Are bees truly busy?

Certainly honey bees are. A hive flies 55,000 miles to make a single pound of honey.

First, they must visit 2,000,000 flowers! Each bee, though, only produces 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in its entire life!

Bees are attracted to various flowers for different reasons. They favor blue lobelia for its many close-together flowers. With all the exercise they get, that's no wonder. Check out this pretty blue perennial in our plant nursery.
