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 littlest things (Mar 20, '15)
    Pretty soon only the biggest bonanzas of blooms and armfuls of harvests will knock our socks off but right now, on the first official day of spring, it doesn’t take much to get us excited. Any evidence of the growing season, no matter how small, is huge. Especially considering there’s snow in our forecast today (ugh-gain), piles of old stuff jammed in […]
  • Thaw (Mar 11, '15)
    Suddenly it seems like it won’t be too long before we see the ground again… Fingers crossed. Is winter on its way out of your garden too?
