Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for all the blessings we have received. Did you ever stop to wonder how much of your Thanksgiving dinner is possible because of honey bees?

Wonderful article! Makes one stop and think about all the things we take for advantage on a daily basis. We need to thank the Good Lord for giving us the honey bees and thank you Margaret for enlightening us. We all need to stop and be thankful for the things we have that we take advantage of every day. Without our honey bees we would surely be without a lot.

You are most welcome Christine.

How much of your dinner is there because honey bees pollinated the plants?

There wouldn't be much left on my table if the food that the honey bees pollinated was removed. Blinking

Smiling Christine

Enjoy your dinner as much as the honey bees enjoyed pollinating the plants for the food you eat.

I enjoy all the bounty of the bees, including their honey, every day! I hope the honeybees make a big recovery from whatever has caused their numbers to decrease.

Renee I'm still hearing people say they are seeing more bees in their area so maybe in some places they are making a comeback.
