A sunflower actually has one- to two-thousand tiny disc flowers, making it a one-stop pollen-mart for bees.
American Indians are believed to have begun cultivating sunflowers as early as 3000 BC--with the help of their honey-making neighbors, of course.
"The world was really one bee yard, and the same rules work fine in both places. Don't be afraid....Don't even think about swatting....Above all, send the bees love. Every little thing wants to be loved." ~Sue Monk Kidd
