Mike Singleton wrote a piece on the subject of "No Mow May' about two weeks earlier than this was published. I wasn't aware of Mike's piece or I certainly would have chosen an at least slightly different name; sorry about that Mike. Here's a link to Mr. Singleton's work, just in case you haven't seen it already: https://vocal.media/earth/no-mow-may
We're all headed the same way with a stream of loaded bees returning to the hive in the other direction. It's not far; our Queen was brilliant for picking a location close enough to the one beautiful field full of flowers in this whole neighbourhood.
The other colonies have to travel much further over all those flat, green lawns to get to the single field that feeds us all. This time of year, it's so hard to find food sources.
But there's one family of humans who let the flowers grow. We'll never sting them!
My wife picked some Forget-Me-Nots which no longer sported their yellow centres today. She told me that once the pollinators get their food from the flowers Forget-Me-Nots lose their yellow signal to the bees, so they won't come back when there's no more food available. Cool! It got me thinking about the real value of "No Mow May".
