Apparently native bees are having a rough time. Remember that we're called to care for the Earth - give 'em something to eat!

Growers are also planting long strips of native plants, like lupine, poppies and goldenrod, to feed the native bees and help them flourish.

Gardeners can do the same thing, in backyards and terraces.

“You need to have continuous blooming, especially in early spring and late fall,” Mr. Seidler said. “Plant natives with a mix of flower shapes to accommodate a variety of pollinators.”

I'm on something of a gardening kick, so I may actually take my own advice.
