Beautiful bees

There are so many brilliant ways to be a bee-friend - you can grow some flowers that are rich in nectar, ready for them to pollenate. You can leave wild flowers unpicked so that bees can gather their goodness. And if you have a garden, you can leave a little pile of scrap wood and sticks in a hidden corner, so bees can use it as a shelter if they need to.
