Clover blooms, the experts say, are an important food source for our honeybees. They are humble little blooms we take for granted. We walk on them without thought, except perhaps to absently note that maybe we should mow the grass. They are hardy and sweet, full of the sugary stuff bees crave. Such an important part of our world should be celebrated, I thought. So I did a light and airy interpretation of the honeyed blossom at a scale that befits such a crucial part of our ecosystem.
Next time you see them popping up in your yard or a field, send a little nod of appreciation to these humble little nutritional powerhouses.
