Bees and Lavender

Watching out for bees

Bees love lavender. When it’s time to harvest lavender, the bees are busy at work. But will they sting you? Our granddaughter is making sure of that.

Harvesting lavender by hand is a skill in several ways. You don’t want to get stung and you really don’t want to get cut by the sharp sickle blade that’s in your hand. Bees are everywhere but they have one thing on their minds…honey! That’s actually a good thing. No one seems to get stung. But watch out for that sickle!
