Thanks for stopping by

If you are interested in my little book, you can find it on Amazon.

Now that I have your attention, please consider supporting pollinators as they are very important to our earth and our food supply. Plant flowers that are native to your area, and stay far away from Round-Up and other chemicals. See my post below for information on raising solitary bees.

Thank you for reading! =)

 

past / future

8CBD0214-8F02-4FFF-9622-530F180BDF61While my usual topic of conversation is history, today I would like to look forward, instead of backward.

In honour Of Earth Day, I would love to encourage you to do whatever you can to protect the future of our planet, in whatever way you are called. You may be the go-to neighbor for organising local clean-up events. Perhaps you ensure that your household is fastidious about recycling. You may be that coworker who is a terrific example to others, with your BPA-free reusable water bottle. Or maybe you have a passion for educating others on keeping our oceans clean for marine life!

As far as the past, English history is especially close to my heart (as you know!). My affinity for the Tudors is no secret. I also adore reading about anything that falls under “medieval,” Marie Antoinette, and the general history of the British monarchy.

When I set my sights on the future of our earth, my special love is protecting pollinators. And to narrow that down even more, I’m wild about raising native (solitary) bees. They are gentle (no stinging!), extremely effective pollinators, easy to raise, and – let’s be honest – they are absolutely adorable.

See that pic above? That’s one of my sweet little leafcutter bees from last summer, practically smiling for the camera! I’m currently working with my mason bees, lovely little cuties that will fly in mild spring temperatures to pollinate the fruit trees that pop up this time of year.

For more information on keeping these hard-working and darling critters, check out the website of Crown Bees. I get most of my materials from them and they have loads of good info.

Whatever you do to love and preserve our earth, keep doing it. Do it with fervor and with the generosity to encourage others. Many of us thrive on learning about our past, but we cannot ignore our future.
