Check out Plough to Pantry Magazine's Winter 2016 issue to read Bee City USA director Phyllis Stiles' article about how bumblebees have evolved to survive winter and sustain their species.
There you will see Linda Santell's whimsical illustration of a mated bumblebee queen passing the dark winter days by a glowing fire, where she knits booties for her spring colony. You can support Bee City USA by ordering your print through ETSY.
Thanks to Plough to Pantry and to Linda Santell for helping us to spread awareness about pollinator life cycles!
