Honey Bee, Come Find Me

April is National Lawn and Garden Month and the perfect time to beautify your lawn and garden space! Everyone is clearing out the weeds and debris from winter’s past, making room for vegetables, spices, and flowers! Flowers, such as zinnias and begonias, make excellent additions to a colorful garden during the Houston summer months. Vines are also very popular! 

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Bluebonnet is the Texas State Flower? Over 40 miles of bluebonnet trails can be found South of downtown Dallas in Ennis.  Tens of thousands of people travel during the 6 week blooming period to see them! 

Flowers are beautiful and attract one of nature’s greatest pollinators: the honey bee. Bees play a role in every aspect of the ecosystem and support the growth of trees, flowers, and plants.  All worker bees are female and produce a teaspoon of honey in a lifetime. The type of flower the bees take their nectar from determines the honey’s flavor. It’s so important to take a moment to embrace the importance that such a small animal can have on sustaining our world. Mother nature is powerful, and a force to be reckon with!  At Three Brothers Bakery, we use honey as a key ingredient in many of our products. We also carry raw honey in our store to support other small local businesses just like us!
