About the Design

Lovely bumblebees collecting pollen and nectar are found buzzing around the garden in this

collection of fabrics.

This summer while in Scotland, I read Dave Goulson's fascinating book "A Sting in the Tale" which is all about his research on bumblebees. Bumblebees know how to find their way back to the hive by visual markers. When they venture out for the first time, they circle around their hive developing their own map. They are amazing pollinators as they use their wings to "buzz" the pollen out of flowers but they operate at a slower pace than their cousins the honeybees. They thrive on the pollen and nectar of wildflowers and are especially important in tomato farming. Bumblebees are more mild mannered than honeybees and wasps and only sting if really aggravated but they can sting more than once!
