This beautiful bee bath was created by Sally in Australia. She places blossoms amid the stones to encourage the bees to stop by for a sip. Visit her blog Under The Mango Tree for more inspiration.
Bee baths don't just benefit bees. Many beneficial insects will enjoy the access to fresh water. If there is an area of your garden that is infested with aphids or other leaf-sucking pests, placing a bee bath nearby will encourage lady bugs and other predatory insects and arachnids to the area as well. Before you know it, the aphids will have been eaten up.
