They’re part of the world-wide movement towards ‘apicentric’ beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal.

I thing I will hang a few of these once I am sure I have planted enough diverse flowering material to support colonies for the whole season: this means waiting for a few of the flowering trees to grow up.
nepeta in a version of that kanaya light armour you guys like so much. this is for linksideburns for a costume, i don’t normally do requests or regular homestuck (only bloodbent since it’s partially mine) but i do do design refs.
i assumed it was original flavour nepeta and not red, but if it is red i’ll just make an alternate one with a hood instead of a draping arm (since this is based off the disciple’s clothing… it would be the sufferer’s instead, in the bloodbent version) and grey & red colour instead of green & gold.
