This week we are giving the bees the buzz they deserve! Today is #WorldBeeDay and here at the studio we have been spending the week giving the little bees the centre stage… did you know anyone, including you can help a bee out by planting a range of bee-friendly flowers in your garden so they access to nectar from March to October. Our bee friendly tea towel is a great reminder of which plants they love the most!
Honeybees also have their own dance move called the ‘waggle dance’! It took researchers at Sussex University 2 years to decode the dance, which is their way of communicating where the best source of food is to each other… have you seen a honeybee do a waggle dance? It looks like they are dancing on our printed bee fabric that we made into lots of lovely bee related gifts!
You can always save a struggling bee by putting it on a bee-friendly flower or if there are none around, mix a 50/50 ratio of white sugar (they struggle to digest brown sugar) and water, this gives them an energy boost to be able to fly back home!
To celebrate how amazing these creatures really are, we have released four unique original embroideries by Poppy that are all things bee related, guaranteed to brighten up any bee lovers day or to make great decorations these are truly one-of-a-kind and once they’re gone they’re gone…
