Save the Beez

Hello.  Welcome.  Yesterday was World Bee Day.  I have noticed the decline of our buzzy friends.  I have noticed when the weather turns cold and wet and they vanish, only to reemerged a month later to work hard again.  We need them so badly.  Please take care of the bees.  Don't use pesticides.  They kill the good with the bad and often the good take longer to recover, so you get more bad bugs, then you spray them again!!  Cherish your dandelions for the precious early nectar they supply and the happy colours they bring to the garden.  Be brave, go wild.  

I decided to join the PaperArtsy challenge where they want to see assemblage.  I liked the tin can man in the challenge post and also Carol Fox's garden sign made me think about making a tin can to put bits in in my greenhouse.   I sprayed my can with copper laquer.  I used a stencil and some yellow acrylic on burlap fabric.  The metal flowers are from with a few half pearls.   The bee is from Rubber Dance, stamped and coloured on shrink plastic.  The legs and antennae were a bit of a shrinky dinky nightmare but we got there in the end.  I made the sentiment on ye olde typewriter.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  2. Clever creation and such a heart warming post Gail, it's lovely to see another so warm towards our ever important Bee's I too feel the same and leave all the Dandelions and flowering weeds for our Bee's.. We have a nest under our shed and they come out to investigate what I am doing in two's and three's when I'm hanging out the washing... Hugs Tracey xx
