Honey Bees in the Summer Breeze* will be a show to remember! The sweet smells of summer accompanied by cheerful marigolds, brilliant coreopsis, and sunny celosia will be on display in this monochromatic floral exhibit. Take a walk through the honeycomb beds filled with bright yellow and gorgeous golden petals –– and while among the flowers you can even learn a “bee dance” to experience how honey bees communicate with each other to find nectar!
Did you know that bees and other pollinators bring us 1/3 of every bite of food that
we eat? Come and enjoy the fruits of their labor and learn all about the importance of
Honey Bees in the Summer Breeze !
***This beautiful floral display shows all the ways to attract beneficial bees and pollinators to your garden…but has NO REAL BEES on display.***
