There are many sorts of bees, I knew this but never considered it as you only hear about the partial devastation of them from a commercial angle. Good
food for thought.
Same with frogs. I think we're more aware of them, however, in the chain of biodiversity for which they are necessary. And when you hear the silence
where you used to hear the chorus of burping hums, you wonder, just how toxic is the environment already...
I used to work on a biodynamic farm/garden/woods and my garden was subsequently neglected a little as it was too much like a busman's holiday, but my
boy is now old enough (6) to actually genuinely help with stuff and put in a bit of a shift - he's even retained the interest despite a little
slave-driving from me over the past few weeks.
He's quite the nature buff, we often take take walks through local forests and hills and there is rarely a question on trees and such that i cannot
answer there and then and he's picked up my own love for the natural world as well as crafting. He even enjoys clearing up after pruning the hedge
and mowing the lawn, though i suspect that this is more an act of rebellion against my own, er "shabby-chic". He will no doubt grow up to be an
accountant or something similar.
I agree on taking responsibly from forests btw - 2 years back i saw a bunch of wild Rowan babies growing by a well used path in a forest - i knew that
most would get trampled. There were about twelve of them, so i took three of the "most likely to get stomped" back home and they all survive to this
day, one with my neighbour in exchange for sunflowers and strawberries.
