When you carry on with your lives, there are many things that you and I will not usually pay attention to. One of these things are bees, those tiny fuzzy creatures. But did you know that they are vanishing faster than ever? Imagine this: a quarter of every known bee species haven’t been spotted in 30 long years. But don’t let their size fool you; these little buddies have some serious workload. They pollinate over 5,000 plants every single day – talk about busy bees!

Well as a project to raise awareness Flyingflowers.co.uk launched a buzzing idea – a bumblebee retirement-home! Yep, you heard that right. We wanted to spread the word about these vital pollinators and their dwindling numbers. So, we rolled out the red carpet for our adorable bumble buddies, giving them a sweet retreat to kick back and relax. Scroll down to check out this very cool idea that has come to life below.

A sugar water fountain, fields of blooming flowers, and even some cool interiors. And of course, a royal suite fit for a queen bee – because why not? These little creatures were well taken care by the watchful eye of a seasoned beekeeper, ensuring their stay was nothing short of delightful. With over 270 types of bees buzzing around the UK, from carder bees to buff-tailed bumble bees, these critters play a crucial role in our ecosystem.

But it’s not just about the honeybees and bumblebees; solitary bees are also unnoticed heroes, pollinating away without a colony to call home. Even if these loners do not live in hives, but they do their parts in hard work. A small red-mason bee pollinates over 120 times more than a honeybee can! Now that’s some serious work done.
