Save the bees, spread the word...

Greetings blogfriends. How are you doing?  I am worried.  These last couple of weeks everywhere I go I happen to see dead bees. At the beginning,  the witch in me took it as a bad omen.  Bad news and worry on the way, which came true.  But then the bees kept dieing.  I wanted to think it was the sudden changes in the weather or a coincidence.  But even if my experience was a fluke we all know that bees are dieing and the horrific things that this entails for our planet. I never use pesticides, I plant many flowers a year and I leave sugar water on leaves and flowers now and then. I try to buy organic except for when the money difference seems astronomical. But I thought,  if one of you reads this and leaves some sugar water out there,  or plants some seeds,  that it might make a difference for our little friends and so, here I am.
On a magical note,  bees are used in many love spells they represent a love that stings and makes the bound part obedient and willing to make sacrifices. They also represent  and are protected by the fae, so if you are using elemental magic always take care of them. Their coming over one's head means good luck and happiness. Honey is used in many spells to seal something with sweetness or abundance. Never kill a bee for a spell this will have repercussions.  Always,  seek them on the ground in autumn but make sure they are already dead and you played no part on their death.
So, dear witchfriends the next time you light a candle say a prayer for protection for them. They need all the help they can get

There is such a bad epidemic going on right now of bees dying off. If they go, what will be next? We need the bees and butterflies to pollinate the flowers, fruit trees and crops. This is mostly because of insecticides and the ill-advised on nature and that it needs us now to help it to survive. There is a way to feed the bees and butterflies. Take a well-sealed garbage can top, turn it over and fill it with sugar water that you use for hummingbirds. Place clean river rocks and fake colorful flowers this will attract hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies. Hang it from a tree by drilling three holes and putting a wire or rope through it. This idea will feed the bees and other insects through the spring and summer. When you refill it make sure to clean it so they have a fresh clean feeder.

I understand why you are worried. Someone must be doing something or spreading something that's killing them. I hope they stop.

Do keep us informed.

It's happening all over the world!
I used to have a hive. I might have to go and get some more
Without bees we have just a few years before we all starve
Unless of course the politicians kill us all off first
But that's another post

Yes, I'm worried about the bees too. I think the problem is pesticides used in agriculture that should be banned.

Around here it has just been too cold for bees lately. Spring started out early and warm, and then we had night frosts once more. Several apple orchards are strugglign as well because the frost killed many of the blossoms. :-/

I've noticed during the past few years the bees that hang around the fruit stands are becoming less and less. Humans are destroying nature piece by piece.
