Bees in Your Garden

Bees in Your Garden

Thursday April 11,  11AM
Location: Living Room

During Daffodil Days, Blithewold invites you to spend some time enjoying the gardens, and then join us for a special presentation all about the humble bee. In addition to encouraging you to “smell the roses,” Jackie Marro would urge you to “take time to see the bees.” The over 400 species of bees native to North America, along with the European honey bees, are the most efficient and predictable pollinators. This presentation will introduce you to bees and their life cycles, including how to attract and keep them in your garden.

Jackie, a beekeeper, maintains large gardens in Rhode Island and Vermont, including the George Aiken Wildflower Trail at the Bennington Museum in Vermont. In her spare time she films and photographs bees and butterflies as well as flora of all sorts.

The lecture will take place in Blithewold’s Living Room. After the talk tea with honey and scones will be served on the breakfast porch.

  • The Shop at Blithewold (Nov 18, '14)
    If you’ve visited Blithewold during our Christmas season before, I’m sure you’ve noticed the cheery, little shop tucked away in the Breakfast Porch. The Shop at Blithewold normally lives in the Visitor’s Center, but at Christmastime it moves to the Breakfast Porch and nearly triples in size, allowing them to carry more fun, festive, Christmas […]
  • Maple candy (Nov 14, '14)
    One day last week it seemed as if the switch that turns on the Japanese maples was flipped. We all noticed it. And I think we all tried to burn their color on our retinas (and camera sensors) in an attempt to hold us over for winter. And evidently, winter arrived this morning. We weren’t […]
