We have a WHOLE NEST of BEES!

They’re cellophane bees aka probably one of the best kinds of bees you can have! They don’t sting (unless really provoked) and they’re pollinators. They don’t make honey but they do make a sort of plastic-y substance that I hear scientists are looking into as a plastic substitute? Amazing! Well done, bees.

Since they’re in the front garden facing the street I put up a sign to let people know they won’t sting.

Here’s a little video of them in action!

I love them so much.
