As the warm summer days melt into August, you may have noticed a larger variety of bees and other insects in your garden or neighborhood. This isn’t a bad thing- in fact, bees are completely necessary to our ecosystem. Their pollinating activity accounts for 90% of the world’s food sources. However, they are starting to become an endangered species, in part due to climate change and habitat loss, but especially due to the overuse of pesticides on flowers and crops. Adrian Durban Florist encourages you to limit your use of pesticides in your own garden, and buy farm fresh, local flowers whenever possible. We have some excellent choices to recommend!
Include flowers in your garden like the ones featured here in A Cheerful Mix! Bouquet. This fresh ensemble of bright colors and varying blossoms will attract bees to visit and stay. Or place this gorgeous bouquet on an outdoor patio or picnic table to invite our pollinating friends to a safe and bee-friendly environment.
Consider playing a part in saving the bees, and in turn our natural food sources, by choosing flowers grown naturally and pesticide-free. The organic process behind the flowers we create is as beautiful as the blooms themselves. You’ll feel good knowing your flowers from Adrian Durban Florist are such an environmentally conscious decision!
