Honey Bees are essential for life. That's a scientific fact.

They scare a lot of people because they "sting" however that isn't their goal. 

Their main goal is to sustain their life...and to do so, they look for places to collect nectar to pollenate plants.

I'm doing some research as I type on ways I can help the endangered species and one way is to plant flowering plants around your home that honey bees like. 

Which, is an amazing thing because I've been wanting to plant a garden on my back patio!

So I did a quick Google search and these are the flowers thehoneybeeconservancy.org recommends.

Pansies

Pussy Willow

Siberian Squill

Snowdrops

Peony

Milkweed

Bee Balm
