We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into May with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is about pollinators. As you’ll read in the story, pollinators are responsible for one-third of all the food humans eat. And if you’ve been following the news in recent years, you’ll know there has been a huge die-off of bee colonies. Now backyard gardeners, among others, are banding together to create pollinator-friendly gardens and their ranks are growing by leaps and bounds. I am taking this article to heart and my family will be joining the one million-plus people helping pollinators to do their job.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Shilpa Garg, Inderpreet UppalPeter NenaLizbeth Hartz, and Eric Lahti.

      The die-off of bee colonies has been a concerning issue for a while now, and I’ve read many theories of why it’s happening. It’s probably a combination of reasons. I’m excited to learn about plants that are native to this area and get them in the ground for the pollinators. Thanks for visiting!

      Thanks, Robbie. Today I have an appointment down by the local Cooperative Extension office, so I’m planning to stop in and get some information on local plants.
