    Interestingly, city bees might be better off than bees on the countryside, because there you often have monocultures and tons of pesticides/herbicides. Many people have flowers on their balkonies and avoid chemicals, so the balkony landscape of cities is often an actual paradise for bees.



    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Oh, we have some wild flowers here (that's why our home made honey vary).
