I also have a garden and I absolutely love gardening. I also would love to have bees but I think I do not have enough time. Maybe some time in the future I will also have some bees. I love the plants and flowers in my garden. I have so many different flowers and sometimes I also deliver flowers to friends in order to make them happy.
