All a buzz
I saw this line recently on the internet, "At the forefront of everyone's mind this week is the health of bees."
Honeybees are used throughout this country to pollinate hundreds of crops, from apples and almonds to soybeans and strawberries. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, about $15 billion in crops are pollinated by honeybees.
I don't actually think about it all that much unless there's another scary article in the newspaper but it must be entering my consciousness. I'm working on a painting that has bees, their cells and a host of firing neurons.
Then I walked out my front door today. Here's the artfitti I saw. Buzz, buzz, buzz.
