By David Kraft on July 2, 2017 in Flowers, Summer Flowers, Sunflowers. 0 Comments

What is more peaceful than relaxing in your own backyard during the summer? We love long sunny afternoons in a backyard oasis of lounge chairs, lemonade, and peace. Sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Make this serene day even more beautiful by inviting butterflies to your afternoon - it is as easy as adding a few beautiful flowers to your patio or yard. Butterfly and bee gardens are a natural way to both help the environment and add color and interest to your outdoor space - and Nanz & Kraft Florists are here to help you to cultivate the perfect plants and flowers to do just that. Why Bees? The honeybee population is in dramatic decline globally, as well as here in the US. Bees are critical to the ecosystem, especially in the area of cultivating the food (vegetables, fruit and grains) that we need. Playing even a small part to encourage the return of the bees is important - and experts assure us that when gathering nectar and pollinating, bees will almost never sting. Just leave them to do their job, and they will ignore you.  Read More about Insect-Resistant Butterfly & Bee Gardens
