No Shortage of Bees in Kanata

I read somewhere recently that bees are a dying breed because of insecticide use.  That’s just not true here in Ottawa’s suburb of Kanata!  Every garden I have worked in this summer has had lots of bees, in fact I have been stung a few times.   For example, look carefully at this sedum; it’s loaded with bees…

Tomorrow I have to figure out a way to move seven of these plants in a garden I am working on this week without getting these bees upset. The plan is to aim a hose at the plant from a distance to gently move the bees from one plant at a time so I can dig out the plant.   I am not sure what I will do when I get to the last plant full of bees!
