Lots of flowers provide abundant nectar and pollen for bees. All Bees get all of their carbohydrates from floral nectar and all of their protein from floral pollen.
Bees rely on flowers to supply them with the food they need to survive. Some flowers (e.g. tomatoes) provide only pollen, the main source of protein for bees. Other flowers (e.g. clovers) provide both nectar and pollen, thus providing both protein and carbohydrates.

Climate change is a reality. Earth has gone through climate change cycles throughout millennia, and now, the +7,861,040,000 (billions) people in the world are experiencing this change.
Manufacturing Corporations around the world are the ones that have been destroying the quality of nature, air, and water. Big international manufacturing corporations (from all over the world) are the guilty ones, but, they want to put the guilt on us, citizens. No, it is on them, not on us. They are awfully greedy. They dump their toxic waste in rivers and lakes and air. These corporations don’t care about the earth and well being of humanity.

We, as responsible humans need to do everything in our power to stop them from keeping on polluting our beautiful earth and all nature in it.
There is hope. I know that. Because we all, individually have the best interest in making out of this earth, a wonderful place to live.
Begonia fulgurata, a new species discovered in northern Thailand. Begonia fulgurata resembles B. integrifolia, a widespread species in Southeast Asia, in having tubers, erect stem with hairy leaves, and a periodically dormant habit.
However, the new species is sharply distinct in its lamina densely hirsute (vs sparsely puberulous) and with maroon patches and silvery-white veins

New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people, it’s also gloriously uncrowded.
It is made up of two main islands and numerous smaller ones. Around three-quarters of the population lives on the North Island, which is also home to the capital, Wellington.

Agriculture is the economic mainstay, but manufacturing and tourism are important. Visitors are drawn to the glacier-carved mountains, lakes, beaches, and thermal springs. Because of the islands’ geographical isolation, much of the flora and fauna are unique to the country.
