Pretty cool initiative in Aucklands CBD in this community garden and picnic area supported by @fortheloveofbeesnz
It also includes a community fridge which the local food businesses donate their leftovers to.
It's attracted the more vulnerable members of society in our "freedom sleepers" (which I suppose was the aim) but has also attracted some pretty antisocial behavior.
Have tried to come up with a solution for this but I'm stumped?
Like 🐝🐝, killer whales are known to communicate with their communities through dance.
Creatures big and small work together as one on this planet, can you imagine what this Universe would be like if humans did the same?
Hitching a ride in the rain. This little one found her way out of the box when moving some hives. The bees all stayed calm but it was a good lesson in checking that all entrances where closed tight when driving down the road!
A little bee biology for your hump day🐪🐝
Social bees (like honeybees and bumblebees) are very interesting because they have developed castes within the sexes 🍯🌷
Speaking in the strictly biological sense, bees have two sexes: male and female.
Of course solitary bees have the two sexes as well, however they don’t develop such castes.
The genome of Queen bees and Worker bees is essentially the same, therefore it makes the development of this hive hierarchy very fascinating. 👑
-Male bees have giant 👀 so they can spot a potential Queen in flight
-Queen bees become 👑 by exclusively consuming royal jelly from birth (the other baby bees are only fed royal jelly for a few days)
How great does this lemon balm plant look? @twogreensquarefeet grew it from seed on her balcony. You can grow your own with our lemon balm kit - it comes with seeds, germination pots and soil, plant labels and instructions (literally just add water 💦). Plant 📸 by @twogreensquarefeet; Karrikins Lemon Balm Kit available in November. Sign up to get notice of launch, link in bio.

Today we were HUSTLING. A frost is coming and we spent the day cutting every last flower and foraging for this weekend’s wedding. Tucking everything in the cooler for the last time.
Next week we start the task I dread the most: putting the beds to bed. Pulling fabric, gathering stakes, composting, and digging dahlias all stand between my tired body and a winter of rest. (Oh, and did I mention washing 8 million buckets? *sigh*)
Let’s do this. 👊🏻
