When we first started gardening upon moving to Cambridge 3 years ago, Matt intentionally chose flowers for the front garden that would attract bees and butterflies, like beebalm and sunflowers. Since then, our little garden has grown; we’ve added a variety of other plants and flowers, including coneflowers and my accidental planting of some drumstick allium bulbs (thinking they were narcissus), which the bees seem to especially love, contributing to this bee-feast. There are dozens and dozens of bumble bees, honey bees, and all sorts of bees buzzing about doing their bee thang in this front garden. Seeing the crazy amounts of bee activity of the last couple of days, it has finally dawned on me – we have a bee garden. And this gives me a little bit o’ joy.
