I was terrified by bees as a child. My mother's advice: just stay still - they won't hurt you if you don't move. And then one day I was sitting on my swing and a bee came along and rested on my shoulder. I was terrified, but I sat bone still, breathless, waiting for the bee to move along. And then it stung me. For years after, I just flailed like an idiot every time a bee was in sight. Now I love them, I welcome them, and they fascinate me.
Today we celebrate bees and the awesome little friends they are. Here are some bee facts that will make your Friday even more magical than Fridays already are. And if you want to see more bees, of course go check out the Flow Magazine Friends of Flow Pinterest Board!
Happy Friday! And just remember: Beeeeeeeee yourself!
