Buzzfeed: Why Filling Your Yard with Bee-Friendly Flowers is Environmentally Ethical

As homeowners, landscapers, and flower-lovers, creating foraging areas for bees is mutually beneficial. Strategic planting of hardy, pollinator-friendly perennials well-adapted to the prevailing climatic conditions beautifies and landscape and feeds the pollinators.
