Bee housing extraordinaire

I really hope this link holds because the many pictures are great.
The site is German and so had to be linked through google translation. But the pictues say it all even if not translated. Make sure to scroll all the way down, some of the best pictures are at the bottom of the page.
An arrow pointing to the right,within the text, will take you to different pages on the site. The first arrow leads to the trail in a botanical garden where that particular bee housing was built. You can see some of the flowers planted along the paths.
And if you search through there are some directions and ideas. If interested explore the site by clicking those right facing arrows.

Great Picture

Found this site while visiting Busy Bee Girl's Blog . If you like information about bees you will love her blog.

Very cool. I have seen similar things in catalogs from the UK! I bought a small house like that once and donated it to my condo garden!

I thought so. What a great addition to a native planting area at botanical gardens. Let people see the difference between native and honey bees. Sure to help diminish fears of bees in general as these bees are so non-threatening.

Wow, that is a really neat site, Gloria! I'm going to add a link to this post to the others you shared for the Design Workshop on wildlife in the garden over at Gardening Gone Wild. Many thanks!
