The shop's abuzz!

There's a new print in my shop!  It's all abuzz...  



I love bees for their honey (of course!), their industrious nature and silent cooperation, but also because they're so significant to our food sources. According to the National Resource Defense Council, "Bees are one of a myriad of other animals, including birds, bats, beetles, and butterflies, called pollinators. Pollinators transfer pollen and seeds from one flower to another, fertilizing the plant so it can grow and produce food. Cross-pollination helps at least 30 percent of the world’s crops and 90 percent of our wild plants to thrive. Without bees to spread seeds, many plants—including food crops—would die off."

Sometimes the smallest things are the most important. Bzzzzz......
