A poem about solitary bees written by Bob-Bee (@Bobbidazzl3r on Twitter) for Solitary Bee Week 2019

Deep in a hole or in a hotel

These are the bees we know so well

Collecting leaves or bits of mud

Pollinating flowers and doing good

Leafcutter, Mason, Ashy and Flower

All give nature it’s mighty power

And even though they live alone

They will always build a neat lil home
